    You would think at the least that after seeing in what a lousy condition it was in after they removed it from Shea that they would possibly tarp it up over the long winter.

    Dont get me wrong, I understand the point of this board is to talk about the park and what not, but we REALLY need to take a step back and look at the big picture here.
    I mean...getting mad that there is now concrete by the apple in HR territory becuase the HR lie was lowered.....really? THIS gets you upset? Really? Come on now.

    Ill be the first to admit, there are some things I dont like about CF. I HATE that the promenade doesnt circle the whole park and I think the place is a bit too "busy" for my taste. And dont get me started on the totally elitist ticket pricing. Heck, its not even my favorite park...Safeco is. But overall, the place IS just downright gorgeous and a lot of fun to be in. So stop getting pissy about concrete and the colors of the hallways or the fact they put purple flowers outside and just enjoy the place! Mets fans are lucky to have it.

    One more thing...the changes they implemented, from the new bullpens, to the museum, to moving the apple, to the murals are PERFECT. They did an amazing job with that stuff and it feels much more like "The Home of the Mets." They struck a nice balance of "Metsifying" the place, without hitting you over the head with that stuff like Yankee Stadium does. VERY well done!

    OK, flame away.
    As a "big picture" kinda guy myself, I applaud your perspective. Go in there looking for something not to like, and you'll find it. Go in there saying "is this better than what we had before", and "I'm here to enjoy myself; let's look at the good and not the bad" is a far more positive approach than nitpicking.

    On the other hand, as you suggest, this forum is for sharing of ideas and healthy debate, so I have to respect that too.

    An ocean of outfield, except in foul territory, crazy wall lines, and nothing behind the plate. I'd like to meet the group of geniuses who engineered the design of the playing field.
    "And their chances of getting back into this ballgame are growing dimmer by the batter."


    Put it in the books.

    No flaming from here. Excellent post. I always like to read what other fans write, especially if they have other ballparks that they like better (or worse).

    I don't think there are any at CF. Delta Platinum/Gold have 'light snacks and non alcoholic drinks' in the Delta Lounge, but that may be it. Anyone know what they mean by 'light snacks'. I hope it is better than what Delta gives you on their flights !

    Were these $12 last season. I may be wrong, but I thought they were $10. ??????

    Anybody know what the menu is for 2010 for the in-seat service ?

    I'm pretty sure they were $10 and the pulled pork sandwich was $8. Both are $2 higher now. But it does seem the piortion is bigger. For $12 on OD I got six big ribs and the pork sandwich was huge.

    Ok I'll flame away. You prance in here on your high horse attacking anyone who criticizes parts of the ballpark and yet you go on and start criticizing what you don't like about the ballpark. So basically you want everyone here who complains to shut up... just as long as it's about something that you don't have a problem with. See: hypocrisy.

    Also, it's funny (and ironic) how the people who are typically nasty to others on this board are NOT the ones who complain about the ballpark, but rather the ones who want others to stop complaining and be more positive.

    These are pretty close to my thoughts too - the analysis of the HR Apple/wall being the most annoying.

    Now we can debate whether the apple should have been there in the 1st place - the proposed location early on put it under the CF scoreboard (next to the CF camera tower) - that's where the ToNY dining tables are, so in that respect the proposed location would have caused more crowding in the food court and less visibility of the field in that area.

    The apple is around 15' tall (the concrete wall height at the apple is 16') - its not practical to have the wall of the apple be only 8 or 12 feet - the top of the apple would be visible at all times IN THE BATTERS EYE area.

    Which means - a) relocating the whole apple to another location, b) replacing the new apple with a smaller apple or c) keep the existing wall height and apple.

    IMO I think c) is the most practical answer.

    I don't think so at all. I went to every club at CF last year, and the ACELA club is very expensive. The only think I see where stuff is included on the mets site is the Delta Lounge.
    If anyone has specifics, I am all ears !!!

    The ribs were indeed $10 last year. Here's last year's menu:

    It's located in the right field corner. It's an additional monitor that was added late last season.

    Here's a shot that I took last August. It should give you a good idea of where it's located.
