So he can take credit if it pokes its head above ground. The Tribune only owns 5% of them but still carries water for the team's interests. And it's carrying a lot of water these days. I loved it when the paper used to tamper with its own players by pumping them up for potential trades.
A new knight on horseback to Save The Cubs. Another Lou, Dusty, Leo or maybe Frankie Frisch to bring the magic and light the fire.
