Should the Mets have built a home run friendly park to sell tickets?

Interesting take here that suggests the Mets should have built a smaller park. Chicks dig the long-ball, not 2-1 games, right?

As you may have picked up, I’m a traditionalist, and the Mets have won in the past with pitching.  I like the idea of a big park, and Omar keeps saying “pitching and defense” but went out and signed NO pitching and a power hitting low-range left fielder.  Makes sense to me.

Meanwhile, when I’m reading headlines like “Starting catcher: Omir Santos or Henry Blanco” I start to wonder if I have traveled back in time.  Might as well ask me “Starting catcher: Alex Trevino or Ron Hodges?”  At least Hodges had his number retired.Bored with Sports Talk Radio?
