    I've always thought that they could add more seats where ever they wanted. As a matter of fact, I disagreed with a classmate 40 years ago, saying that the Sox could put seats on top of the green monster, so there.
    My belief is that they could totally gut a section and rebuild it including new bathrooms and concession stands. The job might it into the season, but so what, its a long term proposition. Its like when Truman moved into the White House, it was in horrendous shape and therefore gutted it. It would have been cheaper and less time to build a new one, but that wasn't the point.
    Renovate.

    Should have bought the surrounding real estate years ago (i.e., Lansdowne Street) which would have made gutting/expanding on the same site feasible. Now it's financially impossible, unless they extort (i.e, threaten to move to a close suburban town - e.g., Braintree, at their old drive-in at rte 128/rte 3) the city of Boston to help them out.

    Glad to see them still working at improving Fenway, but it takes away some of the history if it is gutted and especially if we leave it, which will never happen.

    Pretty soon there will be seats on or in the Citgo sign ... :p

    That citgo sign is such a landmark ... imagine the price they could charge for a Citgo seat? :confused2:
