Your latest visual update from the work ongoing at Wrigley Field. Today, among other things, the Cubs moved the statues of Ernie Banks and Harry Caray to accommodate upcoming work. Caray’s statue will eventually return to the corner of Waveland and Sheffield, while Banks’ statue will eventually wind up in the plaza.
A few quick shots of the statues in transit:

Jon Greenberg writes about the sense of urgency in the Cubs’ 26-week window to get things done before the 2015 season kicks off. It sounds like that process will include a great deal of hand-holding with the City to make sure everything the Cubs do is in compliance (with whatever), and there are no delays.
