BP Triple Play on the A's

http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=3904

Mostly on the stadium issue, with some talk about Wolffco

Interesting rundown of the 7 stadiums that weren't built in the last 15 years or aren't historical landmarks:

Angel Stadium - Heavily renovated in 1996-97, it might as well be a new ballpark.
Busch Stadium - New stadium currently under construction.
Kauffman Stadium - With the turf removed in 1995 before massive renovations in 1998, it remains one of the more pleasant places to catch a ballgame.
McAfee Coliseum
The Metrodome - Monstrosity or symbol of winning small-revenue team?
RFK Stadium - New stadium plans in the works...or at least they are by Washington standards.
Shea Stadium - Can't build a new stadium unless the Yanks get one, too. Thanks for playing, see you in a decade.

StL and WDC are in the works and the Mets are screwed, which leaves the green and gold good guys and the Twinkies as the only teams left looking for new stadiums.

I'm really getting optimistic ... though, like many here, I'd rather just get the hillside view back.
