This has been a familiar scene at ball parks these days.

Fantasy sports are all about stats so here is one for ya: at this early stage of the season there have been 30 cancellations compared to 21 all of last year. That number should increase by the end of Wednesday, and things don't look to be getting much better heading into the weekend. This just solidifies how important it is to check out The Cheeks Weather Report here at sonsofroto.com every day. Thursday's forecast for the majority of the United States looks about as ugly as Bastion Booger (maybe slightly less), so lets get right into the slate of possible problems:
WAS vs. NYM: The game is scheduled to start a 1:10 PM, but there is a 60% chance of thunderstorms all day and night. You'd think with such a large window of time they would be able to fit the game in somehow. To be on the safe side, make sure to check the weather reports closer to game time to determine if you need to look elsewhere for stats.
BAL vs. NYY: 71% chance of thunderstorms from game time until 11:00 PM, improving to 44% after that.
COL vs. PHI: 69% (quit your snickering at the 69---this is a serious Weatherology report) chance of rain throughout the night.
DET vs.. BOS: 64% chance of rain all night long.
TEX vs. KC: 71% chance of thunderstorms from 7:00-9:00 PM improving to 43% after that.
