Seriously, why are they tearing down Yankee Stadium? Another historical venue bites the dust to make more money, pricing out the real fans. The new stadium will have higher prices and fewer seats. I wish sports weren't so popular. Here's a great article questioning the teardown, which I agree with. When you price out your best fans, the casual fans eventually get less interested. It's going to come crashing down someday.
Also, I just think it's bad juju to tear down the stadium where you've had your best years to hopefully get some more cash. It hasn't done the Reds any good.
