I respect your opinion and that you didn't enjoy watching the games in Fenway and Wrigley. Both places are outdated and I would have little problem if they were torn down. I understand those who feel they are the Mecca's of MLB but the truth is that they are [censored] holes. I love watching games in Wrigley. I almost love watching games at U.S. Cellular. There is something more pure to me about Wrigley. U.S. Cellular is a far nicer all around facility but I prefer Wrigley. The best possible thing they could do is knock down Wrigley and do a New Yankee Stadium kind of thing. That would be the best of both worlds. Old stadium charm and feel while making it a state of the art facility.

Comfort level was how I based my opinions on both stadiums. I can understand how someone would have fun at Wrigley, but for me, I can think of a number of stadiums I'd rather be at to sit for nine innings.
FWIW, if the Chicago fan base wants Wrigley to stand as long as the Roman ruins, then I think it should stand.

That is a lot of cheese. Will be interesting to see how a non tribune owned Cubs team is run. The big question may be is Wrigley torn down and replaced? We will see.

I've been to Fenway twice and that place deserves to be torn down, why not Wrigley? Maybe I'm just not that sentimental about artifacts.

I've been to both places, and they both suck in terms of watching a baseball game. But watching a baseball game in those places is secondary, it's all about being a tourist attraction.

That was the main reason I went to Boston anyway so yeah you're right
