It’s not raining, but the tarp is on the field and the Yankees are expecting more rain at some point. They’ve just announced that today’s game is starting in a delay. No word yet on a new first pitch time.

UPDATE, 2:28 p.m.: The update is that there is no update. The Yankees just announced that they still haven’t figured out an estimated first pitch. It’s not raining much, but there’s a steady drizzle. Just an annoying day.

UPDATE, 2:32 p.m.: Huge bit of thunder here. Maybe this storm is coming after all. Still annoying.

UPDATE, 3:44 p.m.: Hey! The tarp is coming off the field. They just dumped it and there’s now a small lake in shallow left and left-center.

UPDATE, 3:48 p.m.: Estimated 4:30 start time.
