They did it. They finally did it. The Mets will move in the walls at Citi Field in 2012, and here's the pictures of what they intend to do including blue walls and an outdoor patio in front of the Mo's Zone. Yea? Nay? What say you?

No dimension changes planned for Citi

"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.

Should the Mets move home plate up ten feet? - NBC Sports

Craig Calcaterra shoots down the ridiculous idea of moving home plate at Citi Field ten feet closer to the outfield wall: The third and most important reason this is dumb is because there's absolutely no reason to believe that it's the park, as opposed to a lousy Mets team, that is the reason for the low number of homers. The Mets offense has hit 47 HR at home and 46 on the road (visitors have hit 81 HR in Citi Field and 77 off the Mets on the road).
