Happy Felix Day, maybe?
Here’s the National Weather Service short version:
Today: Showers and possibly a thunderstorm. Some of the storms could produce heavy rain. Steady temperature around 72. Northeast wind around 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90%.
The MLB.com blurb says
Area rain will delay the start time until at least 12:05 p.m. PT.
Surprised they’re not just making them play now. Worked last night, didn’t it? Are they really hoping they’ll get six-something hours in? Or why not pack everyone up and play them up here when it was clear the weekend was going to be awful? They’ve got direct charter flights, and — I’ll stop ranting. I’m just not looking forward to twelve hours of on-again, off-again baseball while worrying somebody’s going to get hurt.
Update! 2:05. So now we’re hoping they can get two games in, 4 local and then ~7 local. yeaaahhhh.
Update: 2:45. If they wanted to really get two games in, the way to do it would be to get the broadcasters to run w/no commercial breaks (or super-limited ones). You could craaank these out.
