    This is what I referred to. The wind impact is anecdotal and not based on any measurements.

    http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/baseball/cubs/ct-spt-cubs-windy-wrigley-field-sullivan-20180428-story.html

    I would expect the scoreboards not change much, the direction and push behind the ball should carry right up toward the scoreboard, a few feet from which the impact might die off. Think about other wind tunnel studies you may have seen. There would be high pressure in the push any edge as the wind sheers off at the screen-face. In specific spots, you might see increased pressure to carry the ball sideways (or down), but again this would be within a few feet of the screen I expect. I’m surmising here, obviously.

    No MILW? Bomb Finnegan!

  • Semaj89

    My boy Seager out for the year.

    Blessing in disguise, now we can trade for Machado with no qualms.

  • hcassidy

    Its a DiDi and Braun night!

    $2, 20 max entry, good top prize of $5k, and 2x min cash? Thats perfect. Well done dk. I’d prefer a bit of a redoing of top 10 so it was like 3500 to first and more to 2-10th, but thats fine

    Let’s take this to Wrigley and test it out! :D

    FD UTIL spot…
    CJ Cron or Nick Castellanos?

    I’m going Cron, but curious if anyone disagrees :)

    edit:
    Cron vs Zimmermann who sucks ass, and so does his pen. But Cron prefers the other side of the platoon.
    Castellanos vs Faria who allows huge HC% and low GB% vs RHBs, and also with a below avg pen, yet Nick is lower in the order.

    I have cron in a until spot. Cast is a good play as well.

    Edit… I feel like tb1 puts up runs tonight and nobody will be there. Love the cron span mini stack.

    $2 2x min cash isn’t gonna fill which is a head scratcher. Needs to be promoted more

  • biga0787

    It is way too easy to get arrieta/Morton and a Rockies stack

    Cron, think I have him locked in as well, just my hiccup he is batting 2nd

  • eatmyturf23

    Great, I’m with the herd then. Maybe I should switch to NC. :P (nah, I’m sticking with Cron)

  • Joeyrockland1

    Good luck all

  • Kuchhhh86

    I guess targeting against the Dodgers is still a good idea. Still don’t know what is happening to them.

  • marker0357

    gonna be a long night for Lester if he can’t find the damn plate

  • eatmyturf23

    Unsurprising to see Baez and Bryant 35-40% owned in an FD Small Bunt gpp.

    Ryan Braun 46% lol.

    I am surprised to see $2.0k Matt Adams at only 8%, he’s a min-priced punt with power (Taillon is a groundballer but still).

    Also, CJ Cron 6% (yay).

  • eatmyturf23

    Ha, Cain just stole second on left-handed pitcher Finnegan. That’s pretty bad, he has full view of Cain as a lefty.

    This was a tie-breaker for me to remove Cain, oh well. (!@#$)

  • KindGuy

    Okay, I know I said this before but after today, I am DONE with Yelich. Dude is the most overrated player in the league. Ugh!!!!!

  • roach62

    Rodriguez…not good start so far my man…lol

  • 866

    This FN Rodriguez folds already. Bases Load vs anemic KC team. Annoyed.

  • feezyg
