"The toughest ballpark in which to hit home runs in the National League is not expected to have any dimension changes or altered wall heights for 2011, according to a source familiar with the plans of New York Mets officials.
The source suggested to ESPNNewYork.com that the only way Citi Field alterations would be considered for 2011 is if a new GM is hired that has strong feelings about the subject. The Mets are weighing options including changing the responsibilities of GM Omar Minaya or firing him outright if a new hire for that type of role wants Minaya out."
My guess is that this information was intentionally leaked as both a trial balloon, and as a negotiation tactic. If this is true, then this suggests to me that the Wilpons are willing to negotiate the field dimensions as part of the process of obtaining a new GM.
