**Today’s game has been cancelled due to inclement weather at Nationals Park**
Checking in here at Nationals Park where the tarp is down and the rain is falling. If you saw my post earlier on the forecast, it is not looking great for the afternoon. There is a lot of precipitation expected.
The Nats have tweeted that they hope to get the game in as scheduled, but will monitor the situation over the next few hours. At 12:45 p.m. we are set to talk to Matt Williams and Stephen Strasburg about Opening Day. We expect an announcement soon about Doug Fister being placed on the 15-day disabled list. They also have to confirm the fact both Tanner Roark and Taylor Jordan will make the roster. Stay tuned for that.
Both Roark and Jordan are supposed to pitch today. We’ll see if they can get this one in. If they take the field, it will be against a decent crop of Tigers’ regulars including Miguel Cabrera.
Check back for updates…
