Your regularly scheduled baseball game between the New York Yankees and Cleveland Indians has been postponed due to a seemingly endless torrent of rain. Well, at least I think so. You see, I live in Florida; it was 85 today and I just got back from taking my dog on a walk. In any case, the powers that be at Progressive Field have decided that there was no way to get the game in tonight, and so it will not happen.
A make-up date has not yet been announced; a double header on Thursday is not on the table because the weather figures to be similar tomorrow, too. Zach McAllister will start for the Tribe if they do, in fact, play tomorrow evening.
This rain out has some interesting implications in that if the Yankees are forced to come back mid-season they could be much healthier and more dangerous. On the other hand, however, a mid-summer tilt with the Yankees would probably draw considerably better than a rainy night in early April. We’ll go ahead and call it a wash for the organization.
Also, on the bright side: Indians pitchers combined to walk ZERO batters today, and Robinson Cano was held without a hit. Today was a good day.
