So...5 years later Theo Epstein finally lands Bartolo Colon. And he didn't even have to give up Casey Fossum and Shea Hillenbrand. Maybe next year the Sox will get Javier Vazquez...

I must be a moron...I thought that was to have a retractable roof.

Could we emergency-unban U2Kitten to clear that up?

The Minnesota Gophers new Stadium will also be an outdoor stadium. TCF Bank Stadium, right on their campus. Outdoors. Outside.

No more Metrodome for them.

In the Fall. Out of doors.

I think Wilton Veras for Vazquez would be a good deal.

A few things to factor in:

Before there was such a thing as the sucktastic Metrodome, there was this thing called Metropolitan Stadium. So, from 1961 to 1982, Major League Baseball was played outside. That was before Al Gore invented Global Warming - so the Springs were REALLY bad and stuff - like a Queens winter.

The stadium will have heat that will keep the seating areas warm. April will suck, but Minnesotans are a hardy bunch. And the worst blizzard I can remember in Minnesota at least waited to fall until one week AFTER the Twins won the World Series in 1991.

As a Twins fan, I would rather freeze my ass off during a few games in April rather than sit through a perfectly beautiful Summer afternoon/evening in that friggin dome that smells like you are doing backstrokes in a pool of two-day old hot dog water.

Ew does it really smell like hot dog water in there? That's gross. I confess I've been in exactly one dome (not counting the storied Gampel Pavilion on the University of Connecticut campus in Storrs). It was the Astrodome and it smelled vaguely of popcorn. But hot dog water? You'd think it could at least smell like Twinkies

While I agree that a stadium up north, in the summer, you'd want it to be open-air...but spring/fall can be pretty ugly. It's all about the retractable roof though. Fenway can be a bitch for those early April dates (though a roof on Fenway would make me gag).
