8-o $21 million seems like a bargain.

Not when it was built for $400 million using mostly taxpayer (my!) money.

The land is worth so much more than that. :-P

Field turf will be awesome..... that pale green carpet always bothered me. With the Argos getting a new home I guess the Jays figured why not buy the whole damn thing. And a new JumboTron - hmmm, the old one seemed fine. I believe it was the biggest Stadium TV in North America for a while (I might be remembering that from the opening ceremony in 1989 and it could be outdated). I'll buy the old one from them if it's on sale though :-D
