Gameday Thread: Nationals @ Diamondbacks, Game 3 (L)

The Phoenix Cardinals September games often had a heat index of 120 degrees F.  The former Expos owner, who now owns the Marlins, wants a free retractable roof stadium built for him in Miami.  There is no state income tax in Florida and he's not going to get a free stadium.  But a cooler place to play would help attendance there.  (Washington should have gotten a team before Miami.)  I agree that multi-use stadiums are not ideal, but they beat raking the taxpayers over the coals for free stadiums to help rich, pampered owners get richer.
