Tom Ricketts (ok, well, it’s actually the whole Ricketts family, but Tom is the face, and will henceforth be the proxy owner of the Cubs for all purposes hereafter in perpetuity) was introduced as the official owner of the Chicago Cubs yesterday. And despite an 11 a.m. press conference, which was supposed to be the unveiling, Tom was all over the place giving interviews. Obviously he decided a coordinated media blitz was the way to go. I don’t know if he’s right, but I do like that he’s thinking about things like this.

I won’t cover what’s already been covered everywhere else – like here, or here, or hell, even here on CNBC.

But I will pull out a quote from the MLB.com interview he did. I think it says everything we need to know for now (and everything we need to get our hopes up):

MLB.com: Did you ever consider purchasing another team?

Ricketts: No. Just the Cubs.

That’s right. There’s a true fan in charge.
