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.

Until tomorrow.

    “the Yankees are forced to come back mid-season they could be much healthier and more dangerous”

    meaning it could get worse than 11-6 and 14-1?

  • Sean Porter says:

    The rainout is a blessing in disguise for the Indians in multiple ways.

    Whoever came up with this season’s schedule did the Tribe NO favors. New York and Boston – typically two big draws for the Indians – both come here in April. The Cincinnati series is during the week.

  • DP Roberts says:

    Wait, is David Tennant one of our new starting pitchers???

    • SteveO says:

      He’d probably be better than 3/5 of the current rotation. But then again, the Sonic-Screwdriverball might be an outlawed pitch in MLB….

  • Jeff D says:

    It figures that one of ESPN’s (aka the “Evil Empire” network) rare and possibly only Indians game scheduled is a rainout! At least they found out how to get to Cleveland, for a while it appeared that ESPN (which claims to be a national sports network)had no idea how to get to Cleveland.

    The Yanks couldnt be more hot right now and we are the exact opposite. We have less games without santana and an actual pitcher pitching. We got lucky

    It was raining so hard ,I was expecting to see Crash Davis sliding into second.
