There's No Whining in Baseball

Ongoing battle ends with Cubs getting 17%

The battle is over.

Concerned that the Cubs might follow through on the threat to put up blinds to block his mid-block view, rooftop owner Anthony Racky agreed Thursday to share 17 percent of his 2008 profits with the team.
