Which came first, the chicken or the egg? Did Eric Milton give up a lot of homers becuase he pitched in Citizens Bank Park, or did Citizens Bank Park give up a lot of homers becuase Eric Milton pitched there? The problem with Milton is that he gave up more homers on the road (he gave up a lot both at home and on the road), and also had the lowest GB/FB ratio in the majors....by a pretty decent margin. Milton could very well win 15 games this year, but the Reds are going to have to score a ton of runs, since he will likely give up a ton.
That said, even if Jaret Wright had considered pitching in Cincinnati, I don't think he would do that well. I don't think he'll do all that well in New York, unless Leo Mazzone decides to be the Yankees pitching coach.
