It's a pitcher's ball park, so let's put up a good amount of $ for the most ridiculously awful celebration structure? Yeah, that logic is flawless.

For how garish the thing looks, I thought it would be more...wild. Like, all the movements and stuff were really slow. I thought it would be more vibrant and energetic.

1. The lime green is still awful.

2. That's it? Not nearly dynamic enough. Oooh! It wiggles a bit. And does so that Jason Giambi could make it around the bases twice before it finished. I was expecting something more dynamic and exciting to justify all that Miami gaudiness.

So true. I have a hard time looking at those lime green walls. They should have just went with painting them black in my opinion :shrug:

You know it's bad when the broadcasters call it 'that thing'I agree. There were other things like this in the past with other teams that have drifted away.

Now if the Brewers could only lose that slide their mascot goes down.

As soon as I read this and then saw the sig, I immediately imagined Tony Romo shirtless in tighty whities dancing around it.....so disturbing yet so funny.

Honestly, if those two things were not there, and it was a normal stadium in that fashion, and the rest of the ballpark just remained the way it is. I think it would be ranked one of the best stadiums in baseball.

It fits for Miami, but it isn't my kind of ballpark either. Too much flash and extra 'stuff' for me. I believe in less is more type of philosophy, again this is personally.

Give it a year. When Miami doesn't win, they will continue to not sell tickets.

It's very ugly, and the worst part about it is what many have said already.... it doesn't really do much once it lights up. The lights blink and the little dolphins go in circles at a very slow pace but other than that not much else.
