Zell Sets Purchase Deadline: August 1st

NBC 5 10:00 pm news , in a report out of Crain's, stated that Zell, in a meeting this weekend, stated that he's setting a deadline and wants the Cubs sold by August 1st. There is also a report that Zell will meet with Warren Buffet, Buffet financed Mars Company to buy Wrigley Gum, if Buffet buys the Cubs, he would probably want Wrigley field also, and he would keep the name as is.

Let's see if Selig tries to pressure Zell to sell it to an insider and , not the highest bidder . Mark my words , if doesn't go to the highest bidder Zell will take this to the Supreme Court .

Having Reinsdorf and Cuban in the same town would be gold, I tell ya!!!!

The animosity between the Cubs and Sox would reach a whole new level

Good Call Bockstock. While Reinsdorf could potentially be the biggest hurdle for Cuban, he could also make for some great comments on Cuban's blog. Imagine Ozzie's bleepin' comments if even more publicity comes to the Cubs with Cuban.

Zell might be able to get around the whole "MLB vote" ****. Zell will want the highest offer and will fight tooth and nail to get it

And that is exactly the reason Reinsdorf will fight Cuban's purchase tooth and nail . Just the idea that the Sox owner has any say in who buys the Cubs makes my blood boil !!!!

Does anyone know if the MLB owners get a vote of yes or no for the new potential Cubs owner?
