St. Louis Native Rocco Landesman to Buy Cubs? Unthinkable!

Posted By on Thu, Jul 24, 2008 at 4:20 PM

Rocco Landesman, Clayton High School Class of '65, has submitted a bid for the Chicago Cubs.


The big-time Broadway producer is one of the money men behind Mel Brooks' The Producers. Is this a Bialystockian attempt to gain even more money by investing in a guaranteed loser? Many Cardinals fans already equate the Cubs with the Third Reich (great success in the early going, followed by years of diminishing results, followed by a monstrous national shame and reluctance to acknowledge the past), so it's not a stretch.

"Springtime for Piniella," indeed.
