A post from May
1) AT&T Park- Giants
2) Coors Field- Rockies
3) Turner Field- Braves
4) Rogers Centre- Blue Jays
5) Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum- A's
I was disappointed at Rogers Centre (that's in Toronto for those that don't know). I was expecting more, but it looks like a rundown Tropicana Dome in Tampa. Tickets are cheap even using that funny Canadian money, but the atmosphere is pretty dead.
An aside... the roads on the QEW make that I-10 stretch through New Orleans look like brand new pavement. Saying that, it's a nice drive from Buffalo to Toronto with Lake Ontario as a backdrop.
Oakland... all I can say is the stadium is a reflection of the city. That's too bad because if they spent some money fixing it up it would be a nice venue to watch a game at. The surrounding neighborhood reminds me of the old Yankee Stadium days... after a game you'd do wind sprints back to the train. The neighborhood around Yankee Stadium has gotten much better over the years... maybe someone in Oakland should consider renovating the area.
Next up is Arizona. I'm prepared to be completely miserable out there watching a game, but it will complete the NL West for me. Strange how that has worked out.
