What are these changes to the ballpark I keep hearing about and how much of a negative effect will it have on various Philly righty hitters? Burrell specifically.

I believe they moved the left field wall back a few feet. Don't quote me on that though.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

A few feet or enough to have a negative impact on righty hitters?

The fences in left and left-center are being moved back 5 ft and raised 2.5 ft, dont look for it to have any impact on the hitters though that place is still a hitter's dream/pitcher's nightmare.

hahaha ;-D

as for the topic, i wouldn't expect it to have a huge impact either. It will rank up there at the top of the list of hitters parks unless the phillies do something drastic, which I don't see happening any time soon.
