Actually, scratch that. Sitting here in my NYC apartment, I can tell you there is NO WAY they're playing that game at Citi Field tonight. The rain's freaking biblical right now.

Huh. Bummer. I had four guys going today and already lost Zimmerman to the PPD, now you say Nolasco most likely won't go. Crap. Those two would have started Sunday too, virtually locking up Ks at the very least. :-{

I'm sitting Volquez. His WHIP is 1.65 for the season. I think he's a great buy low because the Ks are still there and his stuff is still amazing. He can turn it around in a second, but I'm not starting him until he cuts the walks down a little.

Davies just went on the DL, I think he sticks around a bit, at least for another start against Baltimore

I'm starting Liriano in roto. It's Seattle. 2nd worst in MLB in HR, OBP, SLG, 3rd worst in Avg, hits, runs. Probably won't win given it's versus Felix and the Twins are worst than Seattle in ALL of those offensive (and offensive) stats, but hopefully he repairs some of his ratio damage.

I'm also in NY right now, but it's cleared up, I think there's definitely a chance the game is played tonight.

I'm rolling with Garza in 2 leagues, Nolasco in 1 and Kuroda in 1 tonight ;-D

Yeah, it's been pretty clear (just drizzle and mist) for the past couple of hours. It's supposed to pick up again before tomorrow, but hopefully it'll hold up long enough for them to get it in.
