This week, the Indians are playing their last series in Yankee Stadium, which is being replaced by a new $1.3 billion ballpark. The roof-less stadium and the franchise have a storied tradition, and better weather. Therefore, they don't need a roof to secure their future. But a roof could sure help ours.

The Indians wasted their latest homestand with a 4-5 record. So much for a home field advantage. All other things being equal, roof/dome teams always seem to have an advantage because they don't lose games to weather, they don't get too hot or cold, and they avoid wind-blown home runs and missed pop-ups.

The Indians' offense is inept. There are two possible explanations - the team is MUCH WORSE than we thought or the weather has been just too cold, wet and unpredictable for them to get comfortable. I know which one I hope is correct, and if it is, a roof will fix the problem.
