It was weird, at the beginning of the Giants/Pads game tonight, that Krukow was talking about how the Pads hope to have the same kind of immediate success that the Giants had in Pac Bell. Only, he didn't call it Pac Bell. He called it the new name, that I already don't remember.

SBC Park. Rolls off the tongue wonderfully, doesn't it?




(Not Bob Kohm)


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.

God, the views out into the outfield are terrible. Looks like old, decrepid buildings like in the South Bronx. But I do see cranes out in the distance. Are they demolishing some of those warehouse-looking eyesores and replacing them with "touristy" things, like hotels and restaurants? I hope they are developing the area outside the park. There's just a big void in center field, so it almost "forces" you to see the gaping hole there and the first thing that grabs your eye are those ugly buildings.

I know the one warehouse is "part of the design" like in Camden Yards.

There are already plenty of hotels and restaurants near the park, in the city's Gaslamp District. And it's a stone's throw from the world famous Convention center, home to Comicon every year.

I wouldn't be surprised, though, if more development is planned, since there are quite a few blocks around the ballpark that I personally would call "seedy."

SD residents can probably speak on this better than I, a weekly visitor for the last 8 or so years.

Yeah, the ballpark is the start of the East Village renovation / reconstruction. What I didn't get good pictures of are the buildings like the Parkloft condos which are being built directly behind the park at the park. You can check out a lot of the real estate in the area here http://www.sdcondo.com/downtown.html - I have no personal relationship with this guy, but he's had a great series of web pages for Mission Valley (discontinued) and Downtown Condos. If you're looking for a Condo in San Diego, check out Lew, and let him know some complete stranger is shilling for him.

Just get me into the new yard. I'll be going to my first game of 20 at PETCO Park on Tuesday. I watched baseball in San Diego/Jack Murphy/Qualcomm for 30 years. Lots of it was pretty bad, some of it was good (like 1984, 1996 and 1998). When the Chargers got the City to enclose the east end of the stadium, it ruined the place for baseball. Now, the Padres have their own place, and, as a fan, I can't be happier.

I went again last night, and I'm feeling a lot better about the place.

I took some additional pictures of where I was sitting before, and I've got to say, just stay out of section 225. It really is the problem with my last review.

We were on the third base side in the $34 seats last night and I really liked them.

Each time I'm there I notice something else that I like.

Yesterday on the radio, Jon Miller was talking about these towers along the baselines that housed luxury boxes.

Are they in one of the pictures, cuz I didn't see anything that was what I imagined them to be.

(note: I haven't watched Thursday's game yet and it's a couple hours until the Sunday ngiht ESPN game.)

The light towers at the third and first base line are like this one: http://thezims.com/gallery/album13/100_2601 There are probably suites in there, sure.

Yeah, that's them. He did say they had lights on the top.

Hey, that picture also has the Clarion in it. That's where we always stay for the Con. You really would be able to see a game from the highe--up rooms probably.

There is a half season option. It starts halfway through the year. Maybe I or someone else will start one up this year.
