No dimension changes for Citi Field

This stinks. I’m kind of partial to the Eighth Dimension. I think some good baseball could be played there:

The toughest ballpark in which to hit home runs in the National League is not expected to have any dimension changes or altered wall heights for 2011, according to a source familiar with the plans of New York Mets officials.

The source suggested to that the only way Citi Field alterations would be considered for 2011 is if a new GM is hired that has strong feelings about the subject.
I would hope, if I were a Mets fan anyway, that any new GM who comes in will have “strong feelings” about assembling a roster consisting of the best players possible, and that they’d leave cheap parlor tricks like moving fences in to be a third or fourth-order concern.
