For anyone who doesnâ€™t know, Iâ€™m a big Mets fanâ€¦
Everyone done laughing? Okay. Well I watch the games on MLB.tv, which I recommend, and Iâ€™ve never seen a bigger contrast in ballparks than the one between the Metsâ€™ stadium and the Philliesâ€™.
I just thought it was an interesting difference between the two parks: Citi field putting more of a premium on hitting to the gaps and fly ball pitchers. Citizens Bank Park, on the other hand, values home run hitters and ground ball pitchers. You can see why each team is built the way they are.
Oh, also: The Phillies announcers on Jose Reyes: â€œHe does a lot of things that are annoying, but heâ€™s a really good playerâ€.
We won. Thatâ€™s all.
