    Down with Wrigley Field???

    Zambrano kinda let his tongue slip yesterday and mentioned that he would like to see wrigley go away and have the cubs get a new stadium like new yankee stadium...

    I know that saying that is kinda like saying lets tear down the Vatican in some people's eyes but what do all of you think?

    I mean Wrigley is old.... it isnt like the cubs have had incredible success there, so i understand that it could go and everything would probably be fine.

    I personally dont want it to go away... ive been there and it an awesome place. If they did replace it, it would have to be one hell of a ballpark the build and they would HAVE to have an Ivy wall still.

    anyway what do all of you think about the cubs moving out of wrigley???

    I am a Cardinals fan so take what I say for what it's worth to you. You guys havn't won a World Series in Wrigley Field's existence so I don't think a change is necessary.

    I can see them replacing the stadium minus the bleachers section. They need new skyboxes, clubhouses and ceilings that won't fall on fans heads.

    Being a Cubs fan I would be OK with this, but do NOT touch any part of the bleachers, scoreboard or ivy.

    Whether people like it or not Wrigley isn't going to last forever. I would personally love a new stadium but that probably won't happen. Maybe play at US Cellular for a year and do major renovations to it. Like get new restrooms because we know how much fun it is to pee in troughs.

    i mean i know he retracted his statement, but he still said it. The more i think about this, the more i think it needs to go. it is soooo old and they could build a kick *** stadium.... we will see

    I am not a Cubs fan, but it would be a shame to see it go. I'm sure the new ball park would have some lame corporate name too.

    Verizon Park at Wrigley, etc, etc, etc.

    I just hope they build it in the exact same spot, same specs, everything. Just with more of the modern amenities, normal walking clearance, etc.

    I can certainly see why Cubs players get jealous of others - Wrigley has a tiny, cramped clubhouse, and no amenities like workout areas and lounges like all the new stadiums have.
    TV hides a lot of things about Wrigley...

    I would love to watch the politics and under the table deals that would happen if this ever happen, it would be a complete zoo!

    If the city got awarded the 2016 olympics, I wonder if it would happen then.

    even a renovation would be good.... like i said though. that Ivy wall needs to stay and id probably like to see the scoreboard stay non-electronic...

    Yep, its probably not possible but I would like them to knock down everything but the outfield wall, bleachers and scoreboard. Everything else needs to be rebuilt.
