With Citigroup circling the drain, it seems like a good time to ask if maybe the company has a more productive use of $400 million than naming rights to a baseball field. And now, a couple of City Council members want to force a name change on the field to reflect the company's 'new ownership'.
Staten Island Council members James Oddo and Vincent Ignizio are saying that Citi Field ought to be renamed Citi/Taxpayer Field, since Citi is now being thrown a multi-billion dollar lifeline from the Treasury Department. Nice bit of grandstanding, but it'll never happen. Now how about the Council get back to work fixing the budget deficit?
