AT&T Park, Fenway Park and Wrigley Field top list of Rockies’ favorite ballparks

This is a fun story based on a simple idea: Ask the Rockies what ballparks they like or dislike.

“I’m not a big Wrigley guy,” Blackmon said. “I mean, yeah, it’s cool. But I don’t like being cramped, with no (batting) cages, no weight room, none of that stuff. The dugout is small and I hit my head on the top of the dugout — every time.

“And in the bathroom, near the dugout, I can make eye contact with the people in the stands while I’m using the bathroom. So that’s never good.”

I also liked this quote from Adam Ottavino:

Ottavino likes the “intelligent jeering” at AT&T.

“There are a lot of tech-savvy fans there, so they look up information on you and try to be funny,” Ottavino said. “It’s better than the usual stuff you hear. They’re more creative with their heckling.”

Charlie, you can rest assured that none of us at Wrigley want to make eye contact with you when you're using the bathroom either.

That said, do they actually have bathrooms by the dugouts that aren't fully enclosed? That's...bizarre.

Back in the 70s the powers that be decided the Bleacher Creatures needed all the instruction in correct urinal usage they could get.

What? Does he think that people in SF are better at looking stuff up on the internet? Is that what passes for "tech-savvy" nowadays?

Hey Ottavino, your line-drive percentage is 38% so far, up from 24% last year!

If only. It's troughs all the way at Wrigley, unfortunately.

Yeah, but it's not really Wrigley without parfum d'urine et de fumée de cigare. Mixing piss smells with vapors from e-cigarettes just isn't the same.

True.

Why did I click that? What did I expect? I am disappointed in myself.
