Trouble in one spot, wind in others, here’s the highlights of my forecast work:
CLE @ CWS – Rain here isn’t a legit concern, 10% chance of seeing a sprinkle, but we could play right through anything that falls. The more interesting story here is the sustained wind at 15-20 mph, with wind gusts around 30!!! Sounds juicy, right? Well, the winds are cutting across the field, not blowing out, not blowing in… so I have that as a wash, I don’t really see it benefiting the pitcher or the hitter. Awesome wind… wasted :/ GREEN.
NYY @ DET – Windy again…. crosswind again. Double-whammy. GREEN.
CHC @ PITT – There’s a line of showers that has to move through the area before this game can play, but it’s been weakening, and I think it continues to do so. It’s ugly, but it shouldn’t be ugly enough to postpone. Late start or delay(s) possible, so rolling with a pitcher in this one seems a bit risky. YELLOW/ORANGE… but leaning pretty strongly towards the YELLOW side.
That’s all for today, hit me up on twitter (@KevinRothWx) for a cornucopia of weather information and DFS fun. As always, it’s just a forecast, not a promise…
Happy Grinding everyone! – Kevin
