Will Non-Baseball Events Send Free Agents Away?

Could all the non-baseball events that have been taking place at Wrigley play into the decision making of future free agents that the Cubs are looking to sign?

Will they overhear from current or former Cubs about how bad the playing surface is when they return from road trips due to concerts, yoga sessions, soccer games, movie showings and whatever else the Cubs front office can pack into the time the Cubs are on a road trip?

Will agents steer their clients away from the friendly confines out of fear of an injury on a sub par field to another team where the long term career could be safer?

The Cubs front office needs to get back to baseball as their prime business, and stop all the extracurricular activities on the field. We were embarrassed as fans with the national coverage of such a horrible playing surface, and I am sure that the players and coaches felt the same if not worse than we did. The front office should be showing the Cub players and the fan base the respect that is deserved by making baseball the priority not these other events.
