At a cost of about $200 million, coming directly from the Ricketts Family.

The former Cub has nothing but nice things to say about the men who traded him.
Bryan LaHair isn’t likely to see any outfield time soon. The Cubs are watching Jeff Samardzija’s workload, are talking up Carlos Marmol, and are going to take the best available player in the Draft.
We connected with a number of Cubs’ prospects on Twitter last night, and the ones we didn’t were busy playing some exciting games.
The idea of moving Castro remains unpalatable … but we’re getting there.
Opposing teams’ bullpen catchers are having trouble seeing warm-up pitches as well as they’d like.
Does it count as a sacrifice if you still have a 30% chance of reaching base? Kerry Wood probably won’t be back soon, Chris Volstad can’t win, and Ian Stewart is struggling.
It was a rough first inning for Concepcion, but an interesting overall start.
It’s still a series win, so that’s good.
I’m not sure I can even bring myself to think about the possibility of a sweep…
Boom. Television’d. The Cubs won another insane one last night, Tony Campana wants to race Nyjer Morgan, and Mike Matheny thinks everything is tragic.
The big Cubs weren’t the only one winning in a walk-off yesterday.
Did that really just happen again?
How about a two for two, eh?
Isn’t it a bit early to be ripping on Dale Sveum’s lineup choices and bench usage?
The Cubs would supply the other necessary $150 million on their own, but with some help extended in raising the money.
Joe Mather has a nickname that I hadn’t heard before. Bryan LaHair’s at bat last night was awesome, Kerry Wood might soon throw off the mound, and the Cubs hope to keep Rodrigo Lopez.
Jonathan Mota pulls off a rare feat. And Brett Jackson is no longer interested in striking out.
