I know all the cool kids hate it (Sample: "There it sits proudly like a giant middle-finger to good taste."), but I kinda like the ugly beauty thing the Marlins are doing with the centerfield structure. It's hideous, but in a way that is pitch-perfect. And for real, we're talking about a baseball stadium here, not a government building (okay, the government is basically paying for most of it, but still...).
If this is the Marlins' way of making their stadium stand out, then that's cool with me. It's not as awesome as the flagpole in centerfield and train in Minute Maid Park, but it'll do.
Besides, what about Miami screams good taste anyway? Are we worried that the centerfield structure will soil the reputation of Miami International Airport?
