    And no one will ever score on Homer Bailey again, either.

    The Reds could make an adjustment in left center in the bullpen area and move back the grassy knoll to make a left center to dead center Death Valley. Otherwise, they're taking away seats.

    But, just as a reminder, despite the continued perpetuation of the myth, GABP giveth the homer, taketh away the gaps, so it is not as offensively friendly as it continues to be mythologized. Most of its reputation came from the steroid era and bad Reds pitching staffs.

    Just raise the fences about 20 feet. Make 'em out of clear plexiglass so they don't lose any seating. As an added bonus, Stubbs won't flinch as he approaches the wall if he can't see the wall. :O)
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    I wonder if the Padres are moving the fences in to make a run at signing Ludwick as a FA.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!
