    2018 Weather Performance thread

    Looks like slushy snow predicted for tomorrow morning. But we should still get the game to be played.

    Wonder if the start time could be pushed back to 4:05 or 7:05 to allow for cleanup of any slush

    Hopefully not 7:05. It's going to be cold Monday night.

    It'll be cold all day.


    This year is the earliest in history for the season opener. MLB is nuts.

    Players get 4 extra off days in the new CBA. Could have ended the season 4 days later but they want the season to still end on a Sunday. So only other option was starting 4 days earlier.

    I always hope they would start the season with a west coast trip. First, to get one west coast trip out of the way right off the bat and secondly to hopefully have better weather.

    Well, they did start the season with the Yankees and Red Sox playing in the only two domes in the AL East. So there's that.

    MLB schedules teams to play within their division for opening day, but one has to wonder about the logic of having Oakland host the Angels and the Giants hosting the Dodgers, while the Tigers open at home on March 29.

    I get the Reds opening at home because of tradition, but that should, IMO, be the only "northern" non-dome game scheduled that early in the stadium.
    Forgive me for taking the Contrarian view

    If the Yankees wanted to do the right thing they would announce tonight the game is moved to 4pm. I canít justify paying the prices I see online only to find out the game is postponed.

    I think if the forecast for Tuesday was not for all day rain tomorrow's game would have been called already. They will open the gates at 10 AM and some time in the afternoon the game will be played.

    I fully expect this game to be played. Iíd be surprised if we get a 1:05 first pitch which will put my trip to Citi Field tomorrow evening in jeopardy.

    Why would you want to freeze at Citifield. Besides, the Mets play there.

    Hourly forecast for tomorrow, from Accuweather.com:





    If that holds, they may even start on time. I hope those NYYFans who are planning to go have seats on the partly sunny side!

    They do have a tarp that can cover most of the OF. Hopefully they have it on the field tonight.

    Is using a tarp when there’s going to be a few inches of snow a good idea? It will make moving it impossible and I’m not sure if you can use a snow blower with a tarp...

    Or it keeps the field from being totally drenched.

    Smart thing would be to push first pitch to about 2 or 3 pm, ie the warmest hours of tomorrow. Also gives staff enough time to clear the snow on the field and in the seats as well.

    I really don't understand how they will get the field in shape by game time

    We have 6+" already and snow predicted for 2 more hours, the town plows just came by and I got the email from the Yankees reminding me the gates open early at 10:00 and to come early?

    Iíve now seen pictures from inside the stadium. There is no realistic way of playing at 1:05. At least 2 years ago they canceled the home opener fairly early

    The forecast is worse tomorrow with rain all day starting before 1:00 p.m. They should pushed today's start to late afternoon like 3 or 4 p.m.
    To all, life is too short, enjoy the baseball season even those that hate me.

    They should be playing in a dome or on the west coast/FLA early in the season.
