Post-steroid era, huh? Manny Ramirez has failed a drug test.
Yeah, I have to join the chorus of writers and players (who don’t say it with words, but with shrugs) that Citi Field is a dud. Unlike Citizens Bank or Busch Stadium, which are open and boast good lookin’ views beyond the outfield, Citi feels claustrophobic due to a gigantic video scoreboard that looms in center field. Also, I liked the cheesy orange that was all over Shea, and this new place is very…black. If you’re going to spend a pile of money and build a once-in-generation ballpark, why not make it spectacular?
