  • Being close to a bar or a restaurant to me is only important on the weeknight games, on the weekends even for baseball I see people having enough time to get their early and cook out.
    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time.

    • Getting back to Petco Park, here's a picture of the grass being re-sodded. You can also see construction in right center field on the new pier party deck. You can't see it in this picture, but the team is painting the concrete facade in front of the upper deck blue (would've rather have seen sand like the color of the ballpark's exterior).

      • Re-sodding? So the drought is over?

That was used by JMI, the developer that's spearheading the current downtown "convadium" proposal, last year when the Chargers sole focus was on Los Angeles. Dean Spanos met with a group of fans today at Chargers headquarters and talked about putting a fabric retractable roof on a downtown stadium. A financing plan hasn't even been revealed but is expected to be revealed soon.
          Just curious. Why do they need a roof in San Diego? Isn't the climate almost perfect year round?

            It's not the climate (and yes, it's wonderful), it's the necessity to market the facility as joint use so that it can be used both for football as well as other events, particularly conventions.

                And the College Football Playoff National Playoff but definitely the Final Four. The latter hasn't been on the West Coast since Seattle in the 1990s. With the Inglewood Stadium opening up in LA in 2019 and the potential for a new facility here with a fabric roof, you could finally have the Final Four on the West Coast every few years to break the stranglehold the Midwest and South have had on that.

                Getting back to Petco Park, main construction on that new sun deck looks almost finished from what I saw today (didn't get any pictures unfortunately). Can't wait for the ballpark to be showcased nationally in July during the All Star Game. Unfortunately the Padres won't be able to do that themselves with a playoff run for a while.

                • Anytime you see a roof on a football stadium anymore it's to win a final four bid. There seems to be big money in final fours, just don't ask St. Pete, we never tried to get another one again lol

                    • Fox pilot "Pitch"

                      I guess they will be filming at Petco for 2 weeks.

                      • Padres clubhouse in "Pitch". Even in Hollywood, the Padres maintain that dull, forgettable identity.

                          The movie will be dated too considering that those specific jerseys those two are wearing are one-off jerseys. They're only going to be worn this season to commemorate the 2016 All Star Game and the team will reassess its look (again) in the offseason. Hopefully the new brown Friday night jersey is a sign of things to come, though I won't get my hopes up.

                            • Beautiful day to start the season. A 15-0 loss to the Dodgers on the other hand...
