Ricketts says Cubs’ off-season has gone as planned:
“Right after the season, Theo and Jed and all the guys, they have a lot of different scenarios,” Cubs owner Tom Ricketts said on the Mully and Hanley Show on Monday morning. “I think they would probably call this their A plan because I think it’s what they wanted to do more than anything.
“They were aggressive, and they wanted to make sure they could execute in what they thought were our best interests for next season. And they went ahead and did it.”
