Citi Field: $850 million and still no hot water?

citi-field-hot-water-new-york.jpgOne would think that the brand new Citi Field in New York would have the latest amenities. After all, the new stadium cost at least $850 million to construct.

According to San Diego Padres pitcher Jake Peavy, however, the ballpark lacks something even my first crummy studio apartment out of college had: hot water.
But in the end, the only chilling effect on Peavy (2-1) and the Padres was the cold water at Citi Field, the $850 million venue that the Padres opened with a 6-5 victory on Monday. "Great ballpark . . . but the water's cold," Peavy said. "I took a cold (shower). Not exactly what you want, but I'm elated walking away from this game with a Padres win and series victory."
