I like it better when politics and baseball don’t mix, but the “entertainment” arm of Donald Trump’s campaign was probably always going to suck in as many areas as possible:
I hear the Rickets family, who own the Chicago Cubs, are secretly spending $'s against me. They better be careful, they have a lot to hide!

Trump could have made that point about the politically-active Ricketts Family (one of the siblings who own the Cubs is Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts) without mentioning the Cubs. But mentioning the Cubs means that the baseball sphere would talk about it.
And then we did. And I hate myself for it.
As for what secrets the Ricketts have to hide, I can think only of … the secret sauce that is behind the Cubs’ breakout performance in 2015!
… and now I hate myself again. Let’s just go back to watching incredible baseball plays!
