It's looking more and more like Stephen Strasburg's return to the majors is in jeopardy. The latest weather forecasts for the Washington D.C. area calls for an even greater chance of heavy rains than before, and as of 3:30 p.m., the rain was coming down heavily at Nationals Park.
Via Nathan Fenno of the Washington Times:
The 2:51 p.m. update from the National Weather Service maintains 100 percent chance of heavy rain tonight -- 1/2 to 3/4 inches worth.
The tarp remains on at Nationals Park, as the team has yet to postpone the game. It's a tough call for the team, because if they cancel now and the rain stops, they look very bad. That's probably why they have yet to cancel.
