Jason Bay can't hit homeruns anywhere.

I have been thinking a lot about Citi Field's new dimensions lately and how it will affect the team. A lot has been said about how this will help Wright and Bay hot more home runs and frankly, I am not convinced. Specifically with Jason Bay. I am sure that a shorter fence will get him an extra homer or two but for the most part I don't think Citi Field has made a demonstrable difference to him at all. You can see this in his home/away HR splits:

Home HR
Away HR

As you can see his HR numbers are the exact same in Citi Field as they are in all other parks. Obviously he hit so few home runs that this could just be a coincidence but it does show that his problem lies with his swing, his health, his mind or something else but not with Citi Field's dimensions
