Did they ever move the fences in at San Diego?

The hitters wanted it. Did it happen in the offseason?

Yes they moved the Right Center walls a bit in, where it angles some. Though it's honestly not enough to really help hitters out at all, so don't expect any better numbers from hitters on the Padres.

At least I thought it was pretty much a sure thing, maybe a Padres fan knows for sure. I looked for a bit but couldn't find anything saying that they did yet.

I'm pretty sure they did. It wasn't for hitting reasons but rather injury concerns. I read somewhere that it had been done. I think they echoed the same thing you did that it's not going to help hitters all that much.

I'm pretty sure they did. I know I looked at the Padres site and there was a picture of it saying that they cut off that little triangle that used to be in right. Can't find it now but maybe if you do a search on the padres site you could find it.

I heard it would have led to 11 more Home runs last year for all players, so it won't make too much of a difference for any one player.

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

That is what I read.

11 Hr in an entire season, is not much to bump up Giles in your rankings.



Rate them as usual, and anything extra is gravy...

mmmmmmmmmmmmm........gravy................................!
