On the Chicago Cubs’ opening day, the ball club’s owners hope to reach an agreement to renovate Wrigley Field. Wrigley renovations may include ballpark-sized parking garage

Mayor Rahm Emanuel personally joined weekend negotiations between the city and the Ricketts family; but absent from the talks was anyone representing the Wrigley rooftop club owners; they’re getting their updates from Alderman Tom Tunney.

An agreement is likely to include additional compensation for the rooftops if new screens and signs in the outfield obstruct their view.

    I am sorry to say that after 47 years I am officially done with the Cubs. They will never see another dime of my money. Not only do they suck with no end in site, but I cannot stand the idea of traveling into that unsafe sh*thole of a city, paying ridiculous prices for parking, food and tickets, and hope that I don't have to use the restroom because of the overflowing urine on the floors. Wrigley is a dump whose time is past. Out with the old and in with the new. And screw the rooftop owners too. They got a free ride long enough. Move to Rosement, build a new facility, and give the Cubs a chance to win. Chicago is run by idiots and is infested with crime. Why would anyone want to go there anymore?
