    Pleased with how the early slate went, and now we get to try to close out strong…

    CWS @ BAL – We have plenty of rain around the Mid-Atlantic, heavier rain just north of Philly, heavier rain just of DC… but nothing that is really on target with Baltimore. Looking farther upstream we do have a few isolated storms moving in that general direction, and the HRRR forecast model does bring in some rain around the end of the game, but it’s debatable if that rain ever makes it in to BAL in time to cause issues. It’s not great baseball weather, but it’s more clouds than rain, and I think we look good to play. There’s a chance we have to play through some very light showers, and a chance for a delay (likely later innings if at all), but there’s nothing truly threatening knocking on the doorstep. YELLOW .

    A note on temps – Temperatures in the BAL and BOS games will be on the cool side, with game-time temps likely in the 40s. It’s not life-changing, but cold air is dense air, so the ball won’t fly quite as far as if the game was being played with temps in the 70s. For a look at hourly temps for all games, check out the “MLB Weather with Kevin Roth” page, under the Daily Research tab.

    I’ll likely be posting some radar images to Twitter, @KevinRothWX, so follow along there for the full experience.

    Happy Grinding,
    Kevin

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

    Fudge indeed

    LOL, 4 games on the early slate, all yellow/orange. The big winner will be the guy who predicts the weather best, not the best players.

    The big winner last night had Chris Tillman and Aledmys Diaz so I would go far as to say it isn’t even always who takes the “best” players…

    I like how you defined “intermittent” for us.

    Get the “Weather Express” app for your phone. Way better forecasts city by city.

    Just withdrew from my early slate games. Thanks Kevin for the info.

    I’m about 20 mins south of Coors Field. Light snow….

    Just to be clear, I don’t think the forecast in DET or CHI looks all that bad (pitcher seems more risky). The morning skate is usually a bit on the cautious side, because I know I can’t radar watch the entire time, plus CHC radar is nearly dead quiet at the moment.

    That’s what I thought having a look over things, Kevin. Was focusing on Intellicast and it doesn’t look too bad. Denver is a different story, and maybe we can get away with rosters for 3 out of the 4 early ones.

    Looking at CHI radar there doesn’t seem to be much concern going forward, yet forecast calls for additional rain, are they expecting pop-up storms?

    I hear they will be hit and miss, intermittent, but nothing too bad.

    I’m 25 Min West of Detroit and it just started Raining again here. Very chilly out today

  • dailyfdlineups

    This should be a fun guessing game.

  • ComicFx

    Some light snow/rain few miles north of Coors Field. I’d fade in cash, play in GPP, but its cold here.

    Is that the one that said the rain was clearing in Chicago last night and it was good to go?

    PIT @ COL PPD

  • tommykarate

    Thank you Roth — shocking how many people (who i assume dont follow you) rostered players in Col/Pitt in cash games.
