Remember a few months ago there was the article that Arte Moreno was looking to possibly build a new Angels Stadium in downtown L.A.? Well, why couldn't the Dodgers do that? Build a new Dodger Stadium somewhere near Staples Center or Union Station and/or light rail station. I have realized that up on the hill is not a good location at all - it's way too isolated. Bring the Dodgers down to L.A. to become part of the city.

Turn Chavez Ravine back into housing, like it used to be. (did I just say that?)
Yeah, they can start by tearing down that piece of **** that is the Coliseum and plop it right over there. Or they could knock down some of the other many dilipated buildings and DTLA and gentrify it like AEG has done with STaples/LA Live. People bring up traffic issues in DTLA as if Dodger Stadium is currently in the boondocks. It is right smack in the middle of some major freeway interchanges.
