Game time: 8:00 pm EDT

Scheduled starters: Tim Wakefield (NR) v. Paul Byrd (1-0, 3.60)

The game will be on FOX, WRKO, and ESPN Radio

Cleveland weather: 2 pm observation at KCLE: Wind out of the south at 10 mph, visibility 10 miles in light rain, few clouds at 4,600 feet, scattered clouds at 8,000 feet, 11,000 feet overcast, temperature 67F, DP 54F

Forecast: A weak cold front is moving from west to east across the area. The leading edge of a band of showers ahead of the front is just entering the Cleveland area, and the stations west of Cleveland are reporting light rain at 2 pm. It looks like most of the instability is staying to the south, but there is a chance of thunder along with light rain showers through the evening. This may not be enough to postpone the game, but it's likely to be wet. Or at least damp.

The wind is out of the south now, which is blowing out. It looks like we can expect a south to east wind tonight.

How does rain/damp weather affect Wake's knuckler?

They are still reporting light rain at Cleveland, with the wind southeast, blowing out toward left, at less than 10 mph.

The band of rain looks like it isn't going to hold together, and most of the rain could be over by game time.



As far as the effect on the knuckleball, humid air is denser than dry air, so it should theorectically allow more movement, but I don't think the effect is all that noticeable over a short distance.

The BIG question:

Which member of the Barstaff drew the short straw and gets to monitor the Game Thread tonight?

IIRC, Mascho got the honors during Game 3 of the 2004 ALCS. Tonight could rival that night in terms of anger and frustration if Wake doesn't get off to a hot start.

Even better, that was my first night as a bartender here. Talk about baptism under fire!

It was that very night when many of us discovered for the first time, the quiet strength and simmering sexuality that you bring. I won't speak for everyone but I, for one, was changed that evening.

I'm still praying for rain so we get Beck and Tek, rather than Wake and Belli. Either way, I'll keep the faith though.

That's loser-speak. We will have none of that around here.

Come on, man. Get your head in the game.

I'm going to limit my self to one giant gulp of vodka per inning with water and cranberry juice in between. That should allow me to remain calm and not be as hung over as I was today.

Can't get shit-faced? I've got a very important meeting tomorrow morning and I am STILL going out with a friend to watch the game at a local watering hole. Then again, I'm a veteran of drinking big games. I know how to drink a big game.

The rain is moving out of the area. I don't think it's going to be a factor tonight unless something develops upstream, but it does not look like that's going to happen. The line of showers is falling apart, and there's dry air behind it.

Some times having a person that knows so much about weather is a good thing. Some times it isn't. We all still love you though Anni.

You're kidding, right? Boomer is old, but he's not that old.
