We’re still in a delay due to inclement weather while we await MLB’s decision regarding today’s game.— Washington Nationals (@Nationals) September 9, 2018
We’ll pass along more information as soon as it’s available. pic.twitter.com/Udt3CQtBl3
We are expecting more inclement weather today.— Washington Nationals (@Nationals) September 9, 2018
We are in communication with Major League Baseball and awaiting direction from the Commissioner’s Office regarding today’s game. pic.twitter.com/77grdxw5p6
1) It’s raining & has rained all day. 2) No idea if we’ll play or not. 3) While forecast looks dire there are no good solutions to a postponement. So this decision isn’t a no-brainer. It’s also out of my hands so if we play you will see me on TV for awhile today, if not you won’t— Len Kasper (@LenKasper) September 9, 2018
Maddon said he's never experienced a whole weekend of weather like this. Not sure what happens if game is cancelled. Cubs prefer not to come back Thur. (obviously)— Jesse Rogers (@ESPNChiCubs) September 9, 2018
“I’m looking at the three different weather services and none of it looks good,” Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. “This is a first with this intensity throughout the entire weekend, especially this time of the year. Normally by this time, the weather seems to straighten out.”— Patrick Mooney (@PJ_Mooney) September 9, 2018
This is what the radar looks like at game time for Cubs-Nats in D.C. Sunday. It's been like that all morning and there are zero signs of it letting up until 8 p.m. (EST).— Tony Andracki (@TonyAndracki23) September 9, 2018
We're either going to have another (very) lengthy delay or this one ain't gettin' played today, guys. pic.twitter.com/jDbt7ojKmC
