Eventually the Cubs’ ballpark is gonna be nice and new and updated and awesome. For now, though, its renovation has caused a lot of displacement, noise, traffic problems and . . . rats:

“The rats have been running rampant. I’m not kidding you,” Kata said. “There are people in the alley and there are still rats running around and it’s daylight . . . We’ve never experienced anything like what we’ve seen the last 12 months,” Findlay said. “We’ve had rats almost on a daily basis walking all around the neighborhood. In the streets, on the sidewalks, on people’s porches.”

Rats. Ratso. Ratso Rizzo. Anthony Rizzo. It all fits!
