New Detroit Tigers' scoreboard. Hit or miss?

The Tigers revealed plans for the Comerica Park scoreboard redesign. Check it out below. Details from the Detroit News here.

I think it looks pretty good. The addition of the large HD video board in the middle sure beats that black and white one that used to be on the left. I guess 1994 called and wanted it back. However, I do miss the old clock. Maybe people today can't tell time on a non-digital. Or maybe Price Fielder demanded it in contract negotiations. Who knows. I also notice the fact that the left field grand stand no longer blocks part of the board. Classic engineering mix-up.Good for the Tigers to not only improve the team on the field, but also the ballpark. If only they could improve Victor's health.
