Idle thought re: TBIA, the Gold Club, and all that

So the Rangers had a wind analysis done of TBIA, are looking at ways to make TBIA less hitter-friendly, the media is talking about ripping out the Gold Club...

And it occurs to me...the Rockies have been doing the humidor thing for the baseballs they are using at Coors Field. And it seems to be working quite well.

If the Rangers are concerned about all the homers at TBIA and how far the ball carries, why not do the same thing here? Why not start putting the game balls in a humidor before games, like the Rockies do?

Wouldn't that be a lot cheaper, simpler, and easier than re-working the park, moving the fences, ripping out the Gold Club, and all that?
