CHICAGO If youve been following along with tonights forecast for World Series Game 3 at all, youve probably heard the wind is supposed to be blowing strongly out at Wrigley Field.Thatcould make things interesting in a series that featured two blowouts in its opening two games.MORE: Most unlikely World Series heroes, now including Roberto Perez Lets just say the over/under for this game wont be on the low end of the spectrum. Heres a glimpse, from a person who should know:Based on speed and direction of wind, a baseball hit at Wrigley tonight could splash into Lake Michigan. No, not really. #LaunchingPad pic.twitter.com/vaB8nW4roy Ryan Maue (@RyanMaue) October 28, 2016 Yeah.So, the Cubs have to be pretty happy they have Kyle Hendricks on the mound.In 4 Gs at Wrigley with wind blowing out, #Cubs Hendricks has 1.86 ERA (6 ER/29 IP, 34 Ks). That includes shutout 5/28, wind 18 mph to CF Carrie Muskat (@CarrieMuskat) October 28, 2016 Of the four starters who made the playoff rotation for manager Joe Maddons club, Hendricks gave up the fewest number of home runs (15); John Lackey allowed 23, Jon Lester allowed 21 and Jake Arrieta gave up 16. Hendricks also had the best HR/FB ratio, at 9.3 Brewers Womens Plus Size Jersey[/url] percent, according to FanGraphs.com . He was followed by Arrieta (11.1 percent), Lester (12.2) and Lackey (12.9).MORE: Why Josh Tomlin has no trouble with the curve Sporting News stats guru Alex Novick offered up a deeper dive into what opposing hitters did against Hendricks this year. The right-hander faced 745 batters during the regular season. 263 hit fly balls260 hit ground balls170 struck out44 walked8 hit by a pitchThe biggest problem on a night when the wind is blowing out is regular fly balls, not line drives. Regularfly balls can get carried out by the wind remember Andre Ethiers home run off Jon Lester in Game 1 of the NLCS, at Wrigley? much easier than a line drive.Of the four starters, Arrieta has the lowest fly-ball percentage (27.9 percent), followed by Hendricks (31.3 percent), Lester (32.8 percent) and Lackey (36.3).MORE: 12 players with unfortunate postseason records Heres a spray chart of the balls put into play against Hendricks: Pretty evenly distributed, right? Here are the raw numbers:178 total balls hit to left side192 total balls hit to center153 [url=https://www.fansmbrewers.com/lorenzo-cain-6-milwaukee-brewers-majestic-youth-home-cool-base-replica-player-white-jersey-p-585.html]Lorenzo Cain Youth White Jersey[/url] total balls hit to right side53 fly balls to left side61 fly balls to center47 fly balls to right side 87 ground balls to left side (15 ground-ball hits to left side)86 ground balls to center (11 ground-ball hits to center)76 ground balls to right side (14 ground-ball hits to right side)35 line drives to left side42 line drives to center27 line drives to right sideSo, the numbers say Hendricks should be as well-suited as any Chicago starter to deal with the conditions in Game 3. As for what will happen, who knows?Nobody thought Cleveland catcher Roberto Perez would hit two Game 1 homers or that Kyle Schwarber would return from a six-month layoff to be an impact bat in the middle of Chicagos lineup.MORE: Odd bit of history going on in Wrigley for Game 3 What we do know is Hendricks wont get rushed and rattled if a fly ball sneaks over the wall.I've only known him for two years now, but I've never seen him rush through anything, Maddon said during Thursdays media-day se sion. I'm sure he takes time brushing his teeth. I [url=https://www.fansmbrewers.com/milwaukee-brewers-majestic-alternate-flex-base-authentic-collection-custom-whiteroyal-jersey-p-600.html]Brewers Flex Base Custom White/Royal Jersey would imagine his cup of coffee takes two hours to drink. I mean, this guy is just, he just has this really and he's a good golfer. The great Walter Hagen on the day that he played, he slowed on everything that he does. I would bet that he has the slowest back swing in history. He is just that guy, he's that guy.And thats why the Cubs should feel good with that guy on the mound.
