Did they have a home sweep and a road sweep at all last season?

To me... This year they are exceeding expectations..

This year isn't about winning, it's about development, and yes they are exceeding expectations - Castro and Rizzo (both possible all stars at 24) Arietta and mostly young bullpen, and Bryant (27 homers so far this year) Alcantara, Wada and Hendricks in AAA... Depending on how good rest of division is they may be a playoff team next year already...

Are you able to move around the park during the game ala citi field and marlins stadium, or are most seats taken/tight security preventing you from moving section to section, level to level?

Baez who acc. to some is the teams' THIRD best hitting prospect has 3 homes and 5 RBIs in first 3 games! AAA player/coach ManRam hit a homer today too...

Which would explain why he's their third best hitting prospect. Bryant and Soler are better at striking out less... To be fair - Baez is learning a new position, and is also, apparently, learning how to take pitches, and is hitting for average... But yes, a lot of strikeouts...

Soler... Tom... I don't mean to sound dirty, but who doesn't like happy endings....

Hopefully this season will have one.

Phil Rogers wrote an article boasting of hitting in near future... http://mlb.mlb.com/news/article/chc/phil-rogers-cubs-adding-prospect-jorge-soler-to-display-case?ymd=20140826&content_id=91557982&vkey=news_chc
Has some flaws though... the main reasons for Bryant staying in AAA until next May were wrong as I-Cubs aren't making playoffs and real reasons are 40 man/service time/Boras being his agent/not ready with fielding yet. Either way his point that having 6/7 insanely good under age 25 hitters with $ to blow, if needed, makes for some really exciting ball coming soon...
