Let’s Play Two … On Sunday

Weather situations like this would invariably lead Mike Bonner, the Yankees’ game production guru, to roll out his interminable loop of rain-related songs that included “Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head” to “Riders on the Storm,” “Have You Ever Seen The Rain,” Who’ll Stop The Rain,” “Fool in the Rain” and any other rock/pop tune that had a hint of precipitation in the title.

As of 6 p.m., despite the radar showing “a big green blob out there coming this way,” as Joe Girardi told reporters at the start of his pregame media session, the Yankees and Red Sox had still planned on trying to play Friday night’s game. At 7:05, the game was officially postponed. Friday’s game will be played as the second game of a doubleheader on Sunday. The game will start at 6:30.

Kudos to the umpires for making the decision early and not delaying until after the West Coast games begin. The Yankees have already been through this twice this season — once with the Red Sox and once with the Orioles, where they had home games start after 10:30.

Freddy Garcia, the scheduled starter, will get the ball tomorrow afternoon in what could be his last audition for a Division Series start.

Should be a fun couple of days, if they can get the games in.

Prolonging the agony for RSN, so, I'm okay with it.

Between movements, of course. And between bottles.

Speaking of the Halos losing, does anyone know of a good Angels oriented blog? The mainstream media coverage here in OC is terrible.

12 thelarmis   ~  Sep 24, 2011 1:23 am

[11] ya know, it's funny you mention that. the "sweetspot" blog at espn, is actually quite good. after rob neyer left, david schoenfield took it over and the quality rose exponentially. he's got a network there for 28 teams; the only 2 missing are the pale hose and halos. huh.

sorry i can't help. maybe cult of basebaal knows of something - he's in the LA area...

[11] I think I remember seeing Halos Heaven on the sidebar @ the old Banter. Couldn't tell you if it's any good or not, though.
