Cubs Sign Crane Kenney To Five-Year Extension

CHICAGO (CBS) -- Cubs president of business operations Crane Kenney was a guest on 670 The Score's "Inside The Clubhouse" with Bruce Levine and Wayne Randazzo and announced that he has received a five-year contract extension through 2019.

Crane told Bruce and Wayne he doesn't worry about his critics because he has the backing of Cubs' owner Tom Ricketts.

"Thank God it is not a popularity contest with the Ricketts," said Kenney. "I know where I stand there. Tom just extended my contract through 2019. We're locked in to this thing for the long-term to get it done."

Kenney also addressed the apparent miscommunication between the Cubs and Mayor Emanuel over changes made to the Wrigley Field renovation plan.

"We let the City know we were moving the bullpens and we did have drawings that showed the doorways getting larger but our communication wasn't perfect and that is on us," Kenney said. "If the City is unaware of something that falls on us to make sure that they are aware of it so they wanted to take a second look at the question of enlarging the bullpen doors."
