Taking Back the Ballparks - Cincinnati Reds
  by SoSH U at work

Great American Ball Park, home to the Cincinnati Reds, is perhaps the most overly ambitiously named park of the new entries. I’ve been there a few times. It’s nice enough, and the steamshippish structure in centerfield is a sensible fit given the Ohio River and its Tall Stacks sit just beyond ...

Taking Back the Ballparks - Twins voting thread
  by SoSH U at work

Once a target of ill-considered contraction, the Twin Cities is now just the home of Target Field. The naming thread produced a slew of potential nominees for a new moniker, though with some support for the existing one.

We’ve narrowed it down to five selections. Choose wisely.

A) Great Northern ...

Taking Back the Ballparks - Minnesota Twins
  by SoSH U at work

As with just about everything else in the Twin City, the new stadium there sports the Target brand, a company headquartered there, not in France. Surely, the metropolis that gave us Husker Du, Prince and Craig Finn can do a little better on a name for its nifty new park*.

Unlike their wimpy ...

Bigfoot, and Unicorns, and the Red Sox Bullpen
  by villageidiom

Reports are that “Tyler Thornburg” is joining the Red Sox bullpen today. This is the closest we’ve been to actual confirmation that “Tyler Thornburg” actually exists.

Taking Back the Ballparks - Arizona Diamondbacks
  by SoSH U at work

Following the lead of the Rangers, the Diamondbacks owners were in negotiations over the conditions of their 20-year-old ballpark, which I like to think of as Miller Park Southwest (I’ve only been to Miller, but they strike me as pretty similar. Their retractable roof set-ups look alike from my ...
