The Herald reports Cambridge is developing its own benefits package to try to keep Vertex in Cambridge, rather than letting it flee to South Boston - such as municipal "financing incentives."

Hmm, Cheung has youth on his side, but Menino has a few pounds on him, not to mention a lot more bare-knuckles experience.
