  • Readers' Q&A: Mark Gonzales' Cubs mailbag

    Readers' Q&A: Mark Gonzales' Cubs mailbag
    There are lot of things about the Cubs’ plan that I get. What Theo Epstein is doing with prospects is smart. They need new grandstands and better player amenities. I get all that. What I don't get is the Ricketts' insistence on all the outfield signage, and their claim that these changes are necessary for revenue. This team, when halfway competitive, is one of the three most popular teams in baseball. Attendance is good, they sell tons of merchandise to their huge national fan base, and they surely have a huge new TV contract on the way. The Rays would die to be in their situation. If progress is really dependent on the rooftops and on uglying the ballpark with all this signage, it makes me wonder if this ownership was financially capable of running a big market franchise in the first place. --Mike, Sarasota, Fla.

    99 problems, Cubs-style
    The pieces aren't in place yet for the Cubs, but the plan is and so is the braintrust. Whether Tom Ricketts, Theo Epstein and Dale Sveum will succeed remains a mystery, and the fact is there's more to be done. A lot more. So on the cusp of Wrigley...
