    In all seriousness, this is another one of the dumbest things I've recently heard of in the realm of baseball stadia.
    The only thing dumber is a politician who goes through with something like that, and there are many

    The Nationals should threaten to move to Montreal. They have a stadium with a roof and no threat of rainouts!

    In all seriousness, this is another one of the dumbest things I've recently heard of in the realm of baseball stadia. A $700 million freebie from the city of DC wasn't enough?

    Barf!
    According to this article, the Nationals had all of 7 rainouts between 2005 and May 2011. (I don't know if the "past ten years" includes their time in Montreal).

    At nearly $43m per rainout, I don't think a $300m roof is a good investment for the city.

    The roof pitch is the biggest surprise to ballpark nerds since Atl's bombshell earlier this month.

    There are some TVs overhead in that area. Last season, I sat in the first row of that section, just overlooking the Nats' bullpen. The seats are well-shaded, and I think I had as much fun watching the goings on in the bullpen as I did watching the game. These seats are also close to good food and drink options. Red Loft bar and the Scoreboard Walk (bar and some good food stands) are just one level up, directly above these seats.

    I guess I was wrong about my prediction that it was only a matter of time before this park would be named after a corporate sponsor. But will that happen eventually since they're gonna need all the money to keep Strasburg and Harper?

    I was in attendance for the first two games of that home stand, and I didn't notice any ill effects from the storm on the ballpark.

    And with game time temps of well over 100 degrees, the Nationals did a commendable job of making lots of misting fans, cooling stations and ice water available.
