More (But Different) Ballpark Talk

Before someone says it, I agree--I can't wait for the first Spring Training game, so that for the next seven months or so, we can talk mostly about what's happening on the field instead of speculation and rumors.  These slow February days are driving me crazy.  

Going back to the ballpark situation, WSCR "The Score" just reported on one of their news breaks that talks have already been "broached" (whatever that means) about the Cubs playing at least one season in U.S. Cellular Field while Wrigley Field gets a complete facelift, save the bleachers, scoreboard, and of course, the new playing field. Basically, the same thing the Bears did a few years ago, and the same thing the Yankees did in the early '70s when they played two seasons in Shea Stadium.  No official sources were listed, but it was reported that this may happen as soon as the 2010 season.  A lot of us have predicted, at one point or another, that this is exactly what would happen when the time came to update Wrigley.  As someone who loves Wrigley Field and hates The Cell, I have to say that I think this would be a great thing.  It would ensure the Cubs stay in Wrigleyville long-term.  Thoughts?  48 hours until the first S.T. game!!
