And, I still believe it looks cheap. Very cheap actually. I just can't stand the white poles they used. Or the stupid smoke stacks. Comparing GABP to Busch, PNC, Camden Yards, etc. it just doesn't stand up to them on appearance. They look sharp and classy while GABP doesn't. I know my view on the park isn't popular, but I stand by it. It's just an average stadium.
I agree with this. It's a nice park, but nothing special at all. They had an opportunity, but had the likes of John Allen in charge at the time.
If people want to see what "could" have been done, they need to get to the new Target Field in Minneapolis. That place is special.
And it can't face downtown only if you take the location as a given. That's the problem I had. It should have gone somewhere else.
