That was an image from just after 11:00 am, and, as we all know, the winds can change quickly and dramatically at Wrigley Field, but yeesh.

Fortunately, despite Jose Quintana’s struggles/inconsistency this season, he is posting the highest ground ball rate he’s had since 2015 and the second highest since becoming a full-time starter in 2012. Keeping the ball on the ground (or striking guys out) will be the key to today’s game.

Speaking of which …

Like I said, get that ball up, righties.
