Ricketts Could Be In Line For Big Tax Breaks If Wrigley Gets On Registry Of Historic Places

HEALTHY DOSE OF SKEPTICISM: In Chicago, Rick Morrissey writes any success the Cubs have is "not going to be tied" to the new video board that will be installed at Wrigley as part of the renovation. It is "going to come down to" what President of Baseball Operations Theo Epstein does, and "more likely than not, it won’t matter how much money he’s holding in his hand as a lure" (CHICAGO SUN-TIMES, 4/18). In Illinois, Mike Imrem wrote of Cubs Chair Tom Ricketts' claim the team will win the World Series if the renovation deal goes through, "Sorry, but I just can't believe Ricketts on this one. I already must accept too many of life's mysterious treasures on faith, among them girls, golf and God" (Illinois DAILY HERALD, 4/17).
