  • Readers' Q&A: Mark Gonzales' Cubs mailbag

    Readers' Q&A: Mark Gonzales' Cubs mailbag
    There are lot of things about the Cubs’ plan that I get. What Theo Epstein is doing with prospects is smart. They need new grandstands and better player amenities. I get all that. What I don't get is the Ricketts' insistence on all the outfield signage, and their claim that these changes are necessary for revenue. This team, when halfway competitive, is one of the three most popular teams in baseball. Attendance is good, they sell tons of merchandise to their huge national fan base, and they surely have a huge new TV contract on the way. The Rays would die to be in their situation. If progress is really dependent on the rooftops and on uglying the ballpark with all this signage, it makes me wonder if this ownership was financially capable of running a big market franchise in the first place. --Mike, Sarasota, Fla.

    Reader Q&A: Paul Sullivan's Cubs mailbag
    I understand that the Cubs want to build the team the "right way" by building the farm system. What I do not understand is why they can't both build the farm system and try to build a winner right now. I think it is wrong to ask the fans who have waited...

    Cubs can only improve in 2013 (but don't bet on it)

    Cubs can only improve in 2013 (but don't bet on it)
    The Cubs were built to lose 100 games, so what was with the obsession to avoid it? The actual issue is losing 100 games and still not getting the top pick in the draft. So Cub. I can understand players not wanting to be a part of 100 losses. I...
