This will be the funniest news you'll read all day. Former Met Jeff Francouer says the team should move in the fences at Citi Field, to help his old pal David Wright...â†µ
"Poor David hits the ball to right-center so well and there it’s an out. They’ve gotta shorten the park up. It’s huge. I’m not saying make it a bandbox like Philadelphia, but they have to do something."â†µ
Hardballtalk corrected Frenchy that Citizens Bank Park is fairly neutral as far as home runs go... but once a place gets a label, then that's it I guess.â†µ
The interesting thing is that Francouer seems to have heard that Wright doesn't like playing in Citi Field. With the Mets reported impending fire sale, he isn't likely to get much happier...
