Yeah, my flight leaves at noon but I'll be in town thru Tuesday so not a big deal. Just trying to plan out my night to decide what to do with the kids if the game is postponed. Looks like some of the showers that were going to occur during the day have broken up but that the night is still supposed to be hit hard.

Visited the Aquarium or the Science Center as backup plans.

On a positive look some of these fronts appear to be moving faster then predicted and trending toward the NE thru PA which would have the nasty stuff miss B-More

May not have much of a choice, I haven't been too good in the past, with predicting play or cancel, but dang, it doesn't look good to play tonight.

True. It looks awful. But I wonder if this is a scenario where they try to just get 5 innings in. Or maybe start TJM with anticipation he needs to get swapped out for Rondon or the game might not make it to 5 innings.

Weather.com is still showing heavy bands from 8-10.

That might work, but at this point, not even sure, it will be clear at 7 for the game to start. Flash flood warnings are in effect and they are talking rains from 3/4 to an 1 inch, this evening and thats on top of the 3/4 to an inch during this afternoon.

Ah ok. Thanks for the clarification. For some reason I thought it was 24 hours. And opposite.

Yep, you get the 26th man for the second game regardless, but you get it for the FIRST game as well if the double header is scheduled more than 48 hours in advance. Source

Having tix for Sunday, I wouldn't mind being given a single-admission double header. Unless that means we Sunday ticketholders have to buy another game, and those who had the Thursday game will get to go to Sunday's for free.

I'm not Phil Connors so I dunno if it'll rain, but I DID manage to avoid the "doozy" puddle this morning.

Ned?! *punch*

I doubt it, Friday or Saturday will be the DH.

    • Because Mateo should start in CF and Urias belongs on the bench as much as possible, and just started on Monday. Jackson had some better AB's last night and should be given the chance to build on them, if he is being given the opportunity to work his way out of this.
    • There’s only one or two posters I know of who have seriously suggested extending Means, and that was during the offseason before his delayed start to 2024 and rocky rehab.  yark14 is crazy if he thinks anyone but him will be clamoring for a Means extension after 2-3 starts.   He could throw 20 shutout innings and I doubt there would be much clamor.  Let’s see Means get through the remainder of the season healthy and then we can worry about whether we want him to be part of the team in 2025.   
    • It's when a large market (non-revenue sharing recipient team) finishes low in the standings, it limits their draft slot.  Hard to differentiate between sucking on purpose or more organic reasons...  but the large market teams can at least band-aid the issue with money.
    • Those were two crappy plays and each one resulted in a runner advancing to 2B.   The burden of proof is on Kjerstad to show he’s better than O’Hearn out there.   He sure didn’t prove it last night.  
    • Nothing was working yet he threw a lot of strikes, had 7 Ks, only walked 1 and had a swingstr% of 25%. Plenty was working.  However, he had way too many hittable pitches as well. Wild in the strike zone. 6 days rest may have been a little too much as well.
    • Well, given his injury history, please put me down in the camp for a big no to any extension for John Means. If we are going to pay for pitching beyond this season (which we should and probably will have to) I am very confident that we will be able to find better than I guy who hasn’t been healthy since 2021. Extending him after 2 or 3 starts after he has missed 2 years seems to be the definition of unwise.
    • Yep.  Wading through pages of drama just for the next nugget is tiring...
