Do your worst – Post postponement post for June 12, 2013

What makes you a man is what you do when that storm comes. You must look into that storm and shout as you did in Rome. Do your worst, for I will do mine! – Edmond Dantes, The Count of Monte Cristo

Perry the Postponement Penguin sez: No game on Wednesday in Beloit.  Doubleheader on Thursday with game one starting at 4:30pm.  Hiram Burgos was scheduled to make the start on Thursday.  He will probably start one of the games, but it had to be decided which game it would be.  Austin Blaski will start the other game.

Sorry, folks, park's closed.  Moose outside shoulda told ya.

Wow. Thanks, Perry. You pretty much stole one of the reasons I was going to do this post.

Before you give the Snappers any grief for calling the game when it looked like this around 4:30 this afternoon:

Storm clouds rolling in, but not raining.

It looked like THIS at about 6:30 tonight:

Oh, you want to see if it’s raining?
June `12 2013 009
Yeah. It’s raining.
June `12 2013 010
And dark and not stopping any time soon.

I’d like to think that it’s honest and insightful reporting that allowed Rattler Radio to finish 5th on the list of MiLB Pro Blogs for the month of May.  But, I really know that it’s the weather photos and my menagerie of weather related animal familiars that really brings in the traffic!  Right, Carl?

Lineup & Game Notes for April 15, 2012

Carl, the rain hating camel.

Greetings, Rattlers fans! I’m Carl, the rain hating camel.  I just wanted to let you all know that there is a bit of a drizzle falling over Time Warner Cable Field at Fox Cities Stadium, but it should be moving through and you will hear the call of PLAY BALL! very soon.

The grounds crew put the tarp on the field last night.  They dumped the water off the tarp at 10am and all of that water has been soaked up by the intricate drainage system under the field.

Long story short: Today’s game is still scheduled to start at 1:05pm and it’s going to be a great day for baseball.

Now, to the various data that you need to prepare for the game.

Carlos George 2B

I don’t believe that record is kept.

You are all very funny people….asking me what the Midwest League record is for doubleheaders.

I really don’t have any idea and I don’t want to look it up…

Carl, the Rain-Hating Camel sez, "This weather is quite horrible."

I mean I guess that I could, since I don’t have anything else to do tonight…

Brick, the Bad weather Hating Bactrian is very angry with this weather.

But, then, I would just get depressed and no one would want that…

Telemachus, the tarping tapir, wants you to know that the tarp is on the field. But, it should be off later tonight.

Once the Sun comes out and the flowers are in bloom and there is actual baseball with one game played in a day and we can all laugh about this…

Fairfax, the field conditions ferret, says that the weather may be bad, but the field will be in great shape for the doubleheader on Wednesday.

Then, maybe I can look it up.

Perry, the Postponement Penguin, says he hasn't been around much doing his job lately because he just couldn't deal with it. But, maybe if he could show up this one time that would put a stop to this madness.

Until then… Just get some rest.  It’s gonna be a long day tomorrow.

Tyler Thornburg gets the start in game one.  Austin Ross gets the ball in game two.
