I liked this trip a little bit better than the time I caught three games there in 2000 because I was able to just go there and enjoy the game and the atmosphere and wasn't caught up being more like a tourist in that place.
I'd had some reservations that the seats (cgi.ebay.com) that I'd purchased off of eBay were going to be angled nicely towards centerfield and the right field bullpens, but to my pleasant surprise, they were not. I had to turn my head a little to the left at the game to see the goings on at home, but that wasn't anything that you don't experience sitting in similar seats in any other ballyard. I also lucked out on who I was sitting next to...I had a seven or eight year old little boy sitting on my left and my cousin (very thin) on the right. My knees were touching the seat in front of me, but that was expected.

In the context of baseball, the use of drugs hurts only the player. In the context of baseball, the use of alcohol hurts only the player. In the context of baseball, womanizing hurts whom? Maybe the wife of the player? In the context of baseball, felonies are crimes against society, not against baseball. In the context of baseball, gambling is the only crime against baseball.
Gambling, in the context of baseball, is a capital offense and Rose has richly earned-- hell, he agreed to-- his death sentence. Let him hang.

I saw it last night as well, and while Dan Shaugnessy being the first thrown off the wall would have been funny, I still miss the screen. As a positive though, I do like the return of the National League Scoreboard on the Wall.
