Has Anyone Seen a a New Photo of CF at MMP?

The above is a summer of 2015 artist rendering of how things are supposed to look at MMP in Houston after the removal of Tall's Hill, but how does it actually look now in December 2016?

Has Anyone Seen a a New Photo of CF at MMP? We’re not talking about an earlier pre-reconstruction artistic rendering, but an up-to-date photo of how things look now in December 2016? We are still trying to get our bearings on how things are going to look for batters in 2017. The above featured “rendering” from the summer of 2015 never quite seems to clarify the question for these eyes. Things always look slightly askew to the left to these tired, searching eyes.

At any rate, given the offensive lineup that GM Jeff Luhnow has put together for the 2017 Astros, the blessing  of the new probable “bandbox” configuration is going to be a major stomp upon the Conoco HR Geiger counter in left center field for the home town boys. Correspondingly, if the club goes into the 2017 season with all the starting and relieving pitcher issues they now have, and doesn’t sacrifice Alex Bregman in a trade to answer some of the pitching needs, the obvious curse side of the new configuration is that our guys have to pitch in the re-configured ballpark too.

It should be an interesting new season, one with very few final scores of 1-0 or 2-1.

If you do have a photo of how things now look at MMP in December 2016 from the batter’s perspective, please post it here – or email attach it to me at houston.buff37@gmail.com. It would be very much appreciated.

Thanks – and have a nice chilly Houston weekend at the malls.

Addendum. Friend and fellow researcher Darrell Pittman just checked in with the answer. Here’s a photo that Mike Acosta of the Astros posted on Twitter a couple of days ago with the following comments:

 

Yep, things are under reconstruction at Minute Maid Park all right, but this recent photo from what appears to be the left field Crawford Boxes does nothing to help clarify what the batter’s going to see in dead center from home plate once everything is finished. Guess we need to go back to staring out the window and waiting for spring for the best answer to this one.
