Tribune Co. said Monday it plans to sell the Chicago Cubs at the end of the 2007 baseball season, putting one of its most valuable assets on the block as it simultaneously announced that real estate magnate Sam Zell was acquiring the media conglomerate.
Cubs could go for over $600 million according to the AP. And of course even after all is said and done, the Trib still keeps yappin'.
"The Cubs have been an important part of Tribune for more than 25 years and are one of the most storied franchises in all of sports," said Dennis FitzSimons, Tribune chairman, president and chief executive officer. "In our last season of ownership, the team has one mission, and that is to win for our great fans."
The Trib has made my beloved Cubbies storied all right. And it seems appropriate to me that they should be sold after the 100 years of nothingness.
