While an anonymous aide for Mayor Rahm Emanuel dismissed Rosemont’s overture to the Cubs and told the Sun-Times, “The idea that the Cubs would leave Wrigley Field is not something to be taken seriously,” the plot thickened according to a report from Crain’s Chicago Business.
Greg Hintz pointed out, the Cubs are distancing themselves from these conversations but have yet to rule them out.
According to the report, Dennis Culloton told DuPage County Board President Dan Cronin on Monday night that if a deal is not in place with the city by April 1, he does not know what the situation will be. As Greg Hintz reported, the Cubs focus is on reaching an agreement to rebuild Wrigley Field.
Dennis Culloton and Dan Cronin ran into one another at Monday night’s meeting of Choose DuPage, Mr. Culloton is on the agency’s board.
According to the report, Mr. Cronin acknowledged that it is highly unlikely the Cubs would leave Wrigley Field but if something changed, they would “be thrilled to sit down and try to work something out.”
