    UPDATE TO CHI GAMES – Light rain is falling over and around Chi, but we should be able to play through it. The bigger concern is the ugly rain mass southwest of CHI that could arrive late, this would bring heavier rain. Models have it tracking very close to or just south of Chicago. I still think the majority (if not all) of this game plays OK, but that 2nd rain shield could cause enough problems for me to keep this as YELLOW (with a hint of ORANGE).

    Thanks for all the kind words on the AM post, now let’s get into another tricky forecast tonight:


    OAK @ NYY – Rain around now, but it will slowly clear and dry up. YELLOW for late start potential.

    SD @ PIT- Light rain on the way, but juuuust as it arrives, it should be eroding. 2 different forecast models have this system drying out just as it reaches PIT. GREEN/ YELLOW.

    HOU @ CLE – Same situation as Pit game, radar looks impressive now, and showers are on the way, but they should also start to fade just as they arrive. GREEN/ YELLOW.

    MIA @ BOS – Rain and storms stay just south. GREEN (tiny hint of yellow).

    ARI @ TEX – Line of storms we’ve seen all day in North Texas is mostly dry and gone, the lingering showers will continue to fade through tonight. GREEN (tiny hint of yellow).

    STL @ CHC – Light rain is falling over and around Chi, but we should be able to play through it. The bigger concern is the ugly rain mass southwest of CHI that could arrive late, this would bring heavier rain. Models have it tracking very close to or just south of Chicago. I still think the majority (if not all) of this game plays OK, but that 2nd rain shield could cause enough problems for me to keep this as YELLOW (with a hint of ORANGE.

    TB @ KC – Light showers are cleared. GREEN.

    TOR @ CWS – Same as CHC game. YELLOW/ ORANGE.

    LAA @ COL – It’s a LOT like last night. It’s moderate rainfall all across Colorado, currently including Denver. That rain will slowly fade, but models do hold on to it for a decent amount of time. Last night the rain faded a solid 2+ hours before models predicted, and we could very well see that again. For now I think it likely will play, but I have to keep at least some low PPD risk in, in case one of these heavy showers sits over the stadium through the night. YELLOW (with a hint of ORANGE). Do with this info as you will, don’t tweet me about it the next morning :)

    That’s all for now, stick with me on Twitter (@KevinRothWx) for updates and radar images.

    I know 99.9% of you are really truly appreciative of myself and RG for the weather work, so a sincere thank you goes out to all of you.

    Happy Grinding, I’ll hop back on as updates are needed,

    Keep on doing what you’re doing Kevin! don’t mind the cry babies.

  • cmac17554

    They have to blame someone when they lose. You will win though Kevin because guess what? After you block them on twitter they will be scrambling trying to find YOUR forecast because it is the best and most reliable there is. If they can’t comprehend what they are reading, well that’s their problem.
    Thanks for all of your hard work!

    Honestly Kevin, your addition to RG’s has been HUGE for me personally and there are countless (silent) others who feel the same. Trust that 99% of the population appreciates your hard work and amazingly accurate forecasts. As for the haters, Cal above me says it best. Several friends of mine “sell” or market their picks and are routinely accused of manipulating them for their own benefit. In other words, they’re accused of deliberately tanking their own steady business/name in order to squeeze out a tiny bit of % owned benefit in their favor. Lol, I mean, that’s literally insane! But again, please know this is a TINY segment of the population. Many of these people will never get it so just accept that you’ll hear from them again. Eventually it will become comical, but I understand the initial frustration. Bottom line, the overwhelming majority is quietly grateful for your work. Thanks!

    Kevin, you screwed nobody. Thank you for all of the time and effort you put into your posts. I truly appreciate all of your hard work! Keep up the good work.

    haters gonna hate and ain’ters gonna ain’t

  • ducksticks

    Re: Rant……….You’re the best Kev, The Best source of info for game weather, slam dunk, period. The only bad news is that these current crybabies won’t go away, they’ll still hinge on your every forecast. So don’t give the whack jobs (1-3% of all) a second thought. They will never do anything but snivel, it’s the nature of a few.

    @KevinRothWx….you do a great job and speaking for most of the DFS community, you give insight into what most of us know nothing about and that is weather which is a big thing in DFS baseball as you know. I just want to say thank you for your detailed and spot on reports for us and don’t let the negative people get to you. Just like the people who bitch about the pros giving plays….we play with our own money and at the end of the day, we need to make a decision for ourselves and use the weather as a helpful idea of where to go and stay away from. Great job as always!

    Best reaction to those that complain about free info was uttered by Brick Top, from Snatch…

    “Listen, you f***ing fringe, if I throw a dog a bone, I don’t want to know if it tastes good or not. You stop me again whilst I’m walking, and I’ll cut your f***ing Jacobs off.”

    Nuff Said!

    The fact that it took this long for you to receive enough Tweets to make a post like this is perhaps the strongest testament to the accuracy/value of your content.

    This. Roth is the GOAT.

  • ekposse

    Great job, dude. Keep it up.

  • ballerzzz

    You are by far the most important man on roto grinders. Don’t change a thing and haters will be haters. tell them to get out their mom’s basement and figure out the weather themselves. I’m sure they think they are better at forecasting!!!!! YOU DA MAN

  • jpligon75

    You are a HUUUUUUUGE benefit to the DFS community. And you are appreciated by the true DFS players. Thank you for ALL you do and the time you take to do it.

  • mtp8904

    Can’t thank you enough for what you do!

  • Oakwalds3

    Only an idiot would complain about your free service. Thank you!

  • Fortyoz40

    Thanks for the weather forecast you provide for (FREE)

    I really appreciate all your insight.

  • mrchuffy

    Thanks for all you do Roth! Don’t listen to all the haters, people always try to place blame on others for their shitty decisions.

    Please don’t let the haters get to you. You’re the man! Thanks for all you do for RG members.

    Anyone who would complain about a free forecast that is about 99% accurate is a degenerate loser and simply upset they are just not very good at DFS. Thank you for the insight you provide us every day!

    Don’t sell Kevin short. He’s way more accurate than 99%. By the way Kevin, thanks for the tweets updating the status. I fired off my Angles stack just before lock $$$$$$$$$$ You da man Kev

    Roth, you are undoubtedly the best at what you do and are much appreciated by me and I’d say almost all of the RG community. There are always going to be “those people” who, if you really think about it, are essentially morons. I mean, seriously, anyone who would send you a shitty tweet about your forecasts has absolutely zero clue.

  • rsvoboda25

    Ur the man sorry about all idiots who tried to blame you for there decisions. Especially if the opposite happened they would be happy n another group would bitch. And you gave an update those people probably missed it how is tht ur fault lol. It’s weather impossible to be 100% accurate and ur damn close to that. Keep it up! You n tom skilling are best n business
