    When the ballpark was reviled in the late 90s, it coincided with the Bears needing a new stadium. The best thing the city could've done is remodel the Cell for football and built a new park for the Sox at Clark and 18th.

    Is that an invasion by sea happening outside the 3b line?

    That sounds like a colossal undertaking. The place isn't in any way shaped for football. Starting from scratch on the land would be a lot easier.

    No, compared to what they DID with Soldier Field, it would be a lot easier.

    You just knock down the Cell grandstand past the 1B line and the whole RF area. The north sideline, and both endzones could use the Cell's existing structures. So now you just need a grandstand for the south sideline.

    Now you can do whatever. You can extend the Cell's bowl design to wrap the whole field, or you can do an asymmetric design where the south sideline would have a single bowl design with the requisite 10 stories of suites behind it. Basically the same concept as this

    I don't get why it's any city needs to foot the bill over any multi-million dollar company. I wish one city would stand up and state no.. I know off topic, but how much did this city waste on two stadiums. We can't fund the city pensions.. but just we can fund a 650M stadium?? Again, I know off topic.

    Hops off soapbox.

    Didn't St Louis pretty much just do that and lost the Rams to LA?

    Nah, they had a plan ready to go. Kroenke just wanted to GTFO out of there.

    I'm not sure, in regards to that. But, also the Rams owner was 100% correct in stating St Louis isn't a football city. They are baseball and hockey. If you look over the data every city loses money on building a new stadium. Don't know how true this is, but when I was in Montreal 2 years ago.. The locals were telling us they were still paying off Olympic stadium, which was built in 1970s.

    Well, take the Vikings stadium for example. It took years to get done as the government didn't want to foot the bill. But when it came down to it, those people knew they'd never win another election if they forced the team out of town.

    Stadiums lose money but they also bring indirect value to the cities. When the Colts left Baltimore they knew it was paramount to something done before the Orioles did in order to maintain their status as a "Major League City". Their logic was good luck getting any new business to come here without a real team.

    I do not know if it is because that guy flew the drone into the scoreboard but there is a sizeable green dot right in the middle.

    I was on Halsted, listening to the game on the radio. I heard the crowd erupt and then the fireworks go off before the radio announced the play. Probably the loudest crowd noise I've ever heard.

    I was in the left field bleachers with my old man. We walked out of the ramp by gate 2 and were celebrating and some dude cold cocked me then ran off. It was my dad's birthday; a few years ago I bought him the official scorecard of that game and had it framed.

    My and a friend almost got torn to pieces by some roided-up drunk-as-fuck SOX fan after that extra-inning game when Sham-ME* hit a homer in the 9th to tie it. SOX won it on a single by Ray-Ray with the Milkman scoring from second.

    He came barrelling out of the ramps and seemed to be willing to shove or swing at anything.

    You would have to hit a moon shot down the right field line to get a HR there. I wonder what the height is compared to AT&T Park.

    If it's just above the bricks in that section I don't think it's that high.

    901 arguing with a bunch of morons on I think Fenway's FB. These people think it's "50/50" the next owner of the Sox moves the team. 901 setting them straight, or trying to at least.

    Fens (:fruit:) always struck me as an old fuddy duddy to where, if he did have a FB page, would be nothing more than citing anniversaries of things like Yaz's first double and linking things like DNABoston or similar. Definitely nothing a virile man like 901 should busy himself with.
