Nicholas Castellanos Calls Comerica\'s Center Field \'A Joke\' 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Jul 23, 2019 11:40 am

Nicholas Castellanos says he\'s missing out on a lot of home runs due to playing at Comerica Park.

\"This park\'s a joke. It\'s to the point where, how are we going to be compared to the rest of the people in the league for power numbers, OPS, slugging and all this stuff when we got a yard out here that\'s 420 feet straight across in center field?\" Castellanos said.

He hit a walk-off home run against the Toronto Blue Jays to snap a six-game losing streak on Sunday. The 372-foot home run (hit to left field) in the bottom of the 10th to give the Detroit Tigers just their 13th win at home this season.

Castellanos led baseball in triples in 2017 and leads in doubles with 34 this season, a fact he owes to Comerica\'s cavernous center field.

\"We get on second base or third base, and they\'re looking, like, \'Man, how do you guys do this?\' We play 81 games here. I don\'t want to hear about your two that you hit that are questionable,\" said Castellanos, who is slashing .284/.342/.480 this year.

\"Move in center field, right center, there is no reason that I hit a ball 434 off [Washington Nationals right-hander] Anibal Sanchez and it goes in the first row, that shouldn\'t happen.\"
