The Tampa Bay Rays new stadium looks weird at first, but overall I love it. Its unique, fits the culture of Florida with the sail design, and appears to be great to deal with any weather issues.

Wow. I really like the look of this. Good on the Rays for being able to pull off a stadium like this. Very cool!

Nice looking place and it looks like they have a nice trade in the works so things may be looking up there finally.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

I sorta like the Rays in a weird way, hopefully this stadium will help them attract free agents.

This is the 1st time this franchise is acting like a Major League Baseball franchise since they started. It's about time!

That looks like a beautiful second home for Yankees and Red Sox fans.

But seriously, that's a nice-looking design.

That is one bizarre look, but it definately grows. Fiesty's right, it definately fits the Florida look. And it can't be worse than the place they play now.

BTW, when did they drop Devil from their name?

If they played in another division they'd be favorites to win that division next season.

I hope you are joking. They have a ton of great hitters who all have a ton of tools. That team has the best group of athletes in the league but they need to find pitching. Their bullpen had to be one of the worst ever assembled and their starting staff is pretty weak after Kazmir.

Their staff is going surprise you. Probably not this season but the season after they have the chance to have the best 1-5 in baseball. They have 5 pitchers on their staff who have 1 or 2 type stuff.

BTW, you mentioned Kazmir but Shields was one of the best pitchers in the AL last year and had a much better year their Kazmir.

Don't say the "K" word. The slightest thought of that deal hurts my head.
