New pictures of The New Yankee Stadium (TNYS)

Greg from Sliding Into Home has been the leading source of new pictures of the construction of TNYS. The impacts of this new cathedral to capitalism will be felt across all of baseball. Fewer seats but a ton of luxe suites which will be not dissimilar to installing free cash machines in Hank's office.

I'm already on record being against the layout of the upper deck, as it seems it will be more bowl-like than stacked like it currently is configured. Too much like Shea than Yankee Stadium. The current configuration keeps the fans closer (and louder) to the field. I fear that the new layout will keep the upper deck fans too far from the action. We'll see, I guess.
