Royal Blue Grass at Citi Field?

Blue turf at Boise State's Bronco Stadium

With a new front office taking shape, issues important to Mets fans will be under greater scrutiny.  Will we go over slot with a vengeance in the draft?  Will Citi Field's dimensions be changed?  Who will the next Mets manager be?  These are all important questions, but are they anywhere near as important as pushing the bounds of science and installing genetically engineered royal blue grass in Citi Field?

Far, far away, in a land called Boise, Idaho, there is a place called Bronco Stadium.  It is home to Boise State's football team.  The playing field, sometimes called  "Smurf Turf", is blue.  This artificial turf has spawned legends.  One is that flocks of fowl routinely mistake it for a body of water and fatally crash into the field, although this seems to be a myth.  One thing is undeniable;  It is blue.

Most baseball fans do not want artificial turf anywhere near a baseball game.  Major League Baseball has seen its fare share of ballparks with the fake stuff a generation ago.  Slowly natural grass has reclaimed its place in every MLB venue but one: Tampa Bay's Thunderdome Tropicana Field.

What about Citi Field?  If modern science is able to genetically engineer royal blue grass, should the Mets adopt it?  After all, 29 MLB ballparks have yellow painted foul poles, but the Mets have orange.  Shouldn't we have grass to match?
