Black favors moving in Petco's fences
SAN DIEGO -- Count Padres manager Bud Black among those in favor of moving the Petco Park fences in.

The Padres are considering modifying the dimensions of the pitcher's park to make it more hitter friendly. Opening in 2004, Petco Park ranked last among the 30 Major League ballparks in runs scored in four of its first six seasons, according to park factors. The ballpark ranked 28th among the 30 teams in 2011.

"It's a great discussion," Black said. "We've talked about it before. It's a good idea to talk about moving them in.

"I don't want to get into all the details of how far in from right-center and all that, but I'm in favor of moving the fences in."
