That doesn't take into account another $300+ million to finance the renovations. The money has to come from somewhere. And, credit is hardly a good way to go. Owning the Cubs wasn't the fun and cool thing Tom Ricketts thought it would be. I'd have to wonder if he still thought they would sell out every game if the team sucked ass.
