Photoshop of what the Rogers Centre looks like with real grass. Looks fantastic.

Would be another year or two at the earliest before something like that gets installed though.

Ok. I thought it was either a poke at the crowd size or if that guy on the jumbotron is significant for any particular reason.

Hate that guy and pretty much every player that was a longtime 'Brave'. Just hate that franchise. Sounds like a real dink.

I remember that ESPN show that went to his "prison" in Venezuela. What a joke. They treated him like a king.

I would hope all 30 MLB teams would show no desire in adding a guy who tried to murder several people

And why would the US government grant an ex-con a Visa?

Quote:
Assistant general manager Dan Jennings told Jim Bowden on SiriusXM radio this morning that the Marlins are not actively shopping slugger Giancarlo Stanton.

But Jennings did say the Marlins will listen to offers for the young right fielder.

“We’ve never not listened to a deal on any player,” Jennings said.

There has been speculation that Miami could try to move Stanton before the season starts. Stanton has voiced his displeasure over the team’s direction after the Marlins this off-season traded away key players players such as Jose Reyes and Josh Johnson.

i'd put my condo on the market if i were stanton.

since he was so upset by the blue jays trade, i wonder how much fun he'll be on his way out of town.

Stanton isn't making a ton of money yet and is one of the few guys on that team who can hit a homer.

I doubt he gets traded for at least 2 years.

He could easily be making quite a bit this offseason since I believe he's on arbitration.
