EVERYBODY ELSE IS WEIGHING IN on the World Trade Center site plans. Jeff Jarvis even weighed in by videoblog. So here's my thought:

Build a baseball stadium. What's more American than a baseball park? And what's cooler than one right by Wall Street? That's double-barrelled Americanism. And it would help bring people to Lower Manhattan at night.

If only you could get the Dodgers to play there, it would be perfect.

Okay, it's a dumb idea -- but no dumber than a lot of ideas I've heard. And it would be cheaper, and you could get hot dogs there.

UPDATE: Baseball blogger David Pinto loves the idea.

Say, if every fantasy sports discussion board starts pushing this, it could happen.
