After being on the market for two and a half years, the Chicago Cubs have new owners. Yesterday the Tribune Company sold the team and Wrigley Field to the Ricketts family for $845 million. Not a bad investment considering they bought the team from the Wrigleys in 1981 for $20.5 million. The price paid is the most for any major league team.
How successful will the Cubs be now? We will see what moves are made this winter. Hopefully Milton Bradley has played his last game. The Cubs have a decent core of players and don't really need a lot. There were too many injuries this past year and there really isn't much you can do about that. I remember getting my hopes up when the Tribune Company bought the team. Hopefully this year will be the one we have been waiting for.
