More about Wrigley Field

Chicago and Wrigley are home to some of the more extreme weather variations in the country. Of course, the big one is wind. Especially during the first couple months of the season, Wrigley Field can wreak havoc to the simplest of fly balls. The irony is the very next day the wind could switch direction and instantly switch from a pitcher's to hitter's park. So, of all the stadiums in the bigs, Wrigley is the biggest wild card. If you have at least one starting pitcher in the Cubs rotation, it's almost mandatory to check the forecast before you pull the trigger.

Statistically, Wrigley Field ranks in the top three in wind (blowing in and out) and humidity. It also one of the colder parks in general. Put all that together and you get a park that's skewed towards pitchers, on average. That's after combining all the extreme days. For fantasy baseball purposes, the best way to play Wrigley is day-by-day. Check on the wind before you set your lineups... unless you want an unwanted surprise.
