If newspaper coverage was a critical factor, it would probably have been better to do this after the Cubs convention. That (and the Sox equivalent) is designed to generate stories.

A more interesting comparison might be if the Cubs sign Ivan Rodriguez in the next few weeks.

FOR THAT REASON ALONE........
THe sox should do everything in their power
to sign IROD before the Cubs do....
or all this talk were doing now, and media coverage
to come, will all go down the drain, because
all the stations will Interrupt the regular scheduled
programming, and that would MAKE FRONT PAGE.
You heard it here first. IROD signs w cubs...it will
be FRONT PAGE both papers........

and there will go our brief fling with being the story in chicago....

I don't think that this is in the cards. IROD would be a big help this year, but he undoubtably wants a multi-year deal. I can't see KW agreeing to that with MO less than a season away from moving up to the majors.
