Good news for BDC, I guess.

How Thomas Boswell ranked all 30 MLB ballparks, and grouped them in four tiers

7. New York Yankees. They almost ruined it with the “new” Yankee Stadium. It will never be as good as the old place. In its worst elements, it’s a crass cash factory for the rich. In its best elements, it still feels like its Yankee Stadium, white facade and all. The park doesn’t “play” as well as it once did with far too many cheap home runs to right and right-center field. The Babe would hit 75 homers in this bandbox….

17. Kansas City used to be in my top 10 easily. Then they screwed the place up by destroying most of their outfield water features and chopping up the beautiful sweep of outfield architecture. It’s is by far the most damage that I have ever seen done to a wonderful sports facility by people who, I am sure, had the best intentions. I’ve tried through an All-Star Game and two World Series to make my peace with the place. I can’t. I want to scream, “All that this place had going for it, out here in West Nowhere, was gorgeous design and the water fountains at night — but that was enough!”....

19. New York Mets. Nice rotunda. An ex-Mets manager, who still loves the Mets, said it all after he saw the new digs for the first time: “Could they possibly crap it up any more with all that signage everywhere? It hurts your eyes to look at the darn place. But, yeah, it’s real nice park, otherwise. And it sure beats the heck out of that [dump] Shea.” The street of crummy auto chop shops 30 yards from the park is a touch. Oh, and the jets still scream over it.
