I can't believe the poosies in Arlington voted for a new, indoor ballpark... Focking dumbasses, like a/c is going to make this team better.. .Winning puts butts in seats, not a/c.... And we have a beautiful park now as it is - very nostalgic, classy and awesome.

Look at the Yankees attendance since their new stadium.  embarrassing numbers. Why? because they haven't been winning.

 

People fill fenway even though it's a dump. Why? because for the most part, they've been winning the past 15 years.

 

new stadium won't do it.

 

Just win baby

No it 's not freaking old - just opened in 1994..... As much as I loved Arlington Stadium as a kid, it needed to be replaced..... But the Ballpark is freaking beautiful. I can't believe Arlington residents voted Yes on that deal.

 

Baseball in Texas - indoors. :rolleyes:

That was the scuttlebutt here when the Red Sox talked of building a new stadium in south boston.

Red Sox maybe average 2 to 3 rain outs per year?

I can't believe Turner Field was old enough to be replaced.

So, Strasburg wasn't going to pitch because of a cold..  Now he is going to pitch?  It's the series final game, would you even want this dude on the mound?

 

Thanks but, no thanks fella..

Dusty figures they were going to lose the series, so this way they have their excuse ready...

Last pitch of the game was a dropped third strike.

Jackson chose to argue the call with the ump and didn't even try to run it out. Serves them right. The Indians have no heart.

And, Sanchez didn't even bother tagging him.

I noticed that as well. I was very surprised that Jackson didn't try to run. I was also surprised that Sanchez didn't try to tag him, although I guess he could have figured that since Jackson was just standing there talking to the ump, the play was over. :dunno:

Plenty of time for Harper to practice his hair flip now that he's going home.

Bring on the Dodgers again. Fingers crossed this bullpen can hold a lead or two.

Yeah. Looks like Quintana or maybe Lackey (long shot) in game 1 against Kershaw.

The Cubs finally hit Kershaw last year, but he was on short rest when they did.
