Night games appear to be sticking point in Wrigley deal

Chicago Ald. Tom Tunney says the number of night games at Wrigley Field appears to be the main sticking point in a deal for renovations at the stadium.

Tunney told the Chicago Tribune that the team and the city had a deal on the number of games on Tuesday.

But, the team changed its request a short time later to accommodate requests from Major League Baseball.

Cubs officials told residents that MLB could switch as many as six games from day to night, and they don’t want those to count towards their total of night games.

    How is anyone in that neighborhood in a position to make demands. Businesses are ~in~ business because of Wrigley. It's not like anyone moved into a home or business there and was shocked to find out a baseball stadium was next door…

    I hope the Cubs do move out, and the Greedy SOB's "negotiating" find out who needed who more.

    I'm a Sox fan, Wrigleyville doesn't realize how lucky they are to have bars and resturants next to the stadium . The city and neighbors should be doing what ever it take to keep them in that location, if i were Rickets I would say "Goodbye"
