Trib Article: Cubs warm to idea of new park

It seems like the two games played at Miller Park have started up the blasphemous talk of replacing Wrigley Field among the journalists and even players.  Among some of the quotes from the article...

There's no doubt the Cubs enjoyed their two-day stay in the Brewers' home clubhouse at Miller Park, and not just because they allowed only one hit in two victories over Houston.

After his no-hitter Sunday, Carlos Zambrano went as far as to say: "This is a beautiful ballpark. Gosh, I wish we could have a new ballpark."

Jason Marquis loves Wrigley, too, but wouldn't mind a replica built on the current site.

...

"If I had a personal choice, I think they should knock Wrigley down and build a replica in the exact same spot to give it that same feel. The same colored seats, same ivy, same wall, and throw up a Jumbotron, but have it look like a replica of the scoreboard that's up there now, try to give it the same feel, in the same spot. I wouldn't be opposed to that."
