Bob Nightengale has an interesting article in the USA Today. http://www.usatoday.com/sports/baseball/nl/cubs/2006-08-20-cubs-baker-focus_x.htm
The article points out the higher expectations for the Cubs since 2003 as well as problems a few players have had with racism at Wrigley Field.
Ryan Dempster states that "sometimes it's a whole lot easier to play on the road."
This situation reminds me of a time in the late '70s and early '80s when Green Bay Packer fans were accused of hampering the home team's play with the constant booing. They tried to turn everything positive and make it more like a college game atmosphere.
What do you think?
