1. The Walls Are Closing In
According to Mets General Manager Sandy Alderson, Citi Field's outfield walls will be moved in for the 2012 season. Why? Well, in the three years since Citi Field opened its doors, the Mets are one game over .500 at home, compared to 35 over .500 in the three previous years. Also, David Wright has just 53 home runs in the past three seasons compared to 89 in the three years before that. Shall I go on or is this blurb getting a little long?

4. Flair For The Dramatic
