Only 18 Nights at Wrigley: The Chicago Cubs will apparently only be able to have 18 night games this season at Wrigley, despite the team's hopes to play at least 22 under the lights. The team was unable to reach an agreement with the city, which wanted an increase from the $1 million donation promised by the Cubs to fund a neighborhood improvement project. Both parties wish to resolve the dispute without mediation or court, which are the remedies under the current agreement.

UPDATE: Chicago's mayor has responded that the Cubs have not honored their promises to the Wrigleyville neighborhood and must do so before any increase in the number of night games is granted.
