Sultan of Swat
What are your thoughts on this? Baseball is the only sport where the dimensions of the stadium are different from other stadiums? Do you like this? Do you think it creates an unfair advantage? Thoughts?
Pitch sizes vary in soccer, even within a league like the Premier League. For example, Man City's Etihad Stadium pitch is 105m x 68m while Tottenham's White Hart Lane is 100m x 67m. Can't think of any other team sports besides soccer and baseball where this would be the case.aseball is the only sport where the dimensions of the stadium are different from other stadiums?
I heard that as well - so I think you're right. Have they not done it yet? I thought it was supposed to be done on the offseason.I thought Houston was removing the hill and pole but I might have misheard that. Now that the Astros are in the AL I don't pay much attention to them anymore.
Anyway, I agree with Major here. I love that each ballpark is unique. It is something that gives baseball a different feel than the generic places hockey teams and basketball teams have.
I love how you just threw the flagpole in there with the hlll... like it's on the field or something.The one thing I think is a little strange is the hill and flagpole in the Astro's center field. Not sure how I feel about having obstacles within the field of play, but in a way I kind of like it because it requires the outfielders to have more awareness of their surroundings.
I always thought I'd be a salary cap guy....and was for the longest time. I was just used to it in football. But watching hockey go the SC route I have to say it has ruined some of the best parts of the season, like the trade deadline. It also makes it impossible to keep a team together. I know the point is to have parity, but is there really parity? The two leagues with the "hardest" caps have had repeat winners again and again over the last 15 or so years. I think the hard cap in hockey has made it difficult for the teams that are on the cusp of greatness but can't make the move that would put them over the top.As long as home, 1st, 2nd and 3rd are the same dimensions, no problem. You still have to win away. If you win 81 home games because of an advantage (not likely) at home and completely stink away because your lineup is geared around your stadium, has it really helped you? Like the Red Sox usually having a batting line up geared around that wall. If it wasn't for spending $100m+ more they wouldn't be that big of a threat. Man, I would love a real salary cap in baseball.
Really? The trade deadline is the best thing about the season?But watching hockey go the SC route I have to say it has ruined some of the best parts of the season, like the trade deadline.
