McKenna - Schwarz Paper Co. CEO; co-owns 20% of Bears with Pat Ryan; on Tribune (and, hence, Cubs) board (would have to resign to buy Sox); former chairman of ND board of trustees; son Andrew Jr. may challenge Sen. Peter Fitzgerald for GOP nomination in 2004.

Pritzker Family - Vast holdings include Hyatt hotel chain; pocket change they have could help Sox infinitely; suffered embarrassing scandal involving Superior Bank

Ryan - Aon Corporation CEO; co-owns 20% of Bears with McKenna; chairman of NU board of trustees; Ryan Field and Welsh-Ryan Arena are named for his family; would have to resign seat on Tribune board if he buys Sox

Zell - Real estate magnate; could be helpful if Sox had to do something with Comikey

It's a fantasy dream, but I thought we'd have fun with it.

I second that. This guy would spend his own money to improve Comiskey.

Hey, what happened to Watkins' attempt to buy the Angels, anyway? Does anybody know?

The Twins just blew him off; they never really wanted to sell him the team, particularly since it required that they open their books to him.

Additionally, I don't know if you guys know it or not, but the stadium deal that the state legislature passed fell through because Pohlad wouldn't promise to play in a new park in St. Paul if a referendum passed, so St. Paul isn't holding the referendum. So they're back to square one. Pohlad just wants the contraction money.

I think Bud Selig is doing everything he can to keep Watkins from buying *any* team. Watkins would actually invest in a team, and actually pay for a new stadium. Pohlad's just a goon. Minnesota agreed to pay for 2/3 of a new park, and he still wouldn't do it.

Great stuff, Nellie. Your analysis is spot-on, too (IMHO).

In light of these facts, I wish one of the "doom and gloom" sad sacks around here would respond with their own spin on how they can support MLB's negotiating position against the players union.

It would be truly entertaining watching them get caught up in their own underwear--defending their prior position while not toppling the new one they are forced to defend. Priceless!

Phil Rogers, let's hear it baby! I've got my machine guns dug in on high ground with enfilading crossfire; a killing zone that must be 800 meters across. Good luck overrunning my position.

God, what a massacre it would be!

Isn't it Cubbie Crack Blue? That's usually Flub Fans hopes of winning the division-a pipe dream.

Who wins an argument is usually pre-determined by who succeeds in defining the argument.

In this respect it is a lot like winning a military battle. The attackers get to choose the time, but the defenders get to choose the location.

This is outstanding ground for someone like me to defend. :gulp:

I know damned well there is no way Phil Rogers, or anybody else, could successfully make the argument on behalf of MLB's negotiating posture while simultaneously justifying the actions of Pohlad up in Minnesota. And just like in a battle, I might enjoy chewing up opponents foolish enough to attack me on this ground.
:gulp: :gulp:

Just calling 'em as I see 'em. :smile:
