    For the most part, the forecast looks better now than it did this morning… though it’s not perfect:

    ARI @ WASH – Forecast models continue to advertise some storm potential at least near D.C., National Weather Service continues to dismiss that threat, and I’m inclined to agree with them. Play ball. GREEN / YELLOW

    CHC @ PIT – Cluster of storms surrounding PIT as I write this, but it’s all clearing east. Those showers/storms should be cleared or clearing by first pitch, making a late start possible, but a mid-inning delay less likely. Back behind this initial batch of storms the overall storm coverage is very isolated, so while we could get unlucky and one storm could wander over the stadium later, that seems pretty unlikely. It’s not perfect, but your probability of getting in a clean game (not including a potential late start) looks pretty good, and if you like a pitching match-up here, the weather odds are in your favor. YELLOW / GREEN

    SF @ ATL – Maybe a stray isolated storm within 50 miles of the stadium, even that looks pretty unlikely now. GREEN

    SEA @ COL – A couple months ago this pattern was almost routine, scattered showers and storms through the evening hours in COL. Radar is currently unimpressive, but there’s still plenty of time to see storms pop/strengthen. The HRRR forecast model has this as a split system, one arriving early in the game (potentially causing a late start), then clearing out with, another batch much later in the night. I think trying to pinpoint timing on rain or clearing might be ambitious at this point. COL has shown good patience in the past with a similar set-up, so I’ll put this at YELLOW ) / ORANGE (that means leaning towards YELLOW . I think a delay is probable, with a PPD possible but not likely. This game will more than likely play, but your are definitely taking at least some risk if you roster players in this game.

    Please follow and share my updates on twitter (@KevinRothWx), and check back here for any major changes.

    Happy Grinding,

    GREEN – Play ball!
    YELLOW – Delay possible.
    ORANGE – Delay likely, PPD possible.
    RED – Just say no.

    Does it ever not rain in Colorado?

  • 19massey89

    Coors so f’n annoying

  • triad9980

    Seriously Coors should have a retractable roof like like Safeco.

    Without a doubt the most annoying aspect of DFS

  • y2mulder

    Kevin is God, and I would never step on his toes. But living in the Denver metro…..the game should not be a problem tonight.

  • tommykarate

    rain delay in pitt

  • ObiWanBonogi

    Shame they didn’t just wait it out and start an hour late. Probably because ESPN was there.

    not the only one, 70 pct of people in a 50/50.

  • AtGame7

    Game on local TV says they will be resuming shortly, but who knows.

  • Joc31

    Liriano out of the game.

  • triad9980

    Wonderful Lester and Liriano both pulled in a game that never should have started when it did to begin with! That’s the end of all my DK teams for the night. I once again ask the question… Why can’t the billionaire baseball team owners add retractable roofs on to their stadiums?

  • johnnyjohnny848

    Ouch on the pitt forecast, happens to the best of em i guess lol. Looks like around 65% had liriano too.

  • golflovin37

    Yeah. Very shitty. They need to put their big boy pants on and get out there and pitch. Pitchers are absolutely babied these days.

    Unreal on PITT game. Announcers said, “Wow, this is really strange; the radar we’re pulling up shows no rain, but it sure as heck is raining. This won’t be long, folks, should be a short one.”

  • johnnyjohnny848

    Dang the game even got ppd no points for any players there now.

  • Majorrock

    any hint of orange and i avoid….learned that the hard way. Sometimes it works against me but atleast this way i have a chance of another pitcher actually contributing to the cause

    There wasn’t a hint of orange though

  • MooknGradyzfranchize

    The worst is neither pitcher got their 10 points that they
    Earned which would have helped. Especially rostering both of
    Them! Huge mistake

  • djcarr

    Green/Yellow PPD. Ouch.

  • tbishop8

    What happened was exactly what he warned about, you can’t get mad about that. He clearly says, “we could get unlucky” though a PPD is unlikely, therefor you knew the risk you were taking

  • lunaland

    tbs but if you gonna pull a quote from his post then don’t forget this one
    “but your probability of getting in a clean game (not including a potential late start) looks pretty good, and if you like a pitching match-up here, the weather odds are in your favor.”
