Stadium Deliverence Effect

Yup, the Mets have been using Yankee stadium for 3 seasons now. The new stadiums in New York should be updated in WIS one of these days in the foreseeable future . In all reality it should be done after the end of the real baseball season, like about now.  They do have four years of stats now which should be enough to make assumptions.

Citi Field has been labeled an extreme pitchers park even though they have tried to fix that problem and failed. It should probably be marked as a -1 -1 -2 -2 -2 park for effects at a minimum. The dimensions of the park are the same as Shea, umm somewhat. The reason for somewhat is the non-symetrical outfield which has been modified along with the bull pens.

The new Yankee Stadium on the other hand is a pitchers nightmare. It has the same dimensions of the old Yankee Stadium right down to the short porch in left which for some reason was calculated at 0 for effect in the old Yankee Stadium.  They had to bring in aeronautical engineers to identify a home run problem to center field. Seems it held an odd jet stream problem that actually can't be fixed but was modified a bit to help. As near as I can figure out, it should be labeled as +1 +1 0 0 +2 for effect.

With my pitching staff, thinks me should move back to Shea when this season is over. Then again it doesn't help when your best player is batting .178 and only 2 pitchers have shown up this season so far. Think the epitome of frustration came in a loss to Salem. Giving up 10 runs in the 8th with a 7 run lead doesn't bear promise.

The odds look good for Detroit to sweep in the World Series, whether it is against the Giants or Red Birdies.
