Bud Selig has several pressing issues on Major League Baseball’s agenda, but the commissioner isn’t worried about the drama surrounding the Cubs and their attempts to renovate Wrigley Field.
During Tuesday’s meeting with the Baseball Writers Association of America in Manhattan, Selig sounded as if the clashes between the Ricketts family, the rooftop lobby, City Hall and the 44th Ward are a blip on his radar.
“I’m very optimistic,” Selig said. “I know they’re optimistic and I’m optimistic. As you know, Chicago politics don’t always move smoothly. But I’m very optimistic. It’s not something I would say is a concern of mine now because it’s far enough down the line.”
