The [Monday] Papers

"The Cubs aren't even fun to hate-watch anymore," I write in The Cub Factor.

I have to say I've never been less interested in an Opening Day in my lifetime.

Thank you, Theo Epstein, for sucking the joy out of even hating being a Cubs fan.

And even more so, a giant Fuck You to the Ricketts family. You've done the impossible: You've made the previous owners look magnanimous.

"The spacious new Cubs Park in Mesa was a big hit this spring, with the Chicago Cubs setting new attendance records for a Cactus League season and for per-game average," the Arizona Republic reports.

Good. Maybe now give the taxpayers their $99 million back.

*

Walgreens Whiff
"A powerful member of the Indiana Board of Pharmacy was quietly involved in discussions with state pharmacy regulators about a $100 million project that benefited his employer - Walgreens pharmacies," the Indianapolis Star reports.

"And now a government watchdog group and a labor federation say those actions not only violated state ethics laws, but have allowed Walgreen Co. to dramatically remodel dozens of stores across Indiana, compromising patient privacy and increasing the chance of errors in filling prescriptions.

"One of the groups persuaded the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to look into the matter. It recently launched an investigation into the patient privacy allegations at Walgreen."
