    And it ain't Mark Cuban.

    Kind of my reaction, too. Tribune, for all its troubles, had a much better run than most previous Cubs owners -- six playoff appearances in 27 years. Better hope the Ricketts can improve on that.

    Did the sale include the ballpark?
  4. Had Zell not dragged his feet, the sale could have netted an extra $200-400 million. Dumbass.

    Anybody else laughing their ass off over the fact the Sun-Times scooped the Trib on this?
  6. Yes.

    Death to them if they change it to TD Waterhouse Ricketts park at Wrigley Field...

    If he's a huge Cubs fan, he shouldn't mind spending money. I just hope he's not a meddler.
