I liked the RF wall better before last season when they cut it down and installed a railing. Other than that I'd leave it alone

Well it could cut down cheap homers.But i do see one problem. If the ball hits deep to center field Adam Jones might misjudge it and could become inside the park homer. But if the O's hit it deep to center and our opponents misjudge it our fans would go nuts on inside the park homer. I love watching those! Cause when you hit it deep and the runner is rounding the bases you cheer for him to go home just like watching an horse race.

Or then again he won't misjudge it and make a fabulous catch as he usually does.

I think so to. Did you think I was comparing Adam Jones to Willie Mays? I can't find anywhere that I compared Adam Jones to anyone.

Hell no!!! Leave it the way it is. Camden Yards is unique and I'm against changing anything about the dimensions.

Camden yards can hurt pitching the way it is. Its because that warehouse blocking the wind the way the ball travels. Look at Memorial Stadium when batter hits the ball it goes up and dives down. At camden yards it takes off like a rocket.

Camden Yards is the prettiest ballpark in Major League Baseball. Leave it the way it is for another 20 years.

It may be pretty. But its killing our pitchers. Gotta think about our O's succeeding on winning championships like they used to do at Memorial Stadium. Think about the team rather how the park looks
