- Rain could be a big issue tonight, as four games are going to be impacted by a large storm system.
- Let's take a look at how Friday's weather is impacting tonight's MLB slate of games.
Every time I look out this darn dining room window of mine all I see is rain. I look at my weather app on the phone and seven of the next 10 days have little rain clouds on them. I’m going to need to plant some flowers ASAP if I want May flowers because the April showers are living up to their hype.
Tonight, there’s seemingly a monsoon taking over half of the country. Though it should move out in time for at least a couple of games in the area to be played, there are a couple more that have serious postponement risks.
Highest Weather Ratings
- Cubs at Diamondbacks: 73
- Brewers at Mets: 57
- Marlins at Phillies: 56
Weather Ratings are a proprietary number created by FantasyLabs, which are on a 0-100 scale, with 100 being the best hitting atmosphere and 0 being the best pitching atmosphere. Weather Rating takes into account temperature, wind speed, wind direction, stadium elevation, humidity and atmospheric pressure.
It’s going to be hot, hot, hot in Arizona, but guess what? They are apparently keeping the roof open! They better not change their mind and close it, because I already took the over.
Historically, the over has hit at a 56% rate in Arizona when the roof has been open according to Bet Labs. The over/under has risen from 8.5 to 9 since opening — perhaps bettors are catching on to the trend.
The next two games on the list? Well, they’re gonna be wet ones, just like the moist hand wipes you may use after shoving a couple dozen wings down your throat. You’re not going to lick those fingers at a classy establishment like Hooters, are you?!? I don’t think so.
