Of course it wasn’t as bad as we thought. The tool I used to show Jason Bay’s home runs in Citi Field did not use the “true” landing spots for his Fenway home runs. Instead, it basically just showed where they went over the wall.
HitTrackerOnline projects the landing spot for the ball, which is a much more accurate way to describe a home run. Take a look at Bay’s home runs from last year on Citi Field’s dimensions. Sorry about the picture, it could be better looking.
Yeah, so Bay might lose two or three home runs to Citi Field next year. Expect him to hit close to 30 and be a nice stabilizing force in that lineup.
And it does usually pay to do your own work, eh?
