Pagan regarded that theory as a bunch of hot air.
"The only way they can find out is if they play there. And I don't think so," Pagan said Monday. "AT&T Park is a ballpark where the wind goes in circles. The flags could be blowing straight out, but inside the ballpark it's circular."
Manager Bruce Bochy agreed with Pagan.
"I can't say I've noticed," Bochy said. "We've hit a couple of balls that I thought would carry farther and they didn't. I think if you give it more games, I'll tell you for sure."
