When it rains, it pours with Jorge Posada jokes.

There is nothing more annoying then setting your lineup only to have that bitch Mother Nature rain on your parade. Like last week when the Mets/Rockies game was rained out and I had Carlos Beltran waste a roster spot while Jason Kubel and his four RBIs sat on my bench. In any league with daily transactions, especially head-to-head leagues, these seemingly minor choices can be the difference between victory and defeat. That’s why your boy Cheeks is here to save the day. Aside from being a fantasy basketball genius, world renowned humanitarian, and beer pong Hall of Famer, I’m also an accredited weatherologist (that’s right, I said weatherologist). So check back here at Sons of Roto every day to get the report on what games may get the dreaded PPD before setting your lineup. I ain’t no bitch like Al Roker though, so I won’t waste any time with frills or birthday wishes for old people.
Now, the forecasts for Tuesday’s games:
There are a ton of potential weather-related problems on Tuesday. Must be that time of the month for Mother Nature.
PIT vs. WAS: This game is scheduled to start at 1:00 PM and there is actually a 93% chance of rain all day and night beginning at 1:00. 93% of the time you really shouldn’t be starting any Nats or Pirates anyway, so make sure you have these guys on your bench.
BAL vs. BOS: 95% chance of rain showers from game time at 7:00 PM through midnight, so pretty good chance of a PPD.
NYM vs. FLA: 94% chance of thunderstorms all night long. Not looking good.
LAA vs. OAK: 65% chance of showers throughout the night.
CHC vs. CIN: 60% chance of showers throughout the night.
MIL vs. LAD: 76% chance of showers beginning at 7:00 PM, decreasing to 42% from 8-12 so looks like a best case scenario would be a delayed start.
NYY vs. TB: The game is being played in a dome, so no real problems on the field. However there is a 100% chance of wet conditions in the Yankee locker room due to Jorge Posada’s tears.
