    What is really sad is that the field that was built in Frisco for the Double-A affiliate is a FAR nicer facility from the standpoint of aesthetics...

    No kidding, we drove by it about a week ago and my wife was aghast at how ugly the damn thing looks from the outside and frankly, I had a hard time arguing with her. I will reserve judgment on the park itself until I see my first game there but I know I will miss the Ballpark and how much of a cathedral of baseball feeling it had as you walked up to it, heat or not.

    I always felt that MMP could look really nice from some angles, and from others it looks like a barn at the county fair. Convertible stadiums are just like that, I guess.

    Looks of MMP/Enron/Juicebox/whatever never really bothered me other than it was a replacement for a perfectly fine stadium that lost an awesome scoreboard in order to appease a pissant Oilers owner who left town anyhow.

    The Rangers new place...does it come with barf bags?

    Mb227, unfortunately I have to agree with you. The new ballpark does not look like the artist's rendering. The old ballpark was classic - I rated it second in the majors, right behind Camden Yards. It's a shame they couldn't retrofit a sliding roof onto The Ballpark. The new park does, however, match its neighbor, the Boss Hog Bowl - they're both ugly on the outside.

    I'll hold my final judgment until I've gone to a game in the new ballpark, but so far I'm disappointed in the exterior. And, yes, I did vote "Yes" when it was on the ballot. Matter of fact, I voted "Yes" for the Cowboys stadium - I regret that vote now.

    Me and the Astros are on the outs right now over the cheating thing. It will pass in time, but right now I don't feel the need to watch them.

    The flag squatter here is Mookie Betts, who once said he would always stand for the flag and anthem. He also just signed a $365M extension with the LAD

    I guess the Astros aren't on the Rangers schedule or are we not playing in Houston anymore?
