So the game was rained out tonight, after I assembled a group of 7 to watch it at Rocky Run. It wasn't raining at 8:15, but apparently a storm was on the horizon, and then they postponed it - then took the tarp off the field at around 9:30 only to put it back on because it looked like another storm was on the way. Pretty ridiculous, if you ask me. At least I can go to bed early.
After returning home, this is what I've gleaned from the Internet...
1) Apparently if they would've started the game at the regularly scheduled time, they would've gotten the game in as it hasn't even began to rain yet. Atleast not hard.
2) The Yanks were supposedly pushing for the delay because they didn't want Mussina to pitch a few innings and have to leave the game due to a delay. They'd have to being in their mediocre bullpen which would make them very vulnerable.
3)The Tigers weren't informed of the rain delay. The Yanks were informed prior and the Tigers are pissed. Justin was warming up and Mussina never even left the clubhouse.
Nothing shocking here. I hope we beat these scumbags.
