    They need to wear the road uniform at home.

    I blame Dugmet.
    "Mr. Martin Tanner, Baritone, of Dayton, Ohio made his Town Hall debut last night. He came well prepared, but unfortunately his presentation was not up to contemporary professional standards. His voice lacks the range of tonal color necessary to make it consistently interesting. Full time consideration of another endeavor might be in order."

    This morning Boomer Esaison on WFAN was echoed the sentiments I posted recently, saying that that players can play a little uptight because they are afraid to make mistakes in front of potentially hostile crowds at home. NY fans often take pride that NYC is harder than other cities to play in. Why? Why not make it easier?
    "The 90 wins is about challenge. It's about changing the conversation. It's about framing questions for ourselves as to how we get there. So I stand by the notion that we need to get better, and in doing so we need to set concrete goals for ourselves so that we have sort of specific conversations among ourselves about how we're going to get there." -- Mr. Alderson

    Because they can't. They are New Yorkers. They couldn't act like the nice midwesterners who go to Cardinal games even if they tried (which they won't, because they are New Yorkers)..

    that point is moot because there are no one at the games

    They need better talent. That's what will help them win at home, on the road and on the planet Mars, if they ever play there.

    I think they'd play better at home if more fans were actually in the seats. There's too much to do at Citi Field that involved not actually watching the game. I hate that about the ballpark.

    If the product on the field is worth watching, people will stop looking for other things to do. If the players are worried about how many people are sitting in their seats, the team needs a psychiatrist.

    At Shea, fans had no choice to watch the games because there wasn't much else to do. Not the case in Citi. It's not really home field advantage if no one is supporting you.

    How is this accurate in any way?

    I loved Shea for its nostalgia and novelty but Citi Field is a 1 billion times nicer than Shea Stadium.

    My only two complaints with Citi Field is they should have kept the field dimensions Shea had and that they don't accommodate smokers (not that any place in the city does). You have to go out past the Shake Shack to grab a cigarette or pipe smoke.

    Wait. Maybe Shae is his ex?

    My complaint with Citifield is that I can't believe the obstructed views. I understand why in some cases, but in others I do not. Also, with all the billboards it looks like a freakin minor league stadium. Yankee Stadium has billboards but they aren't as visually overwhelming. Erie-gardless, I was done with Shea by the late 1980s, and Citi is a huge improvement.

    Orange seats sux. I love the classic dark green color.
