    Don't think that matters too much in Seattle.

    Windy, drizzly, and in the 40's tonight. Beautiful day for a ballgame.

    Is it possible for Cole to start all the games?

    No but having him play LF or DH on off days sounds less absurd by the day.

    It actually rained for real here a couple of times in the last week. That said, Safeco has the silly retractable umbrella thing, so it'll be fine regardless (unless you sit in the sections where the wind will blow the rain in on you)

    True, but the games will be played.

    How many games got postponed yesterday? A bunch were in newer stadiums as well.

    Still is silly that retractable roofs are less common in baseball than football. The umbrella roof, while still exposing fans to some portions of the elements, is the perfect compromise for teams that want a more budget friendly option.

    Might as well include McHugh as somebody who will get starter-like innings... either with Keuchel or McCullers.

    DK is due for a great outing.

    After last year's results Julia has to eat some grasshoppers right?

    He really did do a good job of limiting the Astros' offense last season. He started 4 games against Houston last year and the Stros managed to pull out two wins from those games even though Paxton only gave up 4 earned runs in 21.1 IP. Astros didn't hit a single HR off him last year so maybe they can get that part of the game going early today.

    Four-game sweep is acceptable after that crap weekend.

    Correa hitting .375 career vs Paxton - that BA has increased.

    Keuchel can go ahead and improve upon his recent history.
