I will be amazed if this game gets played as forecast is for rain most of the night

Question becomes if enough holes in the heavier rain develop that they decide to try?

ex: this possible break around 8pm

It would be nice if they could get the game in on National Amir Garrett Appreciation Day!

Would love to see us go for 2 in a row, but the weather doesn't seem to want to cooperate.

The Cubs are doing the rain dance because they ain't going to beat that lineup with Castillo on the mound.

no way this game gets played tonight, which is a major bummer.

Reds
07-30-2020, 05:22 PM
yeah if they want to get this game in they're going to have to get desperate and play in the rain and have them take the field at 11 at night or something like that. I do not see it happening

Tucker Barnhart said when he was in the hospital on paternity leave in Indy, he followed the #Reds through the gameday app because the broadcast was blacked out on his phone.

MLB blackout restrictions are no fun for anybody.

By the 3rd inning the Reds lineup would include Colon, VanMeter, Ervin, 2 grounds crew guys who hit righty and an old ball of yarn used to patch up the yellow seats at Riverfront.

And that's if the Cubs don't make a pitching change. The grounds crew is because Bell got a scouting report that they were 2-2 in a little league game that was rainy in 2005.

It could clear up by like 9 pm. Not likely, but it could. Weather forecasting is all janked up thanks to our 2020 companion covid-19.

Two nights in a row with the same line-up. I think Bell's on to something...

I live right in downtown Columbus, and looking at the radar you’d think it’s a steady if not heavy rain. Not the case. It’s just been drizzling on and off for hours.

Anybody in Cincy that can give some insight? Wondering if that’s your experience as well.

It’s the little things. These are amazing people.. I love our grounds crew...

Get you a first baseman who buys noisemakers for the whole grounds crew.

Two nights in a row with a right hander on the mound where Bell has the complete compliment of players at his disposal.

Reds

That fact that the start has been delayed and the game hasn't been straight up postponed makes me think they'll try harder this season than they usually do to get the games played on time

Good news....weather forecast improved from 100% chance of rain to 90%!!

I have to believe the crew in charge of making the decision sees a window somewhere or this would have already been scrapped for tonight. Both teams are traveling and you dont want to delay that if you know there is no shot.

unless the radar (not the forecast, the actual radar) is way off, i don't see how this game can be played. they would have to start at like 11 pm unless i'm missing something on the future radar.

I looked at iweathernet and the forecast last I checked had Cincy area clear at 9pm. Now how accurate that is I have no idea

With the exception of maybe Winker, he should roll with this line-up for righty, lefty, underhand thrower or even Kent Tekulve.

MLB, union making progress on deal that would allow for doubleheaders consisting of two seven-inning games, sources tell me and
@Jaysonst
. Would be for 2020 season only. Parties believe more doubleheaders will be necessary as schedule is adjusted. Idea is to preserve pitching.

Awesome! Advantage Reds since they won’t need to use their bullpen during double headers.

55-65% chance of rain 8-10pm I think that is the window they are looking at. Per Weather.com

A long delay mid-game that scratches Castillo would be unfortunate.

This is a another case where baseball is kind of going away from what makes sense with Corona. Before the restart I swear they said they wanted to avoid long periods where the teams would be in the clubhouse together. So it is just not make sense this year to be waiting through long delays.

if they are willing to play in the rain, perhaps they can get it in.

#Reds and #Cubs do share an off day on Aug. 10. Reds start a homestand afterward. Cubs begin a road series in Cleveland on Aug. 11. Cubs also return to Cincinnati from Aug. 28-30.

#Reds starting rotation now: Castillo on Friday, Bauer on Sat., DeSclafani on Sunday. Sonny Gray on Monday, Tyler Mahle on Tuesday
Moving Trevor Bauer back 1 day means he won’t square off against his good friend Mike Clevinger on Wednesday (Bauer now lined up for Thursday in CLE).
