So this article bounced along a couple days ago.

http://www.oregonlive.com/hillsboro/..._ballpark.html

For all the comparisons the media (and not just The Oregonian) did when reviewing the previous ballpark proposals, I wish they'd do it here. Hillsboro is doing something inexpensive (with almost a perfect plot of land on which to place it), though NOT CHEAP, yet (and I should know better than to even bring up comments in a newspaper comment stream) this is news and the comments are often cuckoo and otherwise lacking in perspective.

At the same time, a very select few people knew the ballpark was downsizing last summer and only now, as the season ticket drive has now expanded to the partial package phase (ahem), this comes out. I think doing the math tells me tickets aren't selling as well as they/I hoped. Oh dear.
