Dear Mr. Ricketts

toyota wrigley field

Now I read what Cubs owner Mr. Ricketts had to say about his plans for Wrigley Field. Basically he said the Toyota Sign is going up, they are "studying" adding a Jumbotron, and selling the naming rights to Wrigley are "a real possibility."

Someone needs to sit that boy down and have a serious and I do mean serious talk with him. This is totally irrational thinking by an owner of the last shrine to Americas game. I guess my love affair with the cubs and the idea of professional baseball will end with the jumbotron at " CORPORATE SELLOUT FIELD".

I hope that a world series ring will fulfill your dreams Mr. Ricketts. Because you will be crushing the last bastion of hope for anyone who believes in doing what is right. I do at my ripe old age still believe that in the end it's not about who wins or loses but how you play the game!
