Tom Ricketts Thinks Big Market...Cubs Fans Think Small Town

Of all the things that came about from Lou Piniella retirement speech and the following Jim Hendry re-hiring press conference, the one thing that reeks most of all is most Cubs' fans reacting. I understand that Cubs' fans are upset that Jim Hendry has been given the public vote of confidence from Wrigley's #1 fan and owner Tom Ricketts. I understand that Cubs' fans are unhappy with the fact that the 2010 season has gone not even close to plan.

However I do not understand how Cubs' fans can continue to think "small market" when the organization itself said yesterday "big market". In other words, how can a big market franchise make a small market hire with Ryne Sandberg as the next manager of the Chicago Cubs?
