    Better luck to the Indians this year, Ted! Unless, of course, they end up in the Series against the Giants. ;)

    Ted - Just last week my wife showed me a picture of Petco Park down in San Diego. It showed the field covered by about 5" of water.
    Yeah, they got dumped on by the last pineapple express rain that hit California, big time.
    Nice shots of the park you have there.

    It's interesting how similar most of the newer MLB stadiums are. Change some of the signage and this could be Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, Camden Yards in Baltimore, etc. The Camden Yards template clearly works.

    True. But I sure don't miss the "multi-stadiums" they built back in the '70s to accommodate both baseball and football. They were good for neither.

    In Cleveland, we wouldn't want the Browns' curse to rub off on our wonderful Tribe!

    Exactly. And most are gone already. In Philadelphia, I was at Veteran's Stadium in its first year of life, its last year and many times in between. It got the job done but one was always a bit too far from the action for baseball, football and concerts.

    Hell, there was a time back in the ’80s when they handed out medals at Candlestick if you stayed through an extra inning night game (the Croix de Candlestick). No kidding! I've got two.

    When they tore it down two years ago I didn't shed a tear.

    Some of us loved the stick and the new park, while a terrific venue, doesn't have the character or the 40 mph crosswinds that we all loved.
