No dimension changes for Citi Field

6 Comments

This stinks. I’m kind of partial to the Eighth Dimension. I think some good baseball could be played there:

The toughest ballpark in which to hit home runs in the National League
is not expected to have any dimension changes or altered wall heights
for 2011, according to a source familiar with the plans of New York Mets
officials.

The source suggested to ESPNNewYork.com that the only way Citi Field
alterations would be considered for 2011 is if a new GM is hired that
has strong feelings about the subject.

I would hope, if I were a Mets fan anyway, that any new GM who comes in will have “strong feelings” about assembling a roster consisting of the best players possible, and that they’d leave cheap parlor tricks like moving fences in to be a third or fourth-order concern.
