It’s still raining …

David AdamsIt was supposed to rain until 9 p.m., according to Joe Girardi. So no game, the first rainout here this season. CC Sabathia took his start being washed away in stride.

“I’m not very intense before I pitch,” Sabathia said. “Either way, I wasn’t really worried about it. I was sitting on the couch, and they told me it was canceled. So I played catch. I’ll be fine.”

So the Yankees will fly on to Baltimore this afternoon.

“They’ve got a team that can go to the playoffs again,” Robinson Cano said.

Sabathia will start Monday night against the Orioles, followed by Phil Hughes and Hiroki Kuroda. Vidal Nuno was originally going to start Monday night or Tuesday night, but he will be skipped and work out of the bullpen for a few days. After Thursday’s off day, David Phelps is set to start Friday night at Tampa Bay.

As far as today’s ticket situation, fans with paid tickets can use them when the game is made up or exchange them for any regular-season game, subject to availability (and there seems to be availability this season). Complimentary tickets are only good for the makeup date, which hasn’t been announced.
