Quote of the day
"Typical Bryce right there, he's all about the drama." -- Washington OF Jayson Werth, after Bryce Harper homered in his first game after returning from the disabled list
The entire east coast is already pretty damp, but it’s going to get soggier today, as heavy rains are forecast from Florida to New England. The weather dashboard currently suggests that games scheduled in Boston, New York (Mets), Washington, Pittsburgh, & Atlanta are all “on the bubble”, and while it’s certainly possible that they’ll all get played, the uncertainty will at least make line-up setting problematic. These are the conditions that even confound detailed weather forecasting, as I’ve recently looked out the window to see it raining when the current hourly forecast shows a 0% chance of precipitation. So, my best advice is to be wary.
Weather permitting, Alex Rodriguez begins a rehab assignment in Charleston, S.C. (Class A) today – the next development in the continuing soap opera. If nothing else, it should be good for the local economy in Charleston, as the team will undoubtedly attract more fans and especially more reporters.
