Has anyone been to Comerica Park in Detroit? I am possibly going to see the Twins smoke the Tigers on the weekend. Is it nice?

I've been there and it's a nice park. The neighborhood is also far superior to Tiger Stadium's since, you know, it isn't in the ghetto of Detroit. It's not in a RITZY area, since it's still downtown Detroit, but it's certainly superior.

It's nothing entirely special, but it's got its charms. It's not Camden Yards or PNC or anything. It also doesn't have the beautiful, worn appeal of the old stadium, but that's the cost of modern facility. But it's worth seeing at least once.

Tiger Stadium might as well have been in Beirut with it's location. We made sure that we went to a day game and got the hell out of there...

Comerica Park is very nice. Beer is expensive (where ISN'T it?) but there are plenty of concessions, a couple of nice bars, and a very open atmosphere (even a FERRIS WHEEL). You can even see the game from the street (though I assume you bought tickets ). The scoreboard is huge (largest in the majors, I think) and the seats aren't nearly as close as they were in Tiger Stadium. There are a lot of seating price options as well.

I'm going Saturday to watch the Tigers smoke the Twins as well. Oh wait, you had that reversed, didn't you?

Grimis, Tiger Stadium was DEFINITELY in a rough part, though I remember feeling the same way as a kid when we used to go to Bullets games at the Capital Centre in Landover. Bullets, indeed.

Landover? Come on! Landover is nothing. The Redskins play pretty much across the street from where the Cap Center used to be and it's really cleaned up.

Now, old Memorial Stadium in Baltimore...that was a scary trip.

Landover was never that bad. It was basically a flat field in the middle of nowhere, save the arena.

The drive to Memorial Stadium was the killer, not the Waverly area around the stadium. When we went there(coming from the south) we took Russell Street to MLK Blvd(which was scary) down to Howard Street, over on North, up Calvert to 33rd. It was that Howard/North thing you really had to worry about.

Somehow, we always wound up parking at Eastern High School and slipped out to the Harbor Tunnel Thruway, though I have no idea how.

He's definitely worth SOME risk cause he MIGHT return to form. But I don't know if the size of his contract (I think it's 3 years, $65M left) is the SOME risk teams might be willing to take. Personally, money aside, I think he will be productive again....
