StrasCast: Predicting the start... and the weather

By Jamie Jones

* Our Full Forecast | Weather Wall | NatCast | Nationals Journal *

Like many Washingtonians, we at Capital Weather Gang are looking forward to Stephen Strasburg's imminent entrance onto the D.C. sports scene. Of course, like many of you, we're interested if we hold the "golden ticket" to his first major league start, rumored but unconfirmed to be June 4 at Nationals Park, assuming all goes well in his next scheduled start Saturday for Class AAA Syracuse -- and assuming weather doesn't get in the way. And so we add to the speculation on Strasburg's D.C. debut with yet another data point: the forecast for his next start. Check back each day for updates...


Next projected start: Saturday, May 29

Location: Syracuse, N.Y.

First Pitch: 7 p.m.

Forecast: Mostly clear, stray clouds, low 70s to mid-60s

Chance of delay/postponement: 10%

Jinx him? Or just the weather in Syracuse on Saturday night?

hey, keep the Strascast going, I've already cast my lot by buying tickets to the game on the 4th! It'll at least be nice to know if I'm going to get soaked that night, especially if Strasburg dosen't show up on the mound....
