CHART OF THE DAY: Tropicana Field And Fenway Park Are The Toughest Stadiums For Road Teams

Most people agree that the Tampa Bay Rays need a new stadium and owner Stuart Sternberg has ramped up the rhetoric in recent days. And when the Rays finally do get a new stadium, nobody will be happier than opposing teams.

In the last three seasons, no team has won more games at home than the Rays (158). That home record is matched by the Red Sox at Fenway Park and one better than the Yankees at Replica Yankee Stadium. The Twins are next (155) before a drop-off to the fifth best home team (Rockies).

At the other end of the spectrum, six teams (Nationals, Royals, Orioles, Mariners, Indians, Pirates) have losing records at home over the last three years.
