What do the Cubs mean to WGN America?

This was at the end of a long thread from Al's story from a few days ago. I move it to a fanpost for possible discussion. 2013 Cable Network Ratings This is what original programming and...

More Cactus League History; The Giants (and the Angels) at Casa Grande


Hard to believe the Angels trained here but played games in Palm Springs. Makes the walk from Fitch Park to HoHoKam fairly easy....

Andy Masur dropped from the Padres radio crew


Andy developed into a terrific pbp guy. Idiots run the Padres, but I've known that for years.


WGN America Ratings

I posted in an earlier discussion regarding WGN America that I would go on a hunt to find the ratings of the superstation. I have come up with this, from which offers some insight. It's...

$$$ for TV Baseball a slam dunk? Not in Houston


Sometimes the big money TV deal isn't always what it seems.

It's the beginning of the end of Cubs Baseball on WGN America


We've been pretty lucky (I guess) for the last 30+ years. But, I'm going to bet 2013 will be the last season for those of outside of Chicago to see at least 50 games on basic cable.

Outsider's View Of Wrigleyville


I might add, Luke Gregerson is a big Blackhawks fan.

From the CBC: Bettman says no timetable for sale


More information, possibly. There may be interested groups.

Jed Hoyer looks back at his record....


You'd think the Cubs were the Yankees, from the columnist's POV.

I'm not sure this isn't something that seems obvious, but one might wonder about all the day games/different starting times playing a slight factor in consistent performance.

1.4 Billion for Padres TV Rights???


70 Million per year for 20 years? Is this possible??

Which Baseball Team Should I Root For?


I have yet to follow this flowchart to the Cubs, but if you can follow how to get to the White Sox, you'll get a good laugh.

Free Ride is Over


A few of us just may have visited these sites.......


Investors sniffing around Chavez Ravine?

Westwood One’s principal investor Alec Gores wants to play baseball – with the Dodgers.

OT: Dodger Stadium Construction


Scan down this web site. I've never seen these images of Chavez Ravine before Dodger Stadium, and subsequent construction. Apparently, the images are from the USC Archives.

Vikings To Los Angeles?


Bears/Chargers fan here... I read but have never posted. When the Metrodome fell apart, this was my first thought. SB Nation thinks so too, so I moved their post here....

OT: Here's ownership that deserves criticism


There's been a lot of moaning and complaining about the still-youthful stewardship of the Cubs by the Ricketts family. None of knows now what exactly is going to happen. We can speculate (usually negatively) but (to use a cliche') time will tell. We have been able to determine Dodgers ownership is corrupt. Here's how they dumped long time broadcaster Ross Porter....

Rare Color Footage of 1943 NFL Championship game at Wrigley Field. This comes 2 games in -- 2 Bears...


Rare Color Footage of 1943 NFL Championship game at Wrigley Field. This comes 2 games in -- 2 Bears NFL Championship losses to the Redskins -- The '43 Monsters of the Midway do win. Even though this is a Redskins video, more Bears footage is featured later on -- a charity game, as the Bears wear orange.

It's a Cubs uniform! No, wait, does that say...what I think it says?


And we do remember the 90s road unis where the "Cubs" written script looked like "Cuba..."

The Padres STILL want to rub salt in a wound...


I really don't use foul language on these pages, but I am thinking of a certain action that the Padres should perform on themselves....
