Open Thread: ALCS Game 5, NLCS Game 4, And More Bleacher Photos, Sunday 10/16

Cardinals vs. Astros, 3 pm CT, Fox. (Astros lead series 2-1)

White Sox vs. Angels, 6:30 pm CT, Fox. (White Sox lead series 3-1)

I could mention a certain other team that had a 3-1 lead in the LCS, um, about, say, two years ago, and looked nearly as dominant as the White Sox have so far this year.

But I think I won't.

Mike sent me this e-mail yesterday:

Went past the bleachers today, nearly all the concrete is gone. Was told they had to shore up the left field ivy wall, as it had begun to lean. The scoreboard looks to be held by a very tenuous lattice of steel, but of course that's all that ever did hold it.

With that, some photos from Saturday:

Top: Gate Q, or what is left of Gate Q; view looking north down Sheffield.

Bottom: looking up toward scoreboard and CF from Sheffield; view of ramp and back of LF steel structures, from Waveland.

Finally, I didn't want anyone to think I was avoiding this, even though it was first posted last Tuesday -- the results of the 2nd Annual CBA Predictions Contest. As you can see, I didn't do very well.

Better luck for me AND the Cubs in 2006!
