News: Mets Lower Wall in Center Field

According to Adam Rubin in the Daily News, “The height of Citi Field’s center-field wall will be sliced in half, making the ballpark more homer-friendly.”

…if you look at the image in this post, you can see if they just come down to the normal level, instead of having that big barrier in the front of the Apple, it will be normal height… the thing is, this must have nothing to do with power numbers and home runs, because so few balls were hit out there, let alone up against the additional eight feet of padding… i’m thinking this must have more to do with better displaying the Apple… i mean, in his career, just eight percent of David Wright’s home runs have been hit to dead center… meanwhile, 62 percent of his home runs have been hit to either left or left-center field, a wall that has been totally untouched…

…of course, you know my thinking, if the Mets are going to adjust Citi Field to encourage more power from the Mets, they should probably approach the other teams in the NL to do the same, since the Mets hit more home runs IN Citi Field than they did on the road…
