The best description of Citi Field I ever heard was it's as if the designers randomly grabbed pieces from other stadiums and put them in a blender.

A bank (Citi) pays for naming rights to the stadium. I assume other entities hold the debt; but could there be some way to work out a deal through creative accounting?

Their bond rating is BB+ but they play like AA.

It was supposed to be combination of Ebbets Field and the Polo Grounds. At least the Mets played at the Polo Grounds. I went the first season and aside from the top of the old score board and the Shea Bridge there was nothing Mets about it.
