Hurricane Irene has barely reached the United States coastline, but the storm continues to wreak havoc on the Major League Baseball schedule.

According to Dan Babarisi of the Wall Street Journal, the Orioles have canceled Saturday’s doubleheader against the Yankees. One of the games will be made up in a split-doubleheader Sunday, and the other game will played on the night of September 8.

The Phillies, Marlins, Reds, Braves, Mets, A’s and Red Sox have also been affected by Irene, which is currently making it’s way through the Carolinas.

Stay safe out there, HBT readers.

    AJ was A-trocious again tonight.
    My impression of the situation? Girardi’s thinkin’: you wanna gimmee shit when I hafta drag you out of a freakin’ disaster, well eff you. Dig a hole deep enough to crawl into. Throw a strike once in a while cause yer fielders are fallin’ asleep behind ya.
    5 innings, 118 pitches, 3 wild pitches, 9 runs. Let Cashman figure out what to do wit ya.

    This guy has to go, Joe gave him all the rope he wanted and he still hung himself. What in Gods name do they do with this guy? My answer was long relief and mop up duty, but that was before Hughes got hammered. Hopefully Hughes just had a bad night, but time will tell.

      “What in Gods name do they do with this guy?”

      Hang him from the mezzanine facade by his nipple rings?

      Or maybe eat most of his salary and trade him to the Twins. Did wonders for Pavano.

        Gator, I’d take either, just get his ass out of the rotation.

        “Or maybe eat most of his salary and trade him to the Twins. Did wonders for Pavano.”

        How much is “most”?

        AJ is owed $33m over the next two years. You could not get another GM to take that contract off your hands for 10 cents on the dollar. NYY have two choices. Cut him (and pay him). Or play him (and pay him).
