Didn't read the whole thing but opponents (while still well below league avg) are significantly out-hitting the Mets at Citi. So this is mostly about the Mets. Their IFFB rate is astronomical at home. In fact, the inversion of their IFFB rate and HR/FB rates at home vs. on the road prob explain what's going on.

For six straight years though?

I would be interested in seeing what the opposing team's BABIP is vs. the Mets at Citi Field compared to what it is when the Mets are on the road. I didn't see that data in the article. That would help determine whether the issue is with the team or the ballpark.

Mets bip avg at Citi: .263
Mets bip road: .305
Opponents bip at Citi: .288
Opponents bip road: .312

Differences have a lot to do with FB rates. Mets seem to be trying to tailor their approach to their park, which they evidently perceive as friendly to LHed power after the fence was brought in...whether that approach is specifically by design or not, we can only speculate. On the road,you can see their FB rate go down (and bip avg go up).

The answer is obvious. God's a Yankee fan.

For what it's worth Jeff Sullivan does not agree with you
