Hey, Metrodome's not all bad

Hey, Metrodome's not all bad

A few hours before Tuesday night's game against the Twins up here in the Land of the Walleye, the White Sox were still thawing out from Monday's suspended game against the Orioles at U.S. Cellular Field. The game was stopped with the score tied at 3 after 11 innings of rainy, cold, windy conditions. It will be resumed on Aug. 25 at Baltimore's Camden Yards. Catcher A.J. Pierzynski reiterated on Tuesday how bad the playing field was. "There was a lake out in front of home plate,'' Pierzynski said. "I've never seen anything like it. They had all the kitty litter down on the field, but if you moved it out of the way, it was all water.'' The Sox open a two-game series against Minnesota tonight at the Metrodome. It's ranked very high on my worst-stadium list the last 15 years, but I'm liking this inflated playground after yesterday's fiasco on the South Side.
