Im thinking the Sox will take advantage of next years opportunity.
As doub and eriq said, though, the Red Line is just being re-routed. It's not shutting down. It'll stop at IIT-Bronzeville, which is maybe an extra 2-block walk or so from Sox-35th.

Yes we know but most dont and being dropped off east of the ryan is very scarey for many unknowing fans.

If so, the Sox will have to market that option and make it known of the Green Line option.

As for the ignorance about the neighborhood, I think the Sox have done a terrible job at countering those myths and stereotypes over the years. I hear that crap from people who otherwise know little about the team and may have never even been to a Sox game, or Chicago in general.

Made that walk many, many times before the Dan Ryan was built.

If they raise parking fees next season, I'll be going to less games. Cost is a big factor for me.

I could care less about fun stuff at the park. Good food for a decent price to accompany a competitive team on the field is enough for me. But we're all individuals and we want different things when we go out and spend our money. I would understand and welcome it if the Sox try some things out at the Cell to increase interest in the team and diversify the fan base. Even if I don't care about in-game entertainment or whatever else they come up with.

In 1962 I had to do the walk after the fans were all gone as my buddy and I were vendors that year and we had to bank out and collect our commission money.

I think Peavy might be out of our price range, even though I would also like to have him back.
As for Myers, I don't think losing him will be that big of an issue. However, I could see Crain and Thornton getting traded so maybe adding a few more bullpen arms wouldn't hurt.

LOL. What, past the scary Starbucks or the scary popcorn shop? Plus the area is crawling with cops.

This whole "is the neighborhood safe" deal is so overblown, it's ridiculous.

BTW: Me and my friends took the CTA train from 35th to 95th street and waited for the bus outside the 95th station all the time back in the 70's and 80s, with no issues.

I think I like your dad. I've made that walk more than the one from the Ryan. The automobile took over at a certain age. Walk past IIT, gotta try it, just for nostalgia's sake. Every time I drive in that way it's crawling with cops.

During the mid and late 60's, we used to ride our bikes from Archer and Ashland to the ballpark 2 or 3 times a week during the summer .. nice memories .. when i was 12, my buddy and i got stranded at Wrigley Field and had to walk all the way home .. that was an interesting walk ..

We walked home a few times from Wrigley and also from Riverview but lived at 6700 north, that walk you had was something else, what route did you take, west on Addison to Ashland and then south the rest of the way?
