The issue of the fences at Citi Field gets thrown out for public consumption a few times a year. It was ruled out a year ago. There was some chatter about it in April. Then Jeff Francoeur weighed in because, hey, why not? Adam Rubin and Greg Rybarczyk of Hittrackeronline analyzed what it would all mean over the summer.
Basically, unless and until the Mets stop sucking, the issue will be debated. And since the Mets keep on sucking, someone asked Sandy Alderson about it today:
Mets General Manager Sandy Alderson gave his strongest indication yet early Wednesday that the team will modify the ballpark’s cavernous dimensions before the start of the 2012 season. He said the Mets are considering several alterations, one of which will likely be a reduction in the height of the left-field wall, which stands at 16 feet.
Alderson said “if we do something, it won’t be subtle.”
No word on whether that included trading for some dudes who can actually hit home runs.
