Ricketts Deal To Be Done Soon

David Kaplan on 07.03.09

According to a good baseball source I spoke with a few hours ago, the Cubs sale is far more imminent than it was once believed. Tom Ricketts and the Tribune Company are working towards the deal that would give Ricketts possession of the Cubs and it should be done in the next two weeks, barring any unforseen circumstance.

Since Major League Baseball then has to approve the deal before Ricketts is officially the Cubs new owner, the entire process should be finalized before the end of August.
