You think the Jays will play a game/series in Buffalo??

After the covid crisis is over?

YES. Possibly.
Jays are not relocating to a new home in Toronto.
Instead, their current Rogers Centre home needs major renovation/repair. 
If necessary, why not keep playing in Buffalo while desperately needed renovations/repairs
(to an over 30 year old building) are completed?

I’d love to see Rogers Centre upgraded.  (Actually, I’d like to see it razed in favour of a ballpark, but that’s never going to happen).  But the stadium in Buffalo is too small in terms of seating capacity for anything but a one-off event, methinks.

The park in Buffalo has room to expand, but would it be worth the money spent to do it? Probably not, unless of course the Jays move there full time.

Agree with all posters regarding the need for improvements in Toronto,  however the Jays presence in Buffalo is an opportunity lost.  Upgrades have been long talked about for years;  but as long as Ed Rogers is calling the shots,  stadium infrastructure will not be a corporate priority.

Definitely.  They never even got around to finishing the interior the first time.  Cement grey wasn't supposed to be the dominant color of the interior when it was built.

As someone who has been to many parks over the years, Rogers Centre is one of the most depressing major league ones, behind only the Metrodome and Riverfront in its last year.

Tropicana Field is even worse than Rogers. And then there was the Kingdome with the grey cement dome.
