Speaking of weather, ballparks and the baseball playoffs (see below) there will be at least one game played at Wrigley Field. And you know what that means: Wind. Most likely wind will blow at Wrigley – and so will the Cubs -- but the bigger question is which direction. Dusty Baker appeared on Colin Cowherd's ESPN Radio show today talking about how the wind factors into almost every game at Wrigley. Baker didn't really say anything we didn't already know, but he did say that if the wind blows out or across the field, it's in the Cubs favor since they have the bigger bats. However, Arizona, which has a two-game lead and could sweep the short series with a win Saturday, has the advantage with the wind blowing in because of its superior pitching and defense.
