We have a pretty good idea why David Wright is smiling a lot more this season. Just look at his numbers. Is the change in dimensions of his home ballpark a factor in that? Meanwhile, down in Florida, the Miami Marlins are 25th in baseball in home runs at their park, yet their pitching staff is 21st in baseball in home ERA. What can we make of that?
In both these instances, the early returns on how Citi Field and Marlins Park are playing yield surprising results which could offer the astute fantasy gamer an edge down the stretch.
