    Wrigley Field might be renamed...

    http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=3266721

    The chief executive officer of the Tribune Company said Wednesday he won't hesitate to sell the naming rights to Wrigley Field -- even if baseball purists don't like the idea.

    During an interview on CNBC, Sam Zell said despite Wrigley Field being known worldwide, he didn't get a discount because he wasn't going to use the naming rights that the field represents.

    Zell said he plans to sell the Cubs and Wrigley separately and in his own time frame. He also disclosed that Major League Baseball has approved "four or six" potential ownership groups and that any one of them would be fine.

    That sucks. There are very few stadiums left with iconic, throwback names... Wrigley, Fenway Park, Yankee Stadium, Shea Stadium. Scratch Shea and Wrigley off that list.

    I'm a Cubs fan. Believe me, no Cubs fan will ever call that stadium anything but Wrigley.
