(Chicago Trib)   Tom Ricketts is trying to convince the city of Chicago to no longer consider Wrigley Field a landmark, given that the only reason it's gotten that status is because its home team has continually sucked for a record 110 years   (chicagotribune.com) divider line 51

Considering the team is developing a hotel and entertainment site across the street from Wrigley, it's doubtful they would move after making the investment. Seriously, who would spend money to stay in a Wrigleyville hotel with no baseball team other than someone in town for the nightly Sweet Brah Post Fratboy convention?

That was his dad (who bought him the team).

I'm not sure how far that apple is from the tree - the sister (also involved with the team as a co-owner) is a prominent LGBT spokesperson/activist. Tom, while conservative, did object to Joe's political message (whether it was just to save face with Obama's friend in the Mayor's office or actual discomfort over that particular element of the conservative movement ... speculate away).

Erm you mean where the McDonalds is? I haven't been to Wrigleyville in a few weeks but I only vaguely remember any type of limited construction next to the McDonalds. No other side of Wrigley has anything but bars and rooftop venues.

"When we bought the team we kind of understood some of the restrictions. What I didn't understand was we were the only team in baseball to have these restrictions."

Then your a dumbass for not investigating that before you bought the Cubs.

Yes, you know when you buy a building under historic guidance, which also gives you a bunch of tax credits to maintain it, don't be too surprised that there are a bunch of regulations regarding changing the structure.

And while I can understand the need for extra night games during the weekdays, since the Cubs usually sell out of all the day games on Saturday (and Sunday), I don't know exactly what the Cubs gain by getting more night games on those days. More beer sales at night?

You apparently DNRTFA. He is more than willing to pay for the entire restoration. He just wants the same means of doing so as every other team in the league.

If you've ever been through the guts of Wrigley, it's horrendous. Anyone calling BS on the "Blame the stadium for the teams issues" needs to take a tour. There are AAA clubs that have nicer amenities.

I'd totally ease a few restrictions if it meant getting Chicago off the hook for any renovation. The improvements to signage so far has been tactful, let's see where this goes. We might even get a proper pisser out of it.

Nope - the hotel/condo/entertainment complex would be on Clark street. Essentially, they want to tear down a bunch of classic bars and restaurants and replace them with a Hyatt. No more Goose Island, no more Mullens, no more Salt and Pepper Diner. Not exactly thrilled, myself.

You should have thought of that before your family pissed off the mayor of Chicago by promising race-based attacks on his former boss. Now STFU and fix up the clubhouse and the underground batting cage and maybe you'd win a couple more games.

You've woefully underestimated the importance of a locker room. Try getting mentally prepared for a game when your jock keeps rubbing the rear end of the guy next to you.

It was also an entry level example to the rest of the facilities. When Ozzie Guillen made the comment about dodging rats in the batting cage, he wasn't kidding.
 
2013-01-20 08:11:27 AM  
The facilities weren't the reason the Cubs blew it in 03 or their offense disappeared in 08.

My thing is Ricketts is completely ignoring the part where Wrigley saves their revenue stream in bad years. There are a crap ton of people who show up because of Wrigley. You mess with that, you're just a bad NL Central team.

I thought that was pretty much dead (and I don't think it was Cubs-related, it was a different developer who wanted to do that and I don't think the Ricketts own that land?) and that this new hotel complex is actually supposed to be on the McDonald's spot.

Seriously. Look at the White Sox. They tore down Comiskey and built a cookie-cutter park... right before Camden Yards came along and made the place instantly obsolete. They've been trying to de-cookie-cutter the place ever since. But without Comiskey, they're just... a team. That's just kind of... there.

There was just an article this past week about it. They bought the building where the McDonalds is and entered into an agreement with the McD coroporation that the new hotel will have a McDonalds in it.

The Ricketts family is offering to pay for the renovations on their own, they just want to operate their business as any other business owner does.

If you've never been there, you can't understand. It's all about location. That entire neighborhood is called "Wrigleyville" for a reason. The Cubs ARE the neighborhood (to the chagrin of a few morons who moved there knowing full well what it was about, only to constantly b*tch about the noise/parking/chaos during ball season). And Wrigley itself is one of the nicest venues to watch a sporting event in the country. It's intimate, it's traditional, and I'm sorry, but nothing tops sitting in the sun on a nice 80-something day with a crappy Old Style in one hand, a dog in the other, the scent of grills wafting over from the rooftops, and Soriano striking out for the 4th time of the game (gotta take the good with the bad), and then packing in to Murphy's Bleachers, Cubby Bear, or Sluggers after the game (or any of the countless bars within a few blocks) to talk about next year.

And this is when the team sucks. When they are good, the whole area is freaking explosive. There's nothing like it. Even the best tailgating pales in comparison.

The park AND the neighborhood are essential. At least the Yankees had the sense to build the new park next to the old one, but it was still a mistake. The Red Sox got it right, and are the correct model for how the Cubs are proceeding.

I am sick to death of the neighborhood association and rooftop bar owners; they are the only people who care about the signage at Wrigley or gametimes.

I'm starting to think that the first plan they rolled out (using public money) was a red herring to whip up public backlash and get to THIS plan. Emmanuel will do what he can to ease the restrictions now that he has the cover of saying "Hey, they wanted tax dollars, but I said 'no.' This is a reasonable alternative."

I sort of get the rooftop owners since what they paid for where they are only cost that because of the rooftop, but they also don't have an inalienable right to be able to sell tickets to their roof to watch a game they aren't in any way putting on (well, they weren't at all until they started having to pay the Cubs a cut of the revenue).

The neighborhood association though? Good god, the area has been full-on Disneyland For Douchebags for something like 15 years now. They've had night games for about 25 years. 95% of the people there, minimum (probably over 99%), moved to that neighborhood in that time frame, so they should have known what they were moving to.
