Buzz On Citi Field Changes and 2012 Payroll

According to Mike Francesa of WFAN, the following changes will be made to Citi Field in time for the 2012 season:

  1. The fences in the outfield will be 8 feet tall from left field to right field.
  2. The foul poles will remain exactly where they are.
  3. The wall in left-center and center will be brought in with dead center around 390 feet.
  4. The Mo Zone will also be brought in.

Francesa, who is broadcasting from Citi Field, also says that he has heard that the Mets payroll will be between $80 to $110 million next season.

“The more Mets people I talk to the more I hear the payroll will be less than $100 million.”

There you go…  

Funny observation – Francesa is on YES Network and they blacked out everything that had Mets logos and it looks like he’s in a black room. Even the Pepsi logo on his drink cup has been blacked out.
