The Post gives big coverage to the new stadium, with a spread on A1 accompanying the story "Lots of Glass, Capital Views." There are also companion pieces by Post architecture critic Benjamin Forgey (not a big fan of the design) and Sports columnist Thomas Boswell (who thinks it could be a great ballpark if the owners-to-be pony up a bit more dough than is currently budgeted for the project). There's also a huge Sports-front package of illustrations, plus the story "Form Follows Bottom Line", about the financial aspects of the stadium design. Also, David Nakamura, who covers the stadium beat for the Post, will be doing a Live Online Chat Wednesday at 1 pm. And of course, it must be remembered that initial renderings don't always end up being what gets built.... Also note that I've been tweaking my stadium page throughout the day, with additional renderings and photos.

Mayor Williams has unveiled the design of the new baseball stadium--I've added the renderings to my stadium page. Also, here is the Post piece describing the new stadium, as well as the renderings with descriptions.
UPDATE, 1:23 pm: Here's an AP piece about the design, including reactions from The Usual Suspects.
UPDATE, 2:36 pm: And the MLB.com story.
UPDATE, 2:57 pm: And the mayor's press release, and the DCSEC press release.
UPDATE, 4:37 pm: "Just a Nats Fan" Miss Chatter has some pictures from the unveiling, including photos of renderings from angles other than the four that have been released. Hopefully those will be posted on the DCSEC site before long (they seem to have made room for them!).
UPDATE, 6:50 pm: Take the stadium virtual tour.
UPDATE, 11:08 pm: Belatedly, here's the WashTimes "online exclusive" piece today on the stadium.
