There are disgruntled fans and then there are complete and total whacked out sickos. The sadsack Cubs have plenty of the former and now, apparently, at least one of the latter. Earlier today, the Cubs informed the media that a package containing the head of a goat was delivered to Wrigley Field and addressed to Cubs owner Tom Rickets. Here is the story via the Chicago Tribune: A goat’s head was delivered to Wrigley Field this afternoon, addressed to Cubs owner Tom Ricketts, a team spokesman said. A package with a goat’s head was dropped off at Wrigley, 1060 W. Addison St., addressed to Ricketts, Cubs team spokesman Julian Green said. The package was dropped off at Gate K at the field, Green said. The delivery was reported to police, he said. As the article later alludes to, the Cubs are engaged in contentious negotiations to modernize Wrigley, providing a possible motive for why some psychopath thought it would be a good idea to send Ricketts such a morbid parcel. Although for all we know this deranged person could be upset with the current roster, Ricketts' political dealings or the price of hot dogs at the park or maybe that NBC is going to cancel Smash, which has nothing to do with anything but it sounds like the kind of absurd reason a crazy person would have for doing something like this. Whatever the case, let's hope the police will be able to track down this clearly unbalanced individual because who knows what else they might be capable of if they feel like whatever message they were trying to send isn't sufficiently heeded. The last thing MLB needs is copycats to emerge with other franchises. Just to be safe, Jeffrey Loria might want to be careful about opening any oddly shaped yet point packages that show up on his front step. [follow]
