As a life long Mariner fan, let me first say, thank god.
But yes, it does change my hopes for Beavan. He already was going to have to battle for a spot in the rotation assuming the re-signings and move are made I believe the team will make, but with the fences coming in, and his home/road splits what they are, he's due to get a hit a litle harder in my opinion. I have him for a buck in my long time AL keeper, and at this point I am hopinig we'll know more about his role 2 weeks before the season when my keepers are due.
That said, I could see the team using him as a long relief arm at this point, and the first to spot start in the case of injury.
I dont think the new fences will affect him as much as Vargas however. Vargas throws a little softer and is left handed, which is what will affect him the most.
