Frenchy pops off on Citi Field
Citi Field can be death on right-handed hitters, as Jeff Francoeur knows better than anyone. In New York this week to play the Yankees as a member of the Royals, Francoeur criticized the field to the New York Post. Among his thoughts:
“Poor David [Wright] hits the ball to right-center so well and there it’s an out,” Francoeur told the Post. “To me, you start trying to pull the ball and getting into habits. And I know it’s frustrating for David playing in that park.
“They’ve gotta shorten the park up. It’s huge. I’m not saying make it a bandbox like Philadelphia, but they have to do something.”
