BEST-CASE SCENARIO: CSN Chicago's Steve Stone said the Ricketts are "going to be the best thing that ever happened to the Chicago Cubs." Stone: "I don’t know if they’re going to win right away, but they will win, and one of the things that you can be ensured of is that they’re in it for the long haul, and that’s important. ... There’s always been a face attached to every team that won the World Series. I think that’s the way it’s supposed to work” (“Chicago Tribune Live,” CSN Chicago, 8/25).

DESERT STORM: In Arizona, Sonu Munshi reported Mesa Mayor Scott Smith, City Manager Chris Brady and state House Speaker Kirk Adams are "headed to Chicago mid-September to do whatever they can" to keep the Cubs for Spring Training. The timing of the trip is "no coincidence," as Mesa officials see the sale to Ricketts as a "way to proceed with negotiations on improved spring training facilities for the Cubs" (EAST VALLEY TRIBUNE, 8/25).
