cubs curious about effects of new bullpens under bleachers


because of pregame rain at wrigley field, cubs players didn't get a chance monday to become accustomed to the new field conditions, which include less foul territory down the lines where the bullpens used to be. the lack of bullpens on the field, ben zobrist pointed out, means no pitching mounds to contend with."that's easier," zobrist said. "there's less over there to worry about. in the outfield, you've got to be even more careful when you're getting back to that part."the new bullpen doors are made of green plexiglas so that fans looking at them from the outside will see a green under armour ad, while the players inside can see the action, albeit with a tint.so which is easier to bang into, bricks or glass?"the ivy usually (cushions), from what travis wood said," zobrist said, referring

plenty new at wrigley field for 2017 in addition to championship banner


the biggest addition to wrigley field this year is the championship flag that will be hoisted in center field on opening night.that's the only enhancement that really matters to most cubs fans, though they'll also get a new gate on the west side of the park, a starbucks, a plaza where they can eat or drink if they'd rather watch the games on flat screens than from the seats they paid for, and a new bullpen that they won't be able to see.a relatively mild winter has helped keep phase 3 of the wrigley renovation moving along, but a premium club in the section behind home plate is not scheduled to open until 2018.here's the latest on what to expect at wrigley in 2017, besides gridlock on game days due to construction of a new hotel on clark street and a new entertainment complex on addison st
