StrasCast: The final countdown

By Jamie Jones

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

So, where are we in "As the Strasburg start turns?" Friday, June 4th was looking like a celebration of the start of major league Stras-mania in Washington, D.C., but quickly turned into a minor league farwell appearance in Buffalo tomorrow. That means that Stephen Strasburg's D.C. debut has been delayed to the June 8th game against the Pirates (tickets kind of still available). That is, of course, if the weather cooperates. (The Nationals have previously tried to maintain Strasburg's schedule of pitching every fifth day, so inclement weather on one of his scheduled starts could change the schedule once again.) So, each day, as the weather warrants, we'll update you on how the forecast is shaping up for Strasburg's next start and what it means for Strasmas...

StrasCast - Scheduled Minor League Farewell

Projected start: Thursday June 3 vs Buffalo Bison

Location: Buffalo , N.Y.

First Pitch: 1:05 p.m.

Forecast: Mostly Cloudy, lower 70s

Chance of delay/postponement: 10%

Outlook: The mild midweek weather persists over the Northeast Thursday, providing a slight chance of storms but more than likely a mostly pleasant afternoon.

StrasCast - Scheduled Major League Debut

Projected start: Tuesday June 8th vs Pittsburgh Pirates

Location: Washington, D.C.

First Pitch: 7:05 p.m.

Outlook: The early read is for high pressure to provide calm weather, but a lot can change in a week so stay tuned.

I believe the game in Buffalo has a 1:05 p.m. start time.

Yep, initially had the wrong time (and at one point, had the wrong location as well). I knew I picked up my wrong Buffalo Bison's schedule when working on this post...
