Cubs update

A lot of news coming from the Chicago Cubs organization.  First, it looks like they have a new General Manager.

Second, the City of Mesa has released the agreements for the spring training facilities and the deal surrounding the Wrigleyville development.  The Wrigleyville portion agreements are very interesting in that they give the Cubs ownership the first crack at developing the areas around the stadium.  However, they are set as such that they won't be able hold it indefinitely without developing it.

So, unlike some of the other new stadiums which are smack in the middle of undeveloped areas, hopefully this means there will be stuff to do surrounding the stadium in a relatively short amount of time.
