Will Have Influence In Cubs Sale
CUBS: In Chicago, Neil Hayes writes MLB Commissioner Bud Selig and his “close advisors ultimately will decide who buys the Cubs, and nobody in Selig’s inner circle is said to be more influential” than White Sox Owner Jerry Reinsdorf. Sources said that “even though he is not on the ownership committee, and even if he recused himself from the executive council to eliminate the appearance of a conflict,” Reinsdorf could “wield his influence behind the scenes.” A former baseball exec said, “He doesn’t have to be on a committee to talk to Bud” (CHICAGO SUN-TIMES, 4/17).
