they did a study with the Astros in the Astrodome awhile back, and it said if they fences were to be moved in, the Astros would lose 10-15 more games that season....

The fences are not fair for the Fish. They play in the worst hitter's park in the game. Tonight, we could have had a comeback if the fences were similar to those in other ballparks. The fish did well at GAB and Arlington, why would that change here with a better offensive park than now, it still would favor pitchers with plenty of foul areas and the teal tower as well as being at around sea level and in a humid area.

 

The Astrodome was ridiculous, it was under a roof and was higher above sea level than PPS.

first of all, the comment on this thread says "Should the fences be moved in?, Pitching sucks bad no matter how far!"

 

2ndly, I would say the first option is more demoralizing just because it would be hit after hit after hit after hit to score 5 runs (kinda how we Penny was giving up runs). One can make the excuse or reasoning that they threw one or 2 bad pitches, and the hitter took advantage and sent it over the fence.

 

Homeruns are more exciting though, and I do like seeing Lowell 3rd in the majors (2nd in the NL) in homers with 21! :)

Arizona Diamondbacks (The BOB is a hitter's park b/c of elevation, it looks bigger on TV than it is), Anaheim Angels (Edison field is not that big, we all know that)

 

Furman, you made my point. Being hit repeatedly singles, doubles, etc. is more demoralizing than HR's for the team overall. Lowell would probably be the leader if the Pro was a little bit fairer to the hitters.
