Are The Chicago Cubs For Sale?

Are the Chicago Cubs For Sale?The Tribune Company owns the Chicago Cubs and has acknowledged the speculation that has swirled for months about the Cubs potentially being for sale. Gary Weitman, a Tribune spokesman was quoted recently (March 18, 2006) in a Chicago Tribune report saying:

“The Cubs are not for sale.”

However, I have found some contradictory opinions in these posts on and 1060west.

I can’t see it happening. The Cubs are a great TV property for WGN and Comcast SportsNet. Broadcasting is actually more important to Tribune’s bottom line than its newspaper business.
