Twins first baseman Justin Morneau wants the fences at Target Field in Minnesota moved in. He says it is too tough to hit home runs there as evidenced by the Twins 52 round-trippers in their new park this past season.
Taking a closer look, the Twins did have the best home record in baseball at 53-28. So, does Morneau want to hit more home runs for his personal gain or does he want to enjoy the home field advantage the Twins seemed to have at Target Field?
If I'm the Twins I do nothing to the park. The pitchers seemed to like it. Hey, some parks are hitters parks and some aren't. You have to earn your home runs at Target Field.
I suggest that Morneau pipe down and worry about coming back from his concussion that kept him out of the lineup for 3-months instead of moaning about the distance of the fences.
By the way, the Twins are spending 6-million dollars for renovations to Target Field. The ballpark is less than a year old, why do they need renovations? Just wondering.
