Jon Heyman has said on the MLB Network that Omar Minaya and the front office cannot come to terms as who the next starter to sign should be.
Minaya prefers Oliver Perez while the front office wants Derek Lowe.
Reasons for Lowe? He’s a groundball pitcher.
I was reading an excerpt on the Amazin’ Avenue website. Some of the Mets, which included David Wright, had batting practice in Citi Field back in September and claimed the park played like a hitter’s park.
This contradicts what we’ve been told and have seen. We’ve all assumed that it was a pitcher’s park like Shea Stadium.
If this is true, I hate to say this, but then I have to agree with the front office on this one.
Bring in Derek Lowe. Give him the money he wants. Just get it done.
Amazin’ Avenue has a great article about the potential of home runs in Citi Field.
It seems that Citi Field is a pitcher’s ballpark simply because the walls are extended further out than at Shea Stadium.
Too many contradictions.
