First time at Marlins Park.

Boy, what a disappointing game to go to.

Well, you got to see a guy get 7 hits in a game for first time in 41 years. So you got that going for you. Which is nice.

That's true. I also got to see one of those special "the relief pitcher is batting" moments. Hah.

How was the park? I've been curious since they opened the place.

Everything on field and in the stands is gorgeous. Seeing it on TV makes it look dull. It's positively vibrant.

I thought it had a reputation for good food. Not my experience. It was pretty typical ballpark crap. Obviously could've made some wrong choices.

Even among ballparks, alcohol is incredibly expensive. $15 'imports.'

I'd say overall, B+/A-. As reference, I've been to the old SunLife, Tropicana, the new Yankee, Fenway, Nationals Park, and Coors Field.

I was there when the Phils were in town at the end of July. I liked it. The lime green is still annoying in person, but everything else is solid. The prices aren't great, as LN7 noted, I think I threw down $50+ just on drinks during the game.

Design-wise it reminded me of Houston's ballpark, which I've never been to but I have seen on TV.

Nice! Right, if you go again, maybe you should try some Spanish food. I'm assuming it's sold there. They've got 15 dollar beers at Yankee Stadium III also. I nursed one for 4 innings.

He had a hell of a night back in Phily though. Great game for us Dodger fans. It's still mind boggling how great this team has been with Kershaw on the DL.

Did they play Kashmir when he came to the plate?

I saw the Dodgers a couple of times this season and they still play Kashmir, yes.
