You Can't Get There From Here

With apologies to Watson for stepping all over his post... but mine has a graphic!

As promised, the intrepid investigative journalists at The Post have published an expose on the actual outfield dimensions at RFK Stadium. Now we know that the so-called power alleys are closer to 395 ft. than 380, and dead center is actually about 408 ft. as opposed to 410. With those stunning revelations behind us, hopefully our hitters will stop bitching and set about trying to hit doubles into the massive outfield gaps. (By the way, I'd have a little more sympathy for our power hitters if I hadn't watched noted sluggers J.D. Closser and Mike Lamb hit shots to the bullpen on consecutive nights.)
