Faced with losing millions in revenue due to a shortfall of subscribers because of their failure to sign cable giant Comcast, the Marquee Sports Network recruited several local high school TV stations to broadcast Cubs games and related programming.
With holes to fill in the bullpen and starting rotation, as well as other key positions like back-up catcher and utility infielder, the Cubs will introduce their 2018 15-man roster at this weekend’s annual Cubs Convention.
"We are beyond excited to announce this move," said an excited Crane Kenney, the Cubs president of business operations. "This now brings us up to 5,000 households, 2,500 gas pumps, 1,500 Chuck E. Cheese urinals, and 15 high school TV stations."
In an effort to speed up the game, MLB officials have shaken things up by implementing a new rule where each pitcher has to throw for at least nine full innings.
The much-anticipated and sure-to-be-beloved Marquee Sports (really, Cubs, just Cubs) Network is up and running for the 2020 season.
