We can't wait to see the ads!!

See that tiny little box to the left in the picture above?

That was the TV screen at Minute Maid Park, the one that seemed so big and so annoying as it broadcast endless ads, lame before-game intros, hot-sauce races, Kiss-Cam and hilarious baseball bloopers, all needed apparently to keep anyone from realizing they've paid good money to see the Astros lose again.

Now the promised high-def monstrosity of a replacement screen has been put up, and Lord help you if you want to have a conversation between innings

If the TV wasn't enough, they've also finished installing even more digitized strips between the seating levels to make things even more neon-y and annoying.

Check out a slideshow of the new distractions here.

maybe you would be more suited at wrigley field where they dont feature any of these modern "distractions"?

It is the 4th largest HD screen in MLB. Once the Marlins move to their new ballpark in 2012, it will be 3rd largest.

is this really something to complain about? i really need to stop clicking on baseball-related links to houston press articles. it's typically a bunch of whining and no real substance.
