Wonder if we get to see the same lineup tomorrow. I think the A-Rod decision should be reconsidered. I just can’t see the Yankees advancing with the turmoil they are going through right now. Baseball is probably the sport that feels the most like a movie script and you see all the stories developing before your eyes. We have no bigger story than A-Rod’s disappearance vs redemption storyline. Mo is gone. Jeter is gone. Most in the lineup are underachieving. And right now the biggest story is A-Rod.
I know it sounds crazy, but so usually is baseball.
As much hatred as I have for MLB, my guess is that they don’t want any of the kinds of repercussions that happened last year when the Ys and Tigers started a game and then it had to be called. So they erred on the side of caution. I don’t know the weather forecast so don’t know if there is rain coming in. But I have to believe that’s why they called it.
They should have played, even if it rained out you’d get X number of innings from CC and the chance to use him in game 7. Now they only get him for 1 game and Cashman said he wont pitch at all in a game 7
i would be livid too i i spent the money to get to the park, park the car, get crappy food and drink for absobitant prices and then there was no game despite no rain. the average family of 4 is out a couple hundred bucks and never saw a pitch. now just do it again tomorrow afternoon, before you’re supposed to get off work and just after the kids get out of school.

Is this going to be like Game 2 of the 2005 playoffs vs the Tigers where they cancelled the game even though it didn’t rain? Well it did but a light drizzle
Good God, I’ve hear it all. “Favorable platooning”? You have any stats to back that up? Sounds like more of your dishonest debating, which is really unbecoming.
No you proved my point right there. Chavez’s OPS was higher than Alex’s this year because he got extremely favorable platooning in a half seasons worth of PA total. He had 274 PA vs RHP, favorable platooning, and only had 313 PA total on the year.
