    Bud Selig did the right thing not allowing astros close the roof if its not raining.Tempertures are fine in houston not real cold so no need to close the roof.Retractable roof stadiums are not for using like home field advantage.Its for preventing rain delays and when its too cold to play.I think next year umps should be the ones who decides when the roof gets open or closed not the home team.

        I also agree with you on this. Retractable roofs should be used in order to play a game on a day when you otherwise couldn't. Other then extreme weather conditions, the roof should be open.

          I agree...

          I agree with you guys in that the retractable roof's only use is to reduce the number of rain delays to nill. It should not be used as a home field advantage like the Houston Astros did towards the end of the regular season and this postseason. I'm fine with having a retractable roof on top of a stadium in a fairly wet climate. However, it's the retractable roofs in dry climates that don't make any sense.

          On a side note: Baseball needs to abolish permanent dome stadiums. Baseball has always been an outdoor sport, leave it that way!

            Look at Arizona dimondbacks home bank one ballpark.Its closed cause its so godly hot in the summer you couldnt play in 110+ temps.But during playoff time it gets like 85-90 day and 80-85 at night so you can play in those conditions with roof open. In Florida domes should be closed day & night cause of the humidity. But roof should be open at night in florida in october cause its not as humid like in august and september.

              Ah I stand corrected. However, I still feel that the roof should only be shut if weather prevents the game from being played or is so hot to make it unbearable.

                    i like them in certian locations where it rains alot. domes are so ugly i hate them.

                    i disagree with the selig thing you guys brought up. yes, it wasnt raining and yes, i would have hated to see that roof go up but it's houston's ballpark, they should be able to do what they want.

                      I've been to 3 of them .....

                      I've been to 3 of them ..... in Milwaukee, Toronto and Houston. I didn't care for any of them. I absolutely detest indoor baseball. And when they have their roofs open the structure simply dwarfs the field.

                      I think the weather elements should be a part of the game just as they were for the first 120 years it was played. I don't think the game should be changed because weather conditions somewhere are not conducive to it.

                            As long as there super super quiet, are fast, dont distract, and above all do something cool like fold out or flip out like one of those cool calculators that open by themselves, then there ok.lol.

                              Safeco is first rate

                              Of course, prior to that I was sweating it out inside the Kingdome which had a disconcerting habit of letting rooftiles drop a couple a hundred feet on to the floor.
                              Seriously, the Safeco roof is a cool thing and still allows one to feel outdoors. Plus it is nice to watch the damn thing slide across.
