What’s the deal with these baseball teams. It’s like each time one gets a shiny new stadium the rest of them want their multi-million dollar piece of the pie.  Catch the first line of the below post….opt out of a 20 year deal!  How about we all stop poaching each others teams and focus on Florida.

From the Arizona Republic

The Cubs could opt out of their 20-year lease with Mesa for $4.2 million and leave in 2012. The Cubs would be required to notify Mesa before spring training 2010.

The Chicago White Sox opted out of a similar agreement this year and moved from Tucson to the new Camelback Ranch Glendale complex in northwest Phoenix.

With the opt out clause looming and a change in team ownership pending, Smith said it was anticipated that the Cubs would ask for improvements. He expects to have a list in hand shortly.
