    Well, 89 rep points on only 4 posts. That's a pretty good slugging percentage.

    Re: Great American Ballpark is a "BandBox"?

    I wonder if the time of the season really affects the flight of the ball. Gullyfoil has done a bang-up job, maybe he can check out the months. Marth and Joe and George always mention that the balls travel further when the heat and humidity rise, which seems counter-intuitive to me.
    By the way, before Colorado had a team, Atlanta's old ball park was always mentioned as the homerun park, mostly because it was the highest elevation. Is that still holding true for the new park?

    And Wrigley is still the best NL home run park east of the Rockies, although it's not the launching pad it once was or, indeed, that its cross-town rival U.S. Cellular is now.
    The statement regarding Wrigley begs the question as to the reliability of the Park Factors. How can Wrigley be less of a launching pad but for improved pitching? There have been no configuration changes, so that only leaves a meterological explanation, such as the wind doesn't blow out like it used to. In short, it would seem that the above statement would have nothing to do with the ballpark.

    You must have a minimum of 200 rep. points (in addition to some basic minimum posts and registration requirements) before you can post at the ORG and give rep. points to others. For bandwidth purposes, avatars are restricted to those in this category, but that's the only "perk".

    There's this group, the About 10, or the Redszone 10, which is actually something like twenty people with really foul mouths and who seem to love Adam Dunn for some odd reason. They're the points masters. I've said too much, here they come!

    Congrats, Less than 24 hours and 5 posts on the board and you are setting at 115 pts. Over half way to ORG status!!! That's impressive. (but one has to wonder of the merits of the system, when someone can climb the ladder that fast. )

    I would agree, that this is a strange statement. As Garrett mentioned, it would be very interesting if there was a way to correlate weather trends with park factor... maybe there has been a change in winds, etc... or maybe he just misspoke... but there does seem to be a lot of variance in this stat. Unfortunately I am limited to stats that are free at the moment

    (and then I see the free trial of Baseball prospectus this week... Thanks Westofyou for not letting me get anything done!)
