Last game at the Stick?

John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle suggests that the Giants should play one last exhibition at Candlestick before the place gets blown up next year

I'm not sure what to think.Here's part of the Wikipedia entry -- 

The stadium is situated at Candlestick Point on the western shore of the San Francisco Bay. Due to its location next to the bay, strong winds often swirl down into the stadium, creating unusual playing conditions. At the time of its construction in the late 1950s, the stadium site was one of the few pieces of land available in the city that was suitable for a sports stadium and had space for the 10,000 parking spaces promised to the Giants.
