    I first thought that I would not give him an MVP vote. Then I wrote that I would not. Then I wondered whether I would vote for him for the hall of fame, and decided that he wasn't really on track anyway, so what's what I wrote. I probably would actually vote for him though but I'd like to hear an explanation of the test results.

    It isn't. It does having heating but no air conditioning. The system does have the HVAC ducts in place should the team ever want to install air conditioning in the future, though. Considering that the Astros used the air conditioning at the old AstroDome to knock down opposing fly balls, the NL Central should be happy about this.

    They have closed the roof a few times during day games in excessive heat and it does help a bit just to be out of the sun.

    As good a photo as any for understanding the unique roof at Miller as well as the glass underneath it.





    This is what hitters hate... P in sunlight, throwing into the shadows at the plate, making picking up spin on the ball difficult. A Met on the mound, photo from a Brewers blog, stating the photo is from Miller, so I went with it. This type of situation happens in many parks to some extent.





    This is simply poor design... But is it? The glass is needed for sunlight to allow grass to grow properly?

    It's easy to complain about the sunshine, but there's no easy way to fix it.

    Just drape them with curtains for day games. The glass panels were a nice thought, but they do more harm than good.

    Miller should have been either open air, or a Safeco-style roof. The "one-of-a-kind" fan-style/glass wall design has proved to be a mistake.

    This is how a retractable dome should look for a day game.

    Now wait a second. No, I don't agree with you guys? What if the roof wasn't there and basically the entire green superstructure supporting the roof above the brick part was gone? Then this terrible terrible shadow from the glass windows would just be pure sunlight. I don't buy it. I don't think it's that terrible.

    That statement is basically false.

    Shadows are only an issue in many parks in late afternoon--usually around 5-6pm. That's why games are not usually scheduled to take place at that time. Standard day games end before shadows are an issue, and night games start after shadows are an issue.

    Miller is the only park where shadows are an issue during a normal day game.

    none of these have shadows with little holes of light in between them

    you are advised to just admit it is a weird park with stupid shadows unlike any other park and not try to say others have the same

    they dont
