I went to the Astros game last night. Saw a pretty good game all around, Oswalt against Santana. Oswalt didn't look like he usually does against the Reds. Santana looked sharp early on. The Mets had a 4-0 lead and the Astros came back with five runs late to win in extras, pretty entertaining all in all. I took a few photos.

Here's the view from my seat.

I hate that ballpark. People talk smack about GABP. GABP is classy compared to this place. That entire yard is just one big gimmick.

I like that first shot, ORH. You could do a cool tilt-shift or HDR processing with that!

I like the park. I think all stadiums should have retractable roofs so fans do not have to put up with excessive heat and rain delays.

( I'm ducking.....:) )

Interesting -- reminds me a lot of Miller Park for obvious reasons. I'm not sure if I've ever seen all of the RF bleachers before...

Baseball inside just doesn't seem right - even with a retractable roof.

I've always thought that, but when it was 105 at gametime it was pretty nice.
