Cubs owner Tom Ricketts makes a bold statement at yesterday’s presser announcing the renovations to Wrigley Field:
“This is going to improve the fan experience all the way around,” he said. “If this plan is approved, we will win the World Series.”
The thinking on this, apparently, is that the renovations will lead to more money which will lead to the Cubs being able to put a better team together. Of course, the Cubs have never lacked for money. They’ve lacked for good decisions. I suppose you can recover better from bad decisions if you have more money, but I’ve never really felt like the Cubs’ biggest issue was revenue.
