Default I know the renovations at U.S. Cellular Field are probably done, but...

Would anybody else out there like to see the glass on the outside of the park be changed to dark green? I'm not in construction, so I don't know how expensive this would be, but is there a way they could just put some sort of film over the blue windows to make them appear green? (So that they wouldn't have to completely replace the current windows.)

I think this would be a final nice touch to the park. Plus, I hate any remaining smurf-blue (even if it is on the outside).

Not a bad idea. Inside the park there's alot of unpainted, grey metal railings (in the bleachers, by the bullpens, etc.) all around the park that I've never understood. Not a big deal...but it looks like an unfinished construction project. I can't understand why that would be intentional...it's not like to would cost alot of money.

I'd also like to see more detail on the out of town score board, not just which team is up and the score.

A few more World Series trophies and banners would add a nice touch.

I want those blue table tops out of the BPSB replaced. That's the last vestige of Dodger blue (besides two plastic seats, of course ) and they should make them either green or black.

I agree. Maybe paint them yellow similar to old Comiskey. Or at least a nicer green or gray. Add some brick to the exposed concrete as well - similar to the work done on the main concourse.

We're not talking a lot of money here, just small maintenance items.

As to the windows, I agree that green would look better, however I imagine that renovation would be pretty costly.

I completely agree with this.

In addition to a new scoreboard, I think a home run porch identical looking to Fundamentals out in right field would look awesome. Put some premium seats or a bar/restaurant up there.

A television news reporter perhaps? The home run porch would be awesome as well. I would also like them to enclose the outfield, not with seats necessarily, just a wall of sorts with arched windows as more of an homage to the old park.

I don't understand why the board on the fan deck doesn't have player stats on it anymore.

If we start enough of these threads, they will have to listen, right?

Or at least an out of town score board that is up to date. It seems to take forever for updated scores to be posted. I think Wrigley updates their scores quicker and their technology is from the early part of the last century.
