Here's the Sullivan article and the upcoming schedule of Cubs games on WGN-TV for 2019.

I actually believe MLB has already done this.

I agree with the points about Arne Harris and Harry. The writer, the impish Paul Sullivan was weeping uncontrollably as he wrote this and he got a punch or two at the Sox, as always. Sullivan is a 💩

When Sullivan was the Sox beat reporter he’d regularly say, “the announced attendance...” as his stupid little attendance jab. During the Cubs rebuild where there were YUGE differences between announced and actual attendance Sully never said a word. Dweeb.

But...but...he’s a Sox fan!

I find it hilarious that he once got called on the carpet by the previous Cubbie regime for not being enough of a company man. How was it possible that the Cubs didn’t see him as company man.

By the way, I was at Soxfest a couple of weeks ago and eagerly anticipated seeing a current player or an all-time great in the bar. Who did I see instead? HIM. Yuuuuuuuucch

It's official: The Cubs are partnering with Sinclair Media for their new Marquee Sports Network.

I hope Comcast and other carriers balk at and push back against high carriage fees that I expect Sinclair and the Cubs will be looking to charge each customer.

Here's a good synopsis of what the new network means for all of us. Sounds like those of us with cable may not have the ability to opt-out of CubVision and will get dinged with another subscription fee. No matter how they spin it, this is not a fan-friendly move.

The same situation with the Yankees' YES Net, every ones receives the station or no one receives the station, everyone in or everyone out.

Post The Cubs just killed the golden goose

This will not turn out as well as the Cubs think it will. Talk about killing the goose that laid the golden egg. At some point, there will be Cub fans that will say enough! Agree with a previous poster who said Sportsvision was 20 years ahead of its time. Depending on how the White Sox respond to this might help them get a few more fans. But watch this year over at Clark and Addison. There will be swaths of empty seats. People are tapped out. And if they're not going to games they'll be cutting the cable in 2020 if it means ponying out for $$$ to watch games they were already getting either over the air or on cable.

David Kaplan has signed a multi-year deal with NBC Sports Chicago and will NOT be jumping ship to the new Cubs/Sinclair Network.
