I mean 'Rogers Field' or 'Rogers Park' would have been so much more appropriate for a Baseball/Football facility.

Just something my friends and I have been moaning about for the past month.

They didn't want to make it baseball specific because they are stressing the fact that it's a multi-purpose facility and not just for baseball.

If you've ever been to a concert there you'll know that they need to do more than just change the name.

Or maybe they could have shown a commitment to the BJs and not tried to make it a multi-pupose fascility. I understand the decision from a utility standpoint, but as a fan, wouldnt you rather have them dedicate a stadium 100% to your fav team? No concerts, no trade shows, nothing but baseball - build a civic center for the other stuff.

Anyway - mucho congrats on such a bright start guys. I love seeing the Yankmees and Redsux lose. ;-D

Now at 6-2 and alone atop all of MLB.

Can we call a strike now? A lock out? Any type of work stoppage?

Eric Hinske leads the league in RBIs with 13 :-o . Am I in bizzaro world?

What the hell, I'll hop on the Jays' bandwagon, anybody but NY/ Boston out there. I did take VWells and am hoping that he can rebound and have a decent year for me. And Batista. Boo Yeah!!

Maybe it has something to do w/ Verducci's interesting article on his 'paper lion' experience w/ the Jays in ST?

Verducci doing the Jays thing... yeah that was weird. The whole time I was reading the article about the new guy in camp, I thought they were talking about Koskie. Then he said something like, "they even let me get my picture taken with the rest of the team". I'm thinking "WTF - he's our starting third baseman the least we can do is let him get his picture taken" :-D

Cheers to more dominance of the American League }:-)
