Is a polished turd better than a regular one?

I thought Fenway had probably about 20 years left in it, and I'm being VERY generous in saying that. Geez, it seems like they're going to stay in that place until it literally caves in!

That's not very far fetched. Looked what happened at Wrigley a few years ago with the crumbling/falling concrete.

It would be horrible if either Fenway or Wrigley experienced a structural failure and people/fans were seriously hurt. :o:

If they keep adding seats on the roof the place will sink into the filled in Back Bay.

Fenway is like the old Comiskey...some very good seats and some very bad ones. Sections 3-7 are terrible.

Just thinking of what possible medical advancements we could make from now til then, I hope your son would live past 67. (And therefore possibly see a new park)

Buckley's Tom Sawyer analogy about whitewashing the fence certainly applies to the way that the Cubs have marketed Wrigley, as well.

Well, I was afraid I would never see a game in Fenway, but this gives me hope.

On first pass, I thought "great news for Fenway". Then I realized you were talking about the ball park!

If I am still around in 50 years I will be in the Guiness Book of Records as oldest living baseball fan.

Last year a couple of us actually drove to Scottsdale to pay our respects to TW. The entire episode of Ted and his son was a tragic opera.

Perhaps it will "last" the same way Yankee stadium did, with a massive reconstruction. In 2059, it may be more machine than man.

If Red Sox nation ever dies and the Red Sox are only popular in New England will the Red Sox ownership look for a new stadium then?

My own best guess is after ownership milks the 2012 100th anniversary of Fenway they will cash out and let somebody else worry about the park just like Harrington did.

A new ballpark in Boton today would be at least a billion dollar project and given the track record of major construction projects in the city probably closer to two billion (see Big Dig)

Look Harvard has stopped a massive construction of a new campus in Allston saying they don't have the money now. If Harvard is hurting you know things are bad.

Maybe to get through the next 50 years they'll just duct tape it together.

We all know what is going to happen in 2012. On December 21, 2012 there is going to be a massive poll shift on this planet and most likely Fenway will sink to the bottom of the ocean, so there is no wonder why they are not going to build anything yet. Besides Fenway will reappear 12,000 years after that and will be a confusing monument like the pyramids are to us today. Perhaps they were once used as a sporting venue.
