SkyDome no more
Toronto's SkyDome has been renamed Rogers Centre.
I'm listening to the live press conference right now. The Dome is going to have three new video screens and will no longer use astro turf (thank God).
Ted Rogers has also announced that the Blue Jays payroll will increase by 40 per cent. The new payroll will be more than $70-mil, slightly higher than the average salary in MLB.
As a guy who always has a Jays ticket package, this is great news. Without Delgado eating up so much salary and an increase in payroll, let's hope Toronto can at least compete with the beasts in its division.
