An editorial in today's BOSTON GLOBE states that MA Acting Gov. Paul Cellucci has "presented a rational economic case for helping the Patriots renovate" Foxboro Stadium, but that MA House Speaker Thomas Finneran's "demands are beginning to look like an effort to make [Patriots Owner Robert] Kraft an offer he can't accept" (BOSTON GLOBE, 10/9)....In Baltimore, Jon Morgan writes how added revenues streams from new ballparks affect a team's on-the-field success. For example, he notes that at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, concession sales at "now routinely top" $500,000, and could hit $750,000 for tonight's ALCS game (Baltimore SUN, 10/9)....The family of Daniel Weber, who was electrocuted nearly a year ago at Bank One Ballpark, is suing contractors Perini Building Co. and Huber Hunt & Nichols, as well as the Maricopa County (AZ) Stadium District (ARIZONA REPUBLIC, 10/8).
