Quick Thought About the Winds on Jupiter...

We all know the story by now:  The Cards' are struggling with the bats but the pitchers look great.  

Could it be that the wind in Jupiter is just as responsible for the Pitchers' low ERA as it is for the Hitters' low AVG & SLG?

Just a thought.  But it seems to have some credibility.  I guess one way to tell would be to look at our starting pitchers' GB/FB ratio but I'm not sure where to find that information for Spring Training.  The assumption here is that flyballs would have more likelihood to travel further for extra base hits (more doubles, homeruns, etc.) while ground balls would be largely unaffected by the winds.

Had the Cards' pitchers been pitching in Arizona (or St. Louis), would we all be as content with their numbers?
