Whether they need it or not is irrelevant IMO. If they're going to pay for it, let them build a new one every 10 yrs if they feel like it, whatever they want, and this applies to any team.
It's nice to see that much of the tradition of Yankee Stadium, the facade(sp), Monument Park is being preserved, as well as the dimensions (although with this team, they'd be more helped if the short porch were in LF (Alex, Sheffield, even Jeter).

The only minor qualm i might have is that a fair proportion of this money (maybe as much as $300 million) will be revenue that would otherwise have gone to the D-Rays, Pirates etc.
Then Henry will have to come up with the cash just like Steinbrenner did.bceagles04 wrote:I think instead of the yanks, we should look at my hometown BoSOx, as the team that more than anyone needs a NEW stadium. Not just additions here and there. The RF seats SUCK. I went with my friend and was facing the CF'er the whole game. I had a neck ache the next day. And i am not obese or fat, but the seats are VERY thin, they were made for the avg. Joe in 1912, not the bigger america now. You cant beat the experience of goin to a Fenway game, but old is old, and we need a new Fenway
