Joe Girardi in the Rain

Aroldis Chapman did not throw strikes to the first hitter he faced in the top of the 9th inning last night. He walked him with the Yanks ahead by a run. Why? Well, because it was raining cats and dogs, right? Sure enough it had been raining steadily for over an hour but now the rain intensified and the Yankees’ stud closer could not land properly or get a grip on the ball or something.

Joe Girardi came out to talk to the umpires. The men in blue huddled together, made a signal, and out came the tarp.

Off I went to sleep only to read the comic details this morning.

Had a feeling it was going to go down like that.

Final Score: Rangers 9, Yanks 6.

Horseshit. The rain delay was longer than the game. No more pep pills but let's play at 2 O'clock in the morning. Call it or suspend it until the next day.
