Chicago Cubs Chairman, Tom Ricketts, is pleased with the steps the franchise is making. For Ricketts, the decision to renovate Wrigle Field, partner with corporate sponsors, and rebuild the roster, are all a byproduct of one goal: Win.
“Obviously, when things aren’t going the right direction people want you to take more short-term decisions or they want to second-guess things you’re doing,” Ricketts said. “But we always knew that it was going to take a while, we always knew that there was a plan in place and we wanted to build a foundation that was more a team that could win on a consistent basis and you just can’t do that overnight and you can’t do that by writing one big check.”
