The installation company is filing for bankruptcy...

The new turf (AstroPlay or FieldTurf) will still probably be in by the May series with the Sox, but who knows?

Ha ha, I always wondered how they could make that stadium worse, but not having any turf would seal it.

They are working on a whole new stadium, if they can get it worked out with the city.

I hope they get it resolved and get that new turf in. The new turf with totally change the way the dome is. There will be no more jam shots in the turf that shoot straight up, no more Torri Hunter flying on that flat, fast turf, no more triples for Guzman. Of course, when the Sox play there, they always find a way to suck, new turf or not.

Do you know if it's true that they have been trying for about 10 years now?

Hopefully they'll get this done so we can watch a playing surface that plays more like grass (i.e. the way baseball is meant to be played). Too many UGLY games at the Metrodome.

There are a lot of people to convince, particularly the people whose taxes are going to increase, and a lot of details to go over. It wouldn't surprise me, but I wouldn't necessarily take it as a sign that it's not going to happen.

I wish the person who controls the fans between innings would file for bankruptcy :angry:

I wish they would just tear down that whole mess of a stadium. What a pile of crap.
