TIME FLIES: The TRIBUNE's Sullivan notes the Cubs are "hoping the City Council pushes up its vote on the proposal" by Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Alderman Tom Tunney to "allow for up to 46 night games." This would "allow them to schedule" five 3:05pm CT Friday starts this year, with "additional night games starting in 2014." Hearings are "scheduled for next week." The City Council "approved up to 18 night games a year in 1988 and gradually increased the limit to its current 30, in place since 2004" (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 5/29).
