Game 91: Nationals (49-40) @ Orioles (49-41), 7:05 p.m. ET

This is your place to talk about the lefty/lefty match-up tonight at Camden Yards. A win for the O's will extend their AL East lead.

Patrick McDermott

It has been two days of rain and gross weather. But today, the Baltimore area has seen some serious sunshine. However...there is a 60 percent chance that it will be raining at seven o'clock tonight when Wei-Yin Chen is supposed to be throwing the first pitch out.

Of course, I said yesterday that we would have a delay to last night's affair at Camden Yards. That did not happen. Therefore, I know nothing about weather. So, maybe it will snow?

Either way, the Blue Jays are off tonight so an Orioles W will automatically give the O's another half game lead over those Canadian ball players. But a loss can have the reverse effect. Needless to say, this is an important game, ladies and gents.
