Jacobs Field

Hey Guys,

Been reading with much interest from across the pond and I'd love to thank Jay and Ryan for all the hard work which allows me to stay up to date from over here in the UK.

I've got a question that I was hopeing someone could clear up.  I heard a few months ago that the naming rights on Jacobs Field were for 10 years and were due to be up this year.  Is this true and will the name be changing?  

I'm interested because my local football (soccer) team is opening a new stadium named after an airline and I hate it, but I understand the realities of business.

Any idea who might take the rights and when?

Here's hoping it won't something as bad as Petco Park or Minute Maid Field.

By the way, the Crisp-Marte deal, not sure about it but agree risk had to be taken. I would have hated to see Marte go on to be an all-star if we hadn't got him.
