No Baseball, But Cubs Begin Sportsbook Project

Opening Day might be canceled, but Wrigley Field is still busy. The Cubs’ home is undergoing construction in prep of the new sportsbook.

Just a day removed from the announcement that MLB games have been canceled, the Chicago Cubs began something that isn’t Spring Training. On Wednesday, construction of the brand new sportsbook began outside of Wrigley Field.

Sadly, this construction is the only action Wrigley Field will be seeing in the near future. Sure, that can always change with a deal being worked out. However, as things stand, the owners don’t look concerned about baseball, but rather about ways to make additional money. Drew Silva (@drewsilv on Twitter) posted an incredible video as a quote tweet to Paul Sullivan’s tweet. It will definitely trigger people, especially after the owners became public enemy No. 1. Below is Tom Ricketts’ father, Joe Ricketts, talking about a baseball team as a business.

Ah yes, it’s all about the money. Hell, the owners made that very apparent with their offers to the MLBPA in the last 14 days. Who knows when we’ll have baseball, but you might be able to bet at Wrigley’s new sportsbook before the new Opening Day.
