    I'd love for Little Caesars to buy it. Downtown is lacking their deep dish pizza & stuffed crazy bread *drools*

    The nearest Little Caesars to Downtown Toronto is on Dundas just west of the Junction in a retail strip.

    In fact, there's no Little Caesars within the boundaries of the former city of Toronto (the aforementioned is in the former city of York), while there's another Little Caesars at Gerrard and Victoria Park (on the Scarborough side). Scarborough has five Little Caesars! Etobicoke has three! North York, like the former city of Toronto, has none as well. There's a Little Caesars on Jane Street just across from Canada's Wonderland.

    ^ Yes, I know all about that it's just proof of how unfair life can be! That one across from Wonderland is next to a Pita Land and they're perfect for lunch/dinner if you don't feel like getting ripped off and don't mind the walk.

    It would be great to rename Rogers Centre to something more baseball related.

    How about Roy Halladay Memorial Dome, with "The Doc" as its nickname?

    It would be such a great legacy for the late great Jays ace pitcher.

    I think that might be overdoing it.

    I like how Shapiro is mentioning it being a huge undertaking since Rogers is the only owner out of the 30 teams who has to pay for it themselves.

    Totally disregarding the firesale they originally got the Jays franchise for as well as purchasing the Skydome at a fraction of the price it cost the stadium to originally get built for.

    For everything financially Jays fans have put into their team and ultimately Rogers pockets, they should just suck it up and make the necessary upgrades.

    Every year around the same time they throw out this story about 'renovating' Rogers Centre.

    Best renovation they could do is to remove the Ted Rogers statue and replace it with Robbie Alomar stat!

    Isn't it just gone whilst they are doing all the work to the piping and waterproofing under the pavers?

    Exactly. The article is basically just Shapiro whining about the fact that there's no plan to use taxpayer money to finance the capital costs of a multi-billion dollar conglomerate.

    But it's coming back.

    It's funny that the only statue in front of a ball park is of an old white guy who happened to own the team, yet didn't care for the Jays, or baseball in general? Meanwhile most of the people who actually made a mark and fondly remembered by fans are Latino or Black.

    It's either Robbie or Doc.

    I would like to see a Doc statue as well.
