So anytime we get back here we come back here -- by the way it's not just.
With a deep dish pizza and it's not just.
It waits to see it this is the year the Chicago Cubs do it.
Tonight minutes of the Chicago Cubs because it's a sore point but actually an optimistic point.
For the fellow who owns that find -- on rickets joins me.
Man in charge of the Chicago Cubs at some very good that you think everybody everybody.
So they didn't do this here.
But you're saying you know -- -- a year from now will be media around the time of the World Series.
Hope springs eternal rest so -- -- personal congratulations on your anniversary thank you quite are a very much the very much.
-- obviously we we didn't get it done on the field this year was at this -- season for everybody but I'm.
You know we're out there we're gonna we're gonna get some new leadership on the baseball side and now we've -- -- -- April -- with the leadership -- -- be everything via the USD grind.
Does is it Red Sox GM and ebitda heat as well over there implosion at the end of the season ticket boy that's a perfect guy.
Yeah I don't know there's a lot of good candidates out there we we're gonna talk to handful of -- I'm sure will come up with a the right fit for the team.
And I know us to write off product -- aren't.
Yeah what is it should ultimately it'd be the decision myself and my family and it's I think we'll find the right person and we'll get going.
You're no stranger mean you spent a lot of money you you were a long term investor I think you said that right it gets a little martyrdom.
But we disappointed I mean with the number of losses that you didn't have more -- coming right off the bat.
Obviously -- going to vote this season and last season which was our first season that we thought we had a the team that would perform better than it had turned out perform.
But -- you know I can't go back in time we look forward.
And we got a lot of good things to build on we're -- if you're pushing forward and we'll get.
It's a great franchise and you're investing in history and that's what everyone sounds very briefly -- debt because you're.
Obviously passion about it good -- -- put them I'm wondering about the environment but apart from days.
Is it so it's that.
United States to do the brakes on their a lot of CEOs are sounding beyond query.
I'm very very anxious I'm worried about.
The economy slipping into something dead maybe something -- have it.
Well I think in the big picture I think we're we're all kind of looking for what it takes to get that confidence back in the economy.
And ultimately we have we have low interest rates.
And we believe we have which we have a lot of cash on balance sheets those kind of things that's -- inordinate amount of cancer and retracement what do you think is somewhat is pretty.
Schooled in the courtroom where what we'll take that CEOs -- -- Spending that money.
-- I think it comes down to when that confidence in the economy comes back.
I mean I think in.
I think that you know it's just just a matter time it's -- kind of played through and keep optimistic like like this city is and then -- -- forward.
You know a lot of CEO types.
Business -- -- it.
Why would we invest and expands in an environment like this unless we were incentivized.
They want taxes -- regulations lowered both lowered.
Do you have any worse in this race -- which any desire.
Well I think that the I think the most important thing is if you're gonna send long term behavior in the long term incidents.
I think when when we look at -- giving short term incentives to corporations it doesn't really get -- higher doesn't get them to invest you have to think bigger so.
I think we'll get there I think the economy has come back.
So it's a good baseball I mean generally not all the time but it seems that -- -- it seems that have a very.
Their wallets and owner were willing to spend a lot to expand yankees -- no stranger.
-- that but there are others.
How crucial will be.
It in in this playoff season do you think.
More than it did seem with the deepest and may be more expensive -- to survive.
You know I I don't I think that's out the window at this point I think there what you find is.
Traditionally teams -- have a little bit more financial resources may be more consistent and getting to the playoffs.
Once you're there and if they don't -- and -- you know there's a and the and there's a good mix this year and it's not just about it I think clubs it's it's a very exciting play out.
That's at some level does it bug you with the cardinals and there right now -- -- That are ever relied on refrain body out of stated target join the -- -- that you know that that that we're not you know it's gonna be.
It's going to be difficult to -- to me that -- that that I don't root for or against anyway.
Very good very good -- very good seeing it on -- thank you very actually life and it will be here next -- with the the cubs and because the White Sox fans are telling don't know do you have around Chicago -- We shall see -- thank you very very much.
