The Chi-Town Blackmailer

According to ESPN:

Chicago Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts said Wednesday that without new signage in the outfield at Wrigley Field, the team will consider leaving the historic ballpark.

It's believed to be the first time Ricketts has publicly floated the idea of leaving Wrigley, although he maintained throughout his speech at the City Club of Chicago that his preference is to remain at Wrigley and improve the park with a $500 million renovation.

"I'm not sure how anyone is going to stop the signs in the outfield, but if it comes to the point that we don't have the ability to do what we need to do in our outfield, then we're going to have to consider moving," Ricketts told reporters, according to the Chicago Tribune. "It's as simple as that."

Ricketts said the team needs to install a 6,000-square-foot video board at Wrigley because it would bring in much-needed revenue.
