I got your limerick right here.

Last century it wasn't thought dumb
To name Weeghman Park after a gum
Almost a hundred years later
A new kind of hater
Thinks poor Sam Zell is a bum


About Wrigley I'm wholly nonplussed
Oppose Zell? I don't see that I must
I don't stand athwart history
Only bad baseball gets t'me
Ashes to ashes, and gum to dust 

Worth noting: the anti-Zell limericks at the Beachwood Reporter are far superior to the ones the S-T has collected (they seem to be missing a line in their own doggerel); h/t Ryerson in comments. Also, revised the first one slightly to avoid word repetition.
