Should be a warm one. It's also supposed to be breezy. Does a SW wind indicate the wind blowing out?

Straight out to CF---I have a feeling there are going to be some dented ERAs tonight. The temperature is already hitting over 100F in Northern Iowa and Southwest MN, the intense heat is heading right in this direction---

Twins Promotion this evening?---Blanket Night!

A SW wind is blowing to LF not CF.

From HP to straight Center is Due East. North is the line from First to Third.

Also it looks like the Wind will be out of the West by game time and shifting to WNW by the end of the game. So in that aspect the wind will be to CF/Right Center for the game.

You're right. That's what I said, "straight to CF", right after looking at the weatherunderground forecast, sorry about the mix-up, I shorthanded my answer.

Sometimes I miss the good old days when the winds could be summoned by the flip of a switch:

I worked my arse off today, and because I made more progress on my landscaping project than I ever I imagined I would, my wife absolved me of attending a choir concert. I guess it helped that I broke a toe. It would be a perfect day if she were to come home and tell me we are going out to eat at a craft beer friendly joint.

de Aza watched that dribble half way up the first base line before remembering he should probably take off for first.

Since coming to the Sox, Peavey has pretty much owned the Twins. He's coming off an injury (back IIRC), let's see if the Twins can get some good swings against him.

Hammer is in the biggest funk of his Twins career. 4-36 with only two XBHs (doubles) since May 1.

This is going to be one of those games where the Sox will hit a couple solo homers, and we will fart around until Peavy is gone, then have a big inning.
