    1. We are in a recession

    2. Development around PNC is the exception, not the rule. More often than not, a stadium fails to attract new development.

    wvkeeper are you crazy we are in a recession
    and the only reason the area around a ballpark is growing is because buisnesses think they will get more money if they are around a ballpark or any place that brings in money

Until the fans come in and observe these everyday things, it's hard to say what needs to be teaked to fit the fans needs.
    I have a feeling that 'built on the fly' park will have more kinks compared to your general new ballpark. It's not a good sign when your new owners admit to design flaws.

    I'm sure they're just working out the kinks now (though I do agree with the previous posts).

    I know when Citizens Bank Park first opened the count/linescore/stats displays were all screwed up and displayed in weird locations. By the second homestand they switched a bunch of things around and continued to tweak throughout the year until they had a good system working (still have some minor gripes with pitch count/speed locations).

    Also just noticed the outfield grass pattern...get that dude a bigger mower! He was cutting that grass from like 9am to 2pm. I hope that's just a technique to help the grass otherwise that guy is going to be pretty tired come September, having to walk 132 miles every time they cut the outfield.

    Also don't like the run totals in a black-on-white box. Why not leave it white-on-black like the rest of the linescore?
    Agree with both points. I do however like that the current half-inning is in yellow.

    I think current ball and strike counts for the pitcher would be better than the largely static season-long stats though.

    And much thinner than in real life. He's tipping the scales at 290 large right now.

    Johan with a 15-4 record, 2.40 ERA - and bringing a 100 mph fastball! Can't wait for the Mets season to start!

    Maybe Johan shouldn't be pitching the TENTH inning though...

    Thanks. I found it after zooming the living daylights out of the Press Box camera image. It's not nearly as obnoxious as I thought it would be...

    I don't know if this will change when games are played, but it looks like they're using the narrow mowers in the outfield. That's a pattern I don't recall seeing previously.

    Looks like the Nats beat Johan.


    And Dmitri Young is a white guy on the Braves.
