Wednesday, I posted here about the lack of action in the Chicago City Council on the Cubs' request for more night games.
The Cubs' desires for changes in the current restrictions on Wrigley Field, of course, go farther than just a few additional after-dark affairs, and they have offered to pay for a $300 million restoration of the nearly 100-year-old ballpark in exchange for having those restrictions lifted.
Today, we learn that Mayor Rahm Emanuel won't separate the night-game issue from the rest of the requests, and says the Cubs should "seize" a deal:
"We’re not gonna break off a piece as it relates to that ordinance, which is on night games. It’s all one piece. We’re gonna do this comprehensively," the mayor said.
