Weather thread

Postby TheGinner » Sun Mar 30, 2008 7:21 pm

How difficult do you guys think it would be to put together a thread of the day's weather forcast for next day games?

For instance, tomorrow Chitown has 90% chance of rain. I'm thinking I should bench Prince if it is going to be PPD.

I think Yahoo kind of screws you on delays and PPD games and locks in your position players even if the game is going to be cancelled.

Ideas?

Forecasts are great.

They are, but it would also be good to have a thread to post confirmed postponements or reports from people on the ground in MLB cities to give a more timely indication on weather.

i like the idea of having a weather thread at least for early part of the season. weather conditions always change and it's nice to have some further insight from the locals in case of sudden changes.

Seems like a weather thread (which could be quite useful) would belong in the Who To Start/Bench Forum.

Not sure about EVERY game, ChC/Mil looks bad. Its awfully rainy in NY now, but seeing out weather last night and this morning here in MI, I think it'll get played. I was expecting Det/KC to get rained out today but its just foggy outside and not a whole lot of rain.
