Default His starts since Chicago have been on the road

So it is not the Knight's band box that is doing him in....

randy already has an era over 4 and he pitches in yankee stadium, one of the parks with the biggest outfield gaps, like 399 or somethin like that

Just like most of the parks in the MLB, including our own.

IIRC The power alleys at Charlotte are something in the 340 range, which is a joke with proffesional hitters

Before anyone condemns him for getting killed by Texas, you have to realize GARLAND got hammered harder by the same team.

Put Barry Bonds in that place and he hits at least 100 Home Runs. That's without steroids to.

Thats true, but I use his start at Wrigley as a big measuring stick of his potential. Even in a relatively good outing numbers-wise, he pitched 5.2(?) innings and got exactly one ground ball out out of 17. Not only that, the one groundball out was a bunt back to the pitcher. That type of pitching does not translate into success at the major league level, and surprise surprise, he gives up 4 home runs to a solid offensive team like Texas. For BMac to have success in the majors he not only has to work on his stuff and build some body mass, he also has to learn how to pitch effectively. I wouldn't cry about trading him right now, as I believe his stock may be higher at this point than it ever will be in the future. If we don't trade him, I look forward to seeing if he will mature into the type of pitcher that I'd love to see him be.

Only by first glance. There is a 6-10 foot gap between the actual top of the wall and the advertisement boards that sit behind them, and HR's hitting the raised Ad boards or going between the wall are HR's. The Actual wall height is maybe a couple feet taller than USCF's...
