As for Garcia - He had a 4.4ERA after the move to CHW. The switch from an extreme pitchers park to a pretty big hitters park took a serious toll on his numbers fellas. Good pitcher, dont get me wrong, but expecting an ERA under 4 is going to get you in trouble.
I've heard differing reports on this.
On another board it seemed that while they are making changes, there ius nothing drastically different about the dimensions or fould ground territory that has changed....
I don't know what is up, so do you have a link or a picture that says that the Ravine will be that much different
and even if there are changes, i'd find it hard to belive that cavern could somehow be considered a hitters park
Apparantly the foul ground territory is going to be drastically reduced. I would like to know by what %, but one of the main reasons Dodger stadium was such a friendly pitchers park to begin with was because of the large foul territory.
Dont get me wrong - Im not saying it will be a hitters park, but it will have a negative affect on their pitchers IMO.
