Autumn arrives in Chicago today.
High 58 Low 46
Gametime temp- 50
Winds- gusty NW winds exceeding 25 mph at times

OK...Where do gusty NW winds to 25mph blow to in Soxpark exactly?
I know they will be swirling but it seems right field will be the only homer possibility most likely...am I wrong?

We have Griffey and Thome that pull the ball ,mainly off right-handers like Blackburn. Wise and AJ can pop it out also.
Twins facing a lefty in Danks who they have hit hard have a bunch of lefty power in Morneau,Mauer,and Kubel.

It is going to be a hard nite to score with the conditions..a homer might be the diff if it is in the right direction.
The key is Johnny staying on the corners vs their big three...please no down the middle cookies, Johnny.

Big Jim and Jr. are vet lefty power hitters lusting for a ring...get'er done,boys.

If the wind is out of the NW, isn't that going to mean it's blowing out to center?

I would think the poor weather would favor the Sox, since the Twinkies play in 'perfect' conditions year round in the hermetically sealed bubble.

Yes, if the wind is blowing to the SE then it's going out to center.

Ok, I blew the whole wind directional impact deal...sounds like it will favor center or left...thats ok as we have JD,PK and Alexei going that way and their power is in their lefties....works for me.

It's like a scull hat. Think of the black thing Buehrle was wearing on his head at the World Series parade.

Just like the World Series in '05. Oh the memories. All we need is a bit of a drizzle.

Home plate is in the SW corner. Wind from the NW blows mostly to right. Thome, AJ, Griffey and Wise each hit taters!:tongue:

HP is in the NW corner. It's at 35th st, not 36th st...
