Zell won't hesitate to sell Wrigley Field naming rights

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

I'm a Cardinals fan - and even I think a possible name change to Wrigley Field is crazy.

He'd sell his heart, if he had one.

What is the area around Wrigley Field going to be called Bud Weiser Ville or Bank Of America Ville not Wrigley Ville. Think about it. This is the saddest day for Chicago History. If they name it anything else it should be Harry Caray Field. Will his statue be able to stay or will the new owner want his statue in front of the place. The worst thing would be Trump Field.

Isn't it nice, though, that Chicago fans now have a bigger-than-life Cubs owner to hate? Why should the Yankees and Orioles fans have all the fun?

I heard about this on the radio a few days ago and I had to rant and throw my hands up in the air. WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH THAT GUY??!!!!

If the place wasn't "cursed" enough by Billy Sianus' goat, it will be forever haunted by the voices of outraged fans, Harry Caray, Jack Brickhouse, hell anyone who grew up in the warm embrace of the friendly confines.

I remember when there was talk here in Bawston about tearing down Fenway and building something new and shiny in the suburbs - you could hear them screamin all the way to Springfield (out in western MA). To my mind, Fenway and Wrigley are like sacred hallowed ground of baseball. How can you just nullify a city's cultural icon with the swipe of a pen?

Renaming Wrigley is like tampering with my childhood memories and I don't like it one bit.
