"I just feel like, if it were up to me -- and it's not; nobody asked me, and I don't know why anybody would care about my opinion -- but if I was building a stadium, I'd try to build it as close to like an older, cozier park," Berkamn said Wednesday night.Counterpoint:
"I think one of the things about baseball that people gravitate towards is nostalgia," he continued. "I mean, that's why people love Wrigley Field and they love Fenway Park, because you can kind of step back in time."
To this I say: stop.

KEEP MIAMI WEIRD.We don't need to add anything to that, but you should read the whole piece. Also, if you are looking for a new favorite Pirates blog (and who isn't?), you've just found it.
