Is this game going to happen? Some brutal thunderstorms coming in soon— a small one just passed over Worcester headed into Fenway but another bigger one is coming.

Good question. I have tickets and am debating whether I should go in or not.

61% chance of rain. Could turn into 5-hr marathon including delays.
Betts, Devers, Bogaerts, JD Martinez, Benitendi, Chavis, Bradley, Vasquez, Holt

Do not pinch-hit for Brock just because a lefty reliever comes in - Travis makes Nunez seem dangerous.

50-70% possibility of rain, or so, for each of the next 24 hours. Should be fun. Hope people have flood insurance.

Showers forecast all day tomorrow? Move the team to San Jose (CA, not Costa Rica).
Tor @ Det Friday
Bos @ Balt Friday

They should really move either tonight;s or tomorrow's game to night, but theywon't.

Tor has no offday on the 29th, unlike us, so not sure when we reschedule to if had to.

I’m bagging—no appetite for rain delay marathon games.
This brings up a question with a 1PM game the next day. Is there a point at which extra-inning games would have a curfew?

This article (note the teams in the picture) tries to answer.

I had never seen that story before, it is fascinating. Great pull.

I'm sure this is recency bias, but it seems like almost every game the Sox have played this year was played in the rain. Maybe it just seems like that because of how drizzly the team has played.

Second game I’ve gone to this year. The other was the Mother’s Day debacle. What the shit?

Wouldn't have this problem if they would just install the Megatarp or they could bomb the clouds like China did during the Olympics.

X, just absurdly, turning that shitty pitch into a double. Unreal.

We need some fucking more of that.

Where's that shit been for the last three months?

That may be my favorite play of the year.

As soon as JBJ picked that ball up, I thought that guy is gonna be dead.
