  1. Not only did Bonds not homer at Coors in the homerest day in earth’s history – he didn’t even get walked.

  2. Actually, there were 6HR hit at Fenway last night.

  3. Scratch that, he did get walked once. But the Giants scored 18 runs without a Bonds homer.

  4. Fixed. And thanks.

  5. Including a home run cycle by the Red Sox.

  6. Thanks for trying to class up my state, Wendy.

  7. That was supposed to include a block reference to “University of Illinois-Champagne.” Forgive me, I’m bad at the internet.

  8. I thought I doubled checked the spelling, but apparently not. Thanks for the catch, and fixed.

  9. We also intuitively believe that Tim McCarver doesn’t know what he’s talking about most of the time. And it’s true.

  10. My fantasy team will remember yesterday. 5 HR in the first 15 AB

  11. I think you fixed the wrong game?

  12. It was 74 degrees in Atlanta and 75 in Dallas in July?

  13. Wendy Thurm is from the future, where beanballs count as grand slams.

  14. How tough would it be to simply plot what % of balls go for home runs at what temperature? Has this been done somewhere?

  15. Hot dogs cost 2 silver, and global cooling keeps the temperature in the 70′s in summertime.

  16. Yes, it would be interesting to see if someone has plotted all of these weather-related factors.
    We also know that very humid air causes the ball to fly further–lighter water molecules displace diatomic molecules of oxygen–and that high pressure should depress home runs slightly also.
    Combine the three factors: heat, humidity and high pressure vs. low pressure.
    Surely, someone has looked into this.

  17. My understanding of humidity was that humid, heavy air hinders the ball rising in the first place, thereby holds down distance (and so home runs).
