SportsPickle reports upgrade at Minute Maid Park

Gotta love the guys over at SportsPickle:
Hoping to give their bland, cookie cutter ballpark a bit of flare before the playoffs begin, the Houston Astros installed a 40-by-190-foot pond in the outfield of Minute Maid Park on Monday. “Sure, our left field fence is only Little League distance from home plate. And sure, we have a pointless, manmade hill with a flagpole stuck in it in centerfield. And sure, we have a giant choo-choo train drives around the perimeter of the field, but the novelty of that stuff has worn off since we opened the stadium six years ago,” said Houston general manager Tim Purpura. “It was time to change things up a little bit again.”
Purpura said the team’s plan to install a giant Ferris wheel behind the pitcher’s mound was scrapped due to construction delays.
