STAYING HOME: In Chicago, Gordon Wittenmyer reports the Cubs will play "all their home games at Wrigley Field while the anticipated work is completed." Cubs VP/Communications & Community Affairs Julian Green said that a plan that called for home games in April and May '14 and '15 to be moved to Miller Park in Milwaukee "was just one of 'a number of different options' being considered and is now 'off the table.'" The Miller Park plan "was considered seriously enough that the Brewers were consulted and at one point late last season Cubs business executives apprised the baseball-operations side about the possibility." While the plan never reached the point of seeking MLB approval, "it at least provides a glimpse into the team’s thinking on a timeline for its Wrigley Field projects, as well as expectations for a timeline on public-funding efforts" (CHICAGO SUN-TIMES, 1/18).
