Now that we’re in the regular season, once I post the lineup I’ll post any updates under it. So everything will be in the same place. This is what we did last year and it seemed to work out well.

UPDATE, 12:28 p.m.: * * * THE YANKEES HAVE JUST ANNOUNCED THAT THE START OF THE GAME HAS BEEN DELAYED * * * The weather is supposed to improve enough to play at some point this afternoon.

UPDATE, 12:50 p.m.: The lovely Yankees Chick [2] is live blogging the game for AOL’s FanHouse blog today [3]. So check out the wit and wisdom of Maureen if I get too boring for you.

UPDATE, 1:14 p.m.: The clubhouses are closed, so all we can do it wait at this point. The Yankees seem to believe they’ll get the game in this afternoon. The weather is supposed to be worse tomorrow.

I’ll let you know if I hear anything definitive.

UPDATE, 2:17 p.m.: Nothing definitive yet. But it sounds like they’re planning to cancel the game and play it tomorrow night. I’ll let you know once I hear something.
