The owner of the Chicago Cubs threatened to move the team out of Wrigley Field for the first time publicly if his plans for a big, new video screen are blocked, saying Wednesday he needs new advertising revenue to help bankroll a $500 million renovation of the storied ballpark.
Through his wheeling and dealing, Jim Hendry helped the Chicago Cubs reach the playoffs three times as general manager. He also saddled them with big contracts and underachievers to go with a few troublemakers — and now, he’s out of a job.
CHICAGO (AP) — Cubs right-hander Carlos Zambrano has completed has anger management sessions and reported to Arizona on Thursday to resume throwing.
