Chicago Cubs owner Todd Ricketts is advising the President on MLB’s return as part of the country’s economic recovery. Is that good or bad for the Cubs?

Todd Ricketts is a busy guy outside his co-ownership of the Chicago Cubs with the other three Ricketts kids. Ricketts serves as the Republican National Committee Finance Chairman and has recently joined the half-billion dollar club of advisors to President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump.

Recently Trump has been meeting with the leaders of professional sports to assess their plans and gain insight into their thoughts on returning to action in the near future. Ricketts has been a part of all of those discussions as a close advisor to Trump.

In my opinion, Trump can hire whoever he wants to advise him on whatever he wants. For all I care, he can bring on all the Ricketts kids to advise him on how to subscribe to the Chicago Cubs Marquee Sports Network if he wants to. If your whole purpose in life is seeing the Chicago Cubs play baseball soon, isn’t it good if one of our Cubs co-owners is a close advisor to the most powerful person on the planet at this moment in history?

As a loyal Cub fan, I say heck (edited for family reading) yeah!
