This off-season is one that the Cubs, front office and business operations alike, and the team’s fans have been pointing to as a time to step forward.  The business staff is getting their much needed Wrigley renovation and the WGN portion of the games will be contracted at some point.  As far as the baseball...

Ivy's Roundup: Goodbye to Wrigley
The Cubs are on a bus or a charter plane to Milwaukee right now for tonight’s series, but we have a bit of a sad as this means no more Cubs games in Chicago this year.  Sometime soon, the Cubs and the city of Chicago will start digging holes and actively renovating Wrigley Field, so... Read more »
