    It's much louder with the roof closed.
    Big home field advantage for the Astros.
    Except for 2019 that is

    If you get HFA you should get to do with it what you want. Its BS that the commissioner can dictate that. I don't think it really matters but the players don't like it.

    Why do we have to wait. This game should start as soon as I get off of work. Now I have to wait another hour +.

    Why does Manfraud get to make that call?

    Darned that roof button malfunctioned. We'll get to work on it as soon as the MLB and MLBPA have reached an agreement. It's a tedious process.

    2021 Lineup is way better, so is the Bullpen. Only the Starting staff is better.

    To my knowledge, the Astros set the rules based on the weather. Manfred doesn't control the weather and is only forcing the Astros to follow their own rules.

    If I remember correctly from 2005, the Postseason is an MLB production and thus MLB gets to make all game-related decisions regarding the venues.

    Good article from McTaggart to that effect: https://www.mlb.com/news/minute-maid-park-roof-history

    On the plus side, our batters will have an easier time hearing the whistles.

    It's not whether WE decide to open the roof or close the roof. IT'S MANFRED ORDERING US TO DO IT. He's MANIPULATING the game like a gambling addict trying to set things straight with the LAS VEGAS BOOK.
