Commentary: This seems to be a very strange Cubs Con

The winter hasn’t been a ton of fun, but the somber tone for Cubs Con seemed to start with Jed Hoyer’s pre-convention appearance yesterday afternoon on 670 The Score. Full Story »

Maybe the ice storm your experiencing has affected your thoughts.
The fans are mostly booing Rickets is because he has taken the
Cubs out of their households with the greedy tv package.

Ricketts was receiving boos from about 50% when he walked out onto the stage- it was probably 90% when he mentioned Marquee. As for the ice storm- I stayed inside, so I'm quite certain my thought process is OK. ;)

There is two sides to the new Marquee Cub Tv package. Yeah, I'm definitely going to miss being able to just turn on the local stations (although in rural central Illinois I did not get full coverage) to watch the Cub games. However, lets see if the Cubs are willing to put that extra income back into the Cubs via future signings.

I think you may see that in a couple of years, but the Cubs wants to stay under the luxury tax, which will be tough as players demand more and more money.

Yeah, I meant post luxury cap situation. The Marquee money should go along way in resigning the Cub core players in the future and free agents.
