So is the Dome open or closed?

Postby The Jury » Tue Oct 25, 2005 11:09 pm

Just wondering who won - MLB or the Astros?

MLB won. IMO the Astros should be the ones to pick if their dome is open or not.

Why? If it ain't raining and it ain't snowing you play outside like everyone else in MLB. You want to play ina dome, build a permanent one. The home team should not be allowed to choose when it suits their needs to open up a roof.

Of course they should. If the same with cutting/not cutting the grass, overwatering, etc..

I agree, though building a permanent dome would take the decision away from MLB, but that may also be hindsight...

It's not exactly the same.

Those things affect each team the same. Having a roof closed so that the crowd can have a more disruptive effect than usual gives the crowd more ability to disrupt the visiting team.

That said, I think you have to go by what MLB did before and they made Arizona do it. Why should Houston get to choose when Arizona didn't?

If I owned the Astros, I'd ask how much my fine will be for not doing what MLB tells me to, and then delivering that exact amount, in cash, directly to Bud Selig at the game. F you Bud!!

I agree that the Astros should be able to decide if the roof is open or closed. They were able to do this throughout the year, why does it have to change now? Its their field, their decision.

BUD SELIG :-t :-t :-t

That's the big problem I have with it. All year it is the Astros decision and now in the playoffs there are different rules?

I was thinking the exact same thing ..

I would love to see Bud try and hold up the series because they wouldn't open the roof.

what a stupid decision.

As was pointed out before, teams cut the grass differently depending upon their opponents, and I fail to see how this is any different.
