Padres discussing moving in fences at PETCO
On Monday, Bud Black was asked what his stance was on moving in the PETCO Park fences.
“I think there’s room for discussion,” Black said, choosing his words carefully before taking a long pause and repeating himself. “I just think there’s room to talk about it in our park.”
Black didn’t expand on what he said, but he hasn’t been one to typically discuss the park’s dimensions, even to that extent.
I kind of feel like, there are plenty of parks where the cheap homer is available. I kind of like knowing that pitching prevails out in San Diego. Would I want my home team to play there, no. But as a baseball fan of a team that only goes there 3 times a year, it's good for baseball.
