Is it me or does the outfield at Wrigley seem really dark?

Great win………Lynn and Lackey are up next.

Just read an article about the lack of bathrooms and people using corners and cups to pee in.What a joke.Why even open up your season there,just stay at your spring site until your stadium is ready,even if its for health reasons.Bryant is lucky, his stadium has bathrooms.Chicago ran better when Capone was this “mayor”:)Imagine the smell from that place.The people across the street on the roof top bleachers are treated better and pay alot less.Were tickets full price?Why not do a promotion “Bring Your Own Colonostrophy Bag Night”!!
