Thats because its a very good home run park when the wind is blowing out. Didn't I state that? When the wind roars in off the lake, it is very hard to hit home runs there. When it blows out towards the lake, the balls fly out of there.

What does it matter which way the wind is blowing....the park rankings are throughout the whole season, thus the wind direction doesn't matter.

Don't take that as a Cub insult though, because I think I'd take Zambrano over Hudson this year. I expect Hudson to have a good year, but I'm willing to take the risk with Zambrano. I say risk, because, he is extremely young and is obviously overworked. He's the type of guy who it's OK to take the risk on though.

While I love Zambrano, I got to give this one to Hudson. Zambrano might have a little more upside, but I view Hudson as a virtually no risk pitcher and those are hard to come by.

You forgot Juan Cruz - provides alot of versatility and is a damn good pitcher.
