Then add the cramped conditions, the cramped location, etc. I wonder if it's possible all those things affect morale in the long term.
I mean, they go to all those great new parks and see what they're like, then they go back to Wrigley.
It's bad enough for Cubs players, given the antiquated workout and practice facilities, people in the bullpen staring right at the sun, a near-total lack of amenities, the cramped conditions, so on and so forth -- those have even had a measure of improvement
over the last decade or so, and they're still shit.
players come into Wrigley Field, they must feel like they just went back to the minors. The visitors' clubhouse in Wrigley is one step up from a closet, and for fuck's sake, the batting cage is underneath the right field bleachers.
If fucking Yankee Stadium
can be blown up and replaced, the Cubs can get the hell out of Wrigley.
