Capital Weather Gang's NatCast for tonight has 'Heat from start to finish. Sounds like a good thing to hope for from our pitcher! You might want one of those little portable fans on this breezeless night' with upper 80's at first pitch, lower 80's by ninth inning, 10% chance of rain.

Going Sunday. I figure late breakfast at Teaism up by Archives then a nice stroll over to the park early enough to pick up a bobble head.  It'll be my first.

I've got an extra ticket for tonight, plan on getting there early so could hand it off through the CF gate if someone wants it.

PM me if you're interested, first come first served.

Anybody hitting The Loft or someplace else between games?

Unfortunately Pislner Urkells are only happy now. Apparently the bar manager pulled the all game deal.

I'm in.

Capital Weather Gang's NatCast for today has 'Remember last evening? This one's quite a bit like that. At least the sun's not an issue even if heat and humidity still are. Watch out for a roaming shower or storm' - 88-90 at first pitch, 84-77 by ninth inning, 30% chance of rain.

Weather.com's hour-by-hour forecast has 20% chance of rain throughout the matchnight.

I like the seats up in that area. OC's probably using some sort of mind control on me.  :D

...the power of TBSITH compels you...THE POWER OF TBSITH COMPELS YOU!

Since it's a bit further round the first base line, 315 gets a bit longer sun exposure at afternoon matches (like tomorrow's) but still a good view.

Foul balls are also heading in that general direction - in the current homestand and the one immediately previous, a foul ball has landed in 314.

Better in-stand vendor service in the 300's generally these days too.

This event blows but listening to the people line up to toss softball questions at Rizzo has been amusing.

Had a couple of those myself yesterday during the interval - so glad they brought them back last month. Will try to get to the ballpark a bit earlier than usual to get those again.
