Day 2 in Seattle with the Marlins, and a quick glance out of my 27th floor hotel room window -- one that offers a direct view of the Space Needle -- reveals gray clouds and a strong hint of rain. Typical weather in these parts. The good news is that Safeco Field has a retractable roof, so there is no danger of a delay or rainout.
