Odds of tonight’s game being rained out?

Recommended Posts

I’ve driven all the way down here from Indiana and I have to return tomorrow. 

I really want to see this game tonight before I have to leave to head back home tomorrow morning, obviously. 

What do you guys think, rained out or nah?

Rain is supposed to stop around 8 pm.   The field drains well.  There may be a delay for a few hours and the game may go late into the night but if it holds to the weather report they should get it in.  Bundle up its going to be cool.

Please tell me you drove here for more than just a baseball game.

If Nicole Sherry stays, "No go!" do the conspiracy theorists say two games on Saturday help the pitching concerns of the last place Orioles?  🤩

Doesn't look too good based on what I see.... hopefully it blows through sooner but it almost definitely won't start on time.

When's your tee time?  Is the little one hitting wiffle balls yet?  Have come within one of shooting my now senior age (77) each of the last few years - can't finish!  Still carry for nine but I'm eroding!  Mazel Tov!

From the eastern shore. Visiting family and stayed at OC for the week. Hopefully catching the game tonight and heading back to Indiana in the morning. 
 

The last time I tried to catch the orioles was at spring training last year and then COVID stopped those plans in their tracks.

Let's play two tomorrow!  27th man, Lowther gets to throw a Bumgarner no-no?  Zach Mattson with his first taste?

Only problem, that throws off Harvey's start in Queens .....

Well, I really hope you get to the game tonight, but I’m glad you were able to get some other things done.   What’s Indiana, like a 9-10 hour drive from Baltimore depending where you are going?   I drove from DC to South Bend once and I think that’s about how long it took, but that was 39 years ago so my memory might be a tad off.

MY MAN.

Those first two questions are mutually exclusive, unfortunately. There are TWO little ones now, so my golf horizon is still dark.

I haven't played in probably two years.

Very occasionally I'll hit a few into the woods off of my mat, but you know... things erode. My swing is like an octopus falling out of a tree.

I just got away from it, because... stuff. But also because of work my shoulders are hamburger. I can't hit a ball out of my own shadow anymore.

Once you've been at "a level"... and then you're 4 or 5 levels lower, game loses it's appeal. I'd rather play Augusta on the computer.

    • Only has 57 post, give them a break.  Probably better posted in my post on the MLB guidance thread but I do find it interesting that the kid cant take responsibility for their own actions when they were clearly breaking mlb rules that have been in place for half a century or more.  
    • Sorry if I'm coming off a little preachy in my last post. This is just a really insane situation. Minor league salaries did get a bump a year ago, but 43 teams were also dissolved. Hell, a few years ago players were not only paid a horrible wage, they had to pay clubhouse fees. I'm a capitalist, but watching Chris Davis make over $21 million this year to spend the entire year at home in Texas, while we have AA players sleeping in their cars just to make ends meet? And if the fans don't care about that situation, nobody else will. Certainly not the two Goliaths battling over the new CBA and how two divy up over $10 billion in revenue per year. Damn.......I'm getting preachy again. Ok, I'll stop. 
    • Generally speaking, the kind of players that are having their service time manipulated originally signed for sizable bonuses, and many will be paid MLB salaries for multiple years. The players that are talking about sleeping in cars didn't get those big bonuses. If they're in AA they're making about $12k a year, only paid during the five month season. Apparently not paid at all during spring training or AFL.  Worth noting that I'm not at all a fan of the system allows teams to manipulate service clocks at all. If Rutschman is ready on August 1st, he should be called up on August 1st, not held out until some day in April the following season. But as a fan who wants to see the club win, and sustain that winning, manipulating a players' service clock has become an accepted reality in order to retain players you otherwise couldn't afford to keep.  To me, all of this boils down to the absurdity of the Uniform Minor League Player Contract and corresponding salary terms being negotiated solely by two parties that do not represent minor league players in any capacity. The owners don't want to pay any more than they absolutely have to, and the Major League Players Association doesn't want to lessen the potential salaries of the players they do represent. It leaves the average minor league player earning below the federal poverty line. I find it a particularly odd contrast to be building a state of the art 22.5 acre training facility in the Dominican Republic but we won't provide basic housing solutions for our players in the organization.  I'm not feeling at all conflicted about my anger. 
    • The varying combinations of Berra, Elston Howard and Johnny Blanchard used by the NYYs in the late 50s and early 60s were pretty good.
    • I saw him demolish a pitch on Thursday at Bowling Green but then not much after that and he dropped a fly ball to cost Aberdeen a game Saturday. I agree though that he is one to watch.
    • Didn’t think the ump was as bad as everyone else in the stadium did, but there’s no doubt he was inconsistent and squeezing early then opened the zone way up in the last few innings. Grayson seemed to be relying on the FB/CU combo for the most part. Both pitches looked nice, though he was barreled a few times and seemed to let too many hitters hang around fouling pitches off in the first couple innings.
    • I do find it amusing that some of the folks that are unhappy with this situation are fine with the Orioles gaming service time to suppress salary and delay the ability to choose an employer.
