"Any time you talk to a hitter about making a park more hitter-friendly, it's a thing that we're all for," Wright said. "I very briefly looked at the pictures and those dimensions and everything. It just looks, obviously, fair."
Asked what would particularly benefit him, Wright said: "I'd like to think that I'm pretty good at going gap to gap. One of my biggest strengths, I think, is going the other way into right-center field. Hopefully this will help me with one of my strengths."
Did the original Citi Field dimensions intimidate the Mets?
"You'd be lying if you said you enjoyed hitting at Citi Field," Wright said. "I don't think anybody would say they enjoyed hitting in such a pitchers' ballpark. I don't think we ever looked at the field and it intimidated us. But obviously it's frustrating at times when you hit a ball good and you don't see the results that you want to see."
