City Hall May Have Changed Game For Cubs And Rooftops

City Hall May Have Changed Game For Cubs And Rooftops

I reported recently that the Cubs and Rooftop Association were once again closing in on a potential deal.

I also had mentioned City Hall would be brought in as a closer in such a scenario. It sounds like City Hall has indeed gotten involved, and it appears to be somewhat of a game changer.

The city is taking center stage at these negotiations and has proposed an alternative solution that is gaining some real traction, according to a source.

Even all of the Waveland rooftops seem to like what they are hearing.

A meeting held today lasted an hour and a half and apparently had a very positive tenor.

So much so that my source would be surprised if a deal isn't reached by Friday.

  • Or, maybe nothing happened.

    I'll wait for the press release or for someone to go ballistic on The Score. One or the other will eventually happen.

  • In reply to jack:

    Is that a shot at post? Because you didn't wait, you read it right?

  • In reply to Tom Loxas:

    I read it. I took it as that some source said something indefinite was going to happen, but there was a "positive tenor."

    You can take what you want whether I think anything concrete was said in the post, and, for that matter, what I think about anonymous sources.

  • In reply to jack:

    No Jack, I get that, I just actually wasn't sure what you were saying.

    Anyway the point was City Hall me a proposal that seemed widely acceptable.

    Will all be waiting for the press release.

  • I'm cautiously optimistic. No slight on your reporting but last time things were 'close' the Cubs spent the convention weekend carpet-bombing the RTs and things went bad again.

  • In reply to rgonzale:

    Not exactly, I posted after the convention and everyone knows now they were close. Also had details like Bud deal and LF situation but thanks guys.

  • In reply to Tom Loxas:

    Like I said, I'm not knocking your reporting. Just seemed like defeat was snatched from the jaws of victory last go 'round.

  • In reply to rgonzale:

    For sure. I'm sorry, have to be careful my dryness comes accords as angry or defensive easily. Either way, I'm with you. It will be over when it's over. However, they all want it to be.

  • In reply to rgonzale:

    You are right to be skeptical. I am too. I asked are you sure no real issues creeping around corner? It was just one LF RT that freaked out last time anyway.

  • Any clues on the alternative solution?

  • In reply to Matt Mosconi:

    All I can say is creative money movement.

    This issue more than anything else really needs to be put to bed. The whole rebuild is riding on it. I think i can speak for many when I say we are pretty sick and tired of this whole RTO debacle. The Cubs need revenue streams. The revenue streams will help finance everything they want to do from Wrigley renovations to signing FA.

    Let's get it done already!

    I think the FO would readily agree.
