The finished product doesn't exactly line up with the proposal pictures and as always, the internet is jumping on the chance for a roast.The Rangers' social media team gave the first introduction to Globe Life Park in Arlington, showing the inside of the stadium as well.The inside look is more impressive than the bland outside, but that isn't saying much.People have been comparing not only the actual park to others, but also the boring view it has as well. Some MLB teams' homes overlook beautiful cities or have a water view, and this one just seems to be in the middle of nowhere.Here are some of the best reactions on Twitter:I'd say it looks better on paper.While you're catching the game you can pick up some home appliances.It does look like a shed.The Simpsons really do predict everything. Somehow a Houston Astros trash can reference always fits.The first-ever retractable roof Costco is here!And the winner for the worst building is...The video didn't show this section of the park.This person makes a point about the air conditioning.It's the Toy Story/MLB crossover you didn't know you needed."Burgers coming right up!"On Tuesday, MLB announced a 60-game season that will start in late July. Right now it is unknown whether fans will be permitted in every stadium, or if each team will be allowed to make their own call on capacity.Some owners are planning for fans, but they will likely have limited tickets to each game.
