RICKETTS REAFFIRMS HIS WORD: In Illinois, Richard Klicki noted Cubs Chair Tom Ricketts on Tuesday "reaffirmed his commitment to renovating Wrigley Field and keeping the team in Chicago" during a speech at the fourth annual DuPage County Regional Business Outlook forum. Ricketts said that his proposed renovation to Wrigley is the "only priority for the Cubs and he is confident the owners, the city of Chicago and Wrigley Field neighbors will come to an agreement." Ricketts: "We really haven't played the other options card. We tried to take the high ground and we're really focused on hoping that everyone with incentive to restore and preserve and improve Wrigley Field will work toward the common goal, and I think we're getting really close to that" (Illinois DAILY HERALD, 5/8). USA TODAY's sports-section cover story deals with the Cubs' efforts to renovate Wrigley, with Bob Nightengale writing balls and strikes are "taking a back seat to beefs and strife" (USA TODAY, 5/9).
