Spent the afternoon at Shea. Omar Minaya talked of the need for pitching. That was an earlier post. After Omar, Jeff Wilpon gave the writers a tour of the new stadium. They are on schedule if not ahead.
In the middle of the construction site there’s an area marked off where home plateÃ‚Â will be. Plus, they have the outfield distances marked. You can really get a sense of where things are going to be and what the place will look like.
Work should be completed in December 2008, which should give them roughly four months to work out the bugs before the place opens.
