The Mets are going to some serious lengths to create some offense—or maybe, more modest lengths? In any case, right field fence is being moved in anywhere from 3 to 11 feet for next season. And General Manager Sandy Alderson thinks it’ll help the hitters psychologically as they swing for the fences. The Post reports that the new dimensions would mean 17 more Mets home runs last year, based on where balls landed.

Winter arrives at 12:11 PM Eastern Time this Saturday, and it will last for three long months. Spring doesn’t arrive until March 20th at 12:57 PM Eastern Time. We’re all familiar with the phrase the winter blues, but how do you get through the dark, cold months without getting the doldrums? On this week’s Cityscape, we’re looking at ways to avoid letting the winter get the best of you. We’ll be talking with a clinical psychiatrist about ways to beat “cabin fever,” as well as simply searching out fun things to do to get your mind off the cold.
