No, it's 3 times worse.
So you've been there? Specifically, what makes it so much worse than other parks you've attended?
It's a dome for one. It's generic and sterile. It's dark and depressing. It's the home of the Rays (Devil Rays when I saw them). The visiting team (the Red Sox) easily had more fans than the Ray did. The place was 1/2 empty. It's in an isolated location, surrounded by nothing put parking lots.
Yes it is a dome. The 95 degree heat, daily thunderstorms and 90% humidity, all of which last for six months, make playing in a dome pretty much a requirement as far as I am concerned. 11 straight years of losing ain't going to put asses in the seats, unless a bunch of bandwagon Sox and Yankee fans want to play dress up for the evening. And most of Florida is a parking lot. Why should downtown St Pete be any different?

wheres Pedro when you need him?
Lucky Shields didn't connect with that haymaker. He would have probably broken his hand punching Crisp in his bitch mouth. Kidding. The Sox seem to own the Rays, and everyong else, at home.

The Rays have slipped at just the right time; all of Tampa is currently distracted by Jeremy Stevens.

I guess you guys must be talking about AL teams. I've heard of the Yankees.
