Any chance at all we get a game in tonight? I'm thinking of heading down to the park after work, but not sure if I should even bother. I don't mind sitting in some rain as long as they're playing, it just means I get to move to basically any seat in the ballpark with my $5 ticket. I know it's looking ugly right now, but what do you think the chances of them getting a game in tonight are?

I was just going to ask the same question. I was planning on making the trip south this afternoon, but I am not sure if I should bother. My problem is that I aready have tickets.

Opinions and updates are appreciated.

I thought you were putting a name on the Reds rotation....


"Arroyo and Harang and pray for raing"

That should be our slogan until we can another decent starter! :laugh:

Here is tonight's forecast:

Periods of showers and thunderstorms, mainly before 10pm. Low around 57. Southeast wind 13 to 17 mph becoming west. Winds could gust as high as 28 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%. New rainfall amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible.


I have a feeling they get the game in but there will probably be some long delays. They will try hard to get this in because otherwise it is a double header tomorrow.

Looks like we'll get the game in just fine tonight, possibly even without delays. The system is moving south to north and there doesn't seem to be much activity following the band that's going through Cincinnati right now.

It's early enough in the afternoon so it should have plenty of time to get through the area without affecting tonight's ballgame.

Hmm,

Depending on what tonight means a 30 MPH gust could cause for some interesting OF play.

We can only hope that the wind is gusting towards the outfield when the Reds bat and then switches directions and gusts towards homeplate when the Nationals are batting.

nothing like a day/night doubleheader for Thursday.

Calculating furiously now...if no game today, then Harang tomorrow and Arroyo pushed back to Friday to face Hamels.

I will take that scenerio over Williams vs. Hamels for $200.00, Alex.

I know a lot of you don't like weather.com much, but it's now saying that at 6 there's a 60% chance of t-storms, at 7 there's a 50% chance of scattered storms, and at 8 and beyond there's only a 40% chance of scattered storms. Looks like I'm crossing my fingers and heading down to the ballpark tonight. Screw you weather! :mooner:

I made the mistake of letting my wife have the final say as to whether we make the 2 hour drive tonight, and I think I just got denied. So at this point I will be rooting for a rain-out.

What is the ticket exchange policy anyway? Am I screwed or can I trade them for other tickets if it gets rained-out?

If it does get rained out you can exchange them for tickets to any other game.

The radar doesn't look near as bad as the forecast makes it seem. Unless there is further developement, the game will be fine.

If it's not rained out you can always call the ticket office and complain explaining that you're a big time fan and you have a long drive. If you threaten to not attend any more games you might get lucky and get a couple of ticket vouchers. Worth a shot anyways.

Weather.com showing rain in Cincy at the moment, although it still looks from the radar like it might shift north soon and a small window open up that would allow them to play...any locals with any observations at this point?
