    I wouldn't say that at all. If anything it's less bland than Citi Field; at least the Marlins place is unique.

    Actually I like it. The outfield wall has far fewer nooks and crannies than a lot of other parks. I like quirky ballparks that are made to fit unique pieces of land --- I hate purpose-made quirks, especially weird angles on the outfield walls.

    And those sliding glass walls behind the left and left-center field stands are a very nice touch.

    Besides the hideous coloring of the interior, which I'm sure will be better in real life than the renderings (see renderings of the green wall at Nationals Park compared to the real thing), I like the design a lot. It will fit in nicely with modern buildings down here, and it's the right level of intimacy for a small-market team. Once the details are added, I think people are going to like this place. It's a departure from previous parks, and it will grow on people who are tired of seeing red brick everywhere

    They had to put seats in anyway, and ugly colors cost just as much as nice colors

    Does anyone know what these letters are for and what they're supposed to say? I also found a pretty cool picture, which is the last one.

    That reeks of Cowboys stadium from that angle.



    However, I think it will be a fine ballpark for Miami.

    Assuming there are a few other letters around there (especially "I's"), you can unscramble them and spell out "MIAMI ORANGE BOWL." An odd way of doing it, but either way an interesting homage to the site that the new stadium will occupy.

    I wonder if those are the original Orange Bowl letters from the sign on the old stadium.



    Where are those pictures from?

    I read that those letters are the letters from the OB sign. i forget where I read it but if i find the article I'll post the link.

    I got them from stadiumpage.com

    those letters really say - "we got you to pay for this, suckers!"

    I think it looks great. Glad to see a few stadiums that aren't following the traditional brick designs. Especially in areas where it isn't really traditional to that area.

    The first roof track beam was lifted into place today on the north side. It gives you a nice cross-section view of the stands behind the plate now too.

    Hey, I too really like Uggla. He is not always the best fielder, but he is adequte, and he sure can hit.
    So why are the Rangers still called the Texas Ranger instead of the Dallas Rangers. There already is a Houston Team there, that's probably more popullar in the state of Texas.

    How are the "Florida Marlins" any worse than the "Minnesota Twins" or "Arizona Diamondbacks" or "Colorado Rockies"? There was no guarantee that another team would ever show up in Tampa. And if so, our name is no worse than the "California Angels", who had no hope of converting the entire state, much less their own market. The Texas Rangers are like the Buffalo Bills, in that the entire name is necessary to make it make sense.

    There's always the Los Angeles Lakers, which made more sense in Minneapolis. LOL
