After trading for Francisco Lindor and Carlos Carrasco, Steve Cohen has more upgrades on his mind. No, it's not George Springer. Not yet, at least. Uncle Stevie is looking to make changes at home.
What kind of changes to the stadium would you like to see ? I’m looking for creative ideas— Steven Cohen (@StevenACohen2) January 13, 2021
Steve Cohen's Citi Field makeover deserves a show on HGTV. Chip and Joanna Gaines have nothing on Steve and Alex Cohen. I love it. I'm ready to toss a hard hat on, grab a sledgehammer, and get to work. Just say the word, King and Queen.
Citi Field is undoubtedly one of the best ballparks in the game. That doesn't mean it's without its faults. After opening with some questionable decor, or should I say lack thereof, there have been several mini renovations and additions to make the park more fan-friendly. Mets-friendly, too. But there's room for more.
Like every other Mets fan, my wheels got turning last night after Cohen put the word out there. Here's what I would like to see done, in no particular order.
Enough of my thoughts. Here are some other solid suggestions I picked up on in the thread.
You absolutely need more mens rooms. Not sure where to fit them, but when the ballpark has a capacity crowd (hopefully every game), you’ll miss innings just hitting the bathroom. Not to mention spend less on drinks...— Darren Meenan (@DarrenJMeenan) January 14, 2021
I understand the financial aspect to it but I would love to see it less commercialized in terms of ads. Instead of the Coca Cola corner it could be Keith's Korner, Acela Club could be Carter Club and so on. An all blue wall without ads would be a beautiful sight as well.— Athlete Logos (@athletelogos) January 13, 2021
I don’t think you can expand the kids section all that much but an outdoor carnival experience during day games like the Red Sox do on Yawkey Way would be great for families— Clem (@TheClemReport) January 14, 2021
Behind centerfield, there is a bridge called “Shea Bridge” but it doesn’t pay any homage to Shea Stadium. It would look much better with rectangular decorations or player silhouettes on it that were on the exterior of Shea. It would look amazin’ + remind us of entering Shea. #LGM pic.twitter.com/MHUttvcPcl— Brad Badini ⚾️ (@celeBRADtion) January 13, 2021
Ask your buddy @GuyFieri to put a concession stand at the ballpark— Amy (@akfanch) January 14, 2021
The beautiful, generation-bridging mural artwork that they just added to Clover Field should also be installed in Citi Field. pic.twitter.com/RtQxmjQCGu— Elizabeth Muratore (@nymfan97) January 13, 2021

What wasn't mentioned? Let us and Uncle Stevie know!
Tailgate with us on Saturday September 16th at Citi Field! Kick the night off with us in the Marina Lot! The Mets take on the Reds at 7:10pm so we expect fans to start showing up around 3pm. If you can't swing that early, just get there when ya get there.
