    I always thought Kaufmann Stadium was one of the most beautiful ballparks I've ever seen. Maybe its the shots I'm looking at but I love the fountains. The "hit it here" truck in the far left field is cheesy, but other than that I like it.

    It was, now everything is cheesy as shit. They had some shitty architects remodel it a couple years ago , which severely diminished the fountain element, to the benefit of a bunch of hideous advertising signs, plastic shit, and empty seating sections that are better suited to an Arena League Football game. Everything looks cheap as fuck now, and the game atmosphere is just shit. It's embarrassing. Fuck.

    At least, Kansas City has a ballpark organist! Better than the canned music heard nearly everywhere else--including Comerica Park in Detroit. I'd love that job. I agree with you that the architects "improvements" are terrible.

    If there is an organist, he took the night off last time I was there. They had Kenny Chesney and a bunch of other buttclowns filling in.

    You have to acknowledge a 10 inning start from Cliff Lee. Best 1-2 starting combo I've seen in a while. Better than Johnson and Schilling.

    Yu Darvish! Oh, my gosh! He killed us, last night. At the bottom of the 9th inning, a friend texted me a classic Ernie Harwell saying: "All we need are 7 runs to tie and 8 runs to win."

    a subscription to mlb.tv is a little spendy for the whole season, but they did a really nice job on it.

    You also have to acknowledge that the Phillies find a way to LOSE THESE FUCKING GAMES.

    The Sox have been playing pretty well during an unspoken "rebuilding" year, and then they gift us with this. Humber seems to be finally living up to his potential these past couple of seasons.

    As a side note, I love how fast Wikipedia gets updated.
