Renovations in store for 100th anniversary of Wrigley

Jan 17, 2010, 9:44 AM EST

“triangle building,” a large open-air courtyard, the possible addition of a restaurant, widened concourses and expanded
restrooms, some of which will be completed for this season. It doesn’t sound like the troughs are going anywhere.

The only parts of the park that will not be reconfigured, according to the report, are the
bleachers, which already have been altered by more seats and a
restaurant.

One interesting note from the piece is that during a Cubs Convention
panel discussion about the business of baseball, team president Crane
Kenney took an informal show-of-hands vote on whether to keep flying
the “L” flag after a home loss. Most were opposed to changing one of
baseball’s quirkiest traditions.

    Holy Cow! They should just keep flying a huge “L” flag above the whole place until management decides to actually TRY to build a winner instead of signing players who will never live up to their contracts but makes fans THINK they are trying to win.

    Hell, they should just paint the goddamned “L” on the wall of the stadium when they finish renovating the place. Why go on paying someone to go out there every day and raise and lower a flag?
    .
    Maybe this time they’ll wise up and put a Giordano’s Pizza franchise in the stadium somewhere. If Steve Bartman had just knocked off even a personal sized stuffed sausage, pepperoni and meatball special with extra onions, mushrooms and garlic, he would have been too torpid to stand up.

    Without the L flag how would the Cubs fans know when to celebrate? Besides, it’s not like it’s a full time job, you only have to lower it a couple of times a homestand.
