Artificial Turf at Miller Park?

The Brewers are apparently considering replacing the natural grass at Miller Park with artificial turf. This could be very good news.

With players like Rickie Weeks, Ryan Braun, Bill Hall, Corey Hart, Tony Gwynn Jr., and Mike Cameron, this would be a huge benefit for the Brewers. Why? Because the ball goes faster and bounces higher on artificial turf.

Adding artificial turf would give the Brewers a bit of a home-field advantage.

UPDATE: Not like they need it when they polish off a sweep, but I want to be the fly on the wall of George Will's office when he finds out.

Now this is going to restart the whole turf v. grass debate. If you have a team that excels in playing the infield and knows how to handle the turf (aka the Big Red Machine) it is a thing of beauty. On the other hand, I think I like grass the best. It has a certain 'glow' under the lights that helps turn a ballpark into a cathedral for baseball.

Do you really want it?
