| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The Marin Report is a fast-paced, insightful look at the day's top news from renowned reporter Carol Marin. Watch it each weekday at noon.




Here are the stories we're following today:


• A huge, tentative Wrigley Field deal has been struck.  But the rooftop owners weren't part of the negotiations and have threatened to sue.


• Sun-Times columnist Rick Telander says all the haggling has nothing to do with baseball. It has to do with the promise of a better team.


• Sun-Times columnist Laura Washington has another baseball concern: Where are the black players? Less than 10 percent of players on Major League rosters are African American.


Secretary of State John Kerry is headed to Chicago for a private visit with the family of Anne Smedinghoff, the 25-year-old foreign service officer who was killed in a bombing in Afghanistan.


• And finally, it's Tax Day. If you haven't filed, you have until midnight.
