To be fair, most minor league parks have bullpens on the field. Sure, said stadiums have smaller real estate, but the practice probably won't go away soon.
Well once Rays and A's get their new stadiums, you are never gonna see that in majors again.

Don't be too sure on that. Some of us are raising a stink with the Giants about hiding the bullpens. And the A's are certainly paying attention.
The A's will copy whatever the Giants are doing because they're the ******* A's.

Wow. Besides being gratuitously insulting, you seem to be totally unaware of the last 5 years.
You seem to be totally unaware of the last 5 years. The A's are trying to build a downtown-adjacent waterfront park despite the fact that the Coliseum is a much more logical site. It's pure jealousy and nothing else.

The Coliseum is certainly not more logical than Howard Terminal, although both have serious problems. The Coliseum neighborhood is dicey and for 20 years neither the city nor any private investor has shown any interest in investing in the numerous proposals for housing, tech centers, retail, etc., that have been proposed.

As for "jealousy", the idea of the retro style stadiums originated with Camden Yards maybe 30 years ago, back at the time when Giants ownership had sold the team to new owners who planned to move to Tampa Bay. Oracle (formerly PacBell, SBC, ATT) Park came along much later.

As for the last 5 years, who is Jealous? The Giants' President is the former head of baseball operation for the A's. Both jealousy and envy I would say. And you have to be a bit envious of a team that made the playoffs while the Giants were finishing 30 games out. :lol:

Who cares that the A's made the playoffs? They choked like everyone knew they would.
This is supposed to be informational, NOT a fan site about how cool your team is and how much your opponent sucks. Really, try to keep on subject and don't get insulting.

The subject was bullpens. If you have nothing to add, then don't add. Or find a subject that is not really just an insult.
