I know that Sports Weekly rates all the parks with a nice rating system pre-season, but now, I am not sure where to find it. MAybe search through their website? :-? I am not sure between those parks though, I think they are both neutral...look more at the pitchers (R or L handed and how strong the power hitters are against that handed pitcher) in parks like these. ;-D

No they did not rank it because the ranking system takes into account extra base hits, homeruns, etc. It is a pretty cool system, but because there were no games played there, it did not rank. But, I would gues that it would rank with the worst of them...LA, Florida, etc. That outfield is ridiculous, four guys could play out there and there still would be a gap... :-B

100 is neutral. 2 year park index (02-03) for runs.

Turner 96 run index

Jacobs 94 run index

Pretty much a push, as they slightly favor pitchers, to being neutral.

On a side note, that site listed at bottom, shows absolutely nothing on ACTUAL park indexes. It only shows numbers influenced by the said players. Don't get confused like many do.
