Tired of rain, Yankees and Orioles fans? Tough!

Storm cloud

In an earlier post I jokingly said that today’s makeup game between the Orioles and the Yankees would probably have rain, thereby extending those teams’ sogginess streak to approximately 800.  I probably should have checked the forecast, however, because, wouldn’t you know it, rain is expected today in Baltimore.

There’s a slight chance of rain at the time of first pitch, but it increases steadily throughout the afternoon with thunderstorms forecast for late afternoon.

The Yankees have one more day off and that’s a travel day for a west coast trip, so you know this game is going down.  And I bet it’s played very, very quickly by all involved.

    “And I bet it’s played very, very quickly by all involved.” But, but, but the Yankees are involved….you’ve created a paradox that shall swallow the Earth and destroy the universe (get it?).

    Tis is the SECOND attempted make-up of the 4/22 game. Nova can hold it for five, ARod can hit a HR, then we are outta here.

    Craig, when Ulysses offended Poseidon he had to make amends before he could go home. He was too stubborn, though and it took him forever to get home. It probably rained on him all that time, too. You know what you have to do: apologize to Aquaman. Do it now, before that ‘cold’ gets worse or the entire Braves organization, all their fan base and every team they have to face or is covered by you (which is all of them) drowns. Don’t be a fool man! Apologize!

      And Craig, I will try to show more compassion than you’ve shown me when your Braves go out [again] in the first round of the playoffs.

      Another foiled postseason para los Bravos? Tough!

    The rain in question is currently west of Nationals Park. According to The Washington Post, it may interrupt the Nats-Dodgers doubleheader, but not prevent it.

    According to the radar, the worst rain should stay west of Camden Yards as well. Not that the radar is always right.

    Hopefully it stays away. The overcast here right now is incredibly comfortable.

    They played 10 innings and the Evil Empire lost.
