Gaslamp Ball will occasionally provide endorsements and judgments in the world of baseball and beyond. Should Gaslamp Ballers need to cast a vote or require an official opinion, look for Gaslamp Ball Proclamations first to see what our official stance is. Thank you.
Gaslamp Ball officially believes that the Petco Park fences should be moved in for the primary reason of ending the bickering about whether or not the fences should be moved in.
While the fences are where they are, there is debate and angst among the Padre faithful in San Diego. This angst is not good for the chi. If the fences were to be moved, the fans who are for their movement will be placated and the fans who are against their being moved will not be foulweather enough to blame their movement on any of the Padres' future ill wills. Whether or not the fences have any effect on the game itself is irrelevant to this proclamation.
