Several writers covering the Tigers-Rangers series just tweeted this gem from Jim Leyland, who was asked about yesterday’s no-rain rain postponement:
”If somebody buys an umbrella down here, then they cancel school.”
Dude, that rain delay just gave Max Scherzer an extra day of rest after his little bullpen stint against the Yankees on Thursday. Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth.
UPDATE: OK, he’s not looking a gift horse in the mouth. Just admitted that the rain may have helped the Tigers more than the Rangers due to the Scherzer thing and by giving Delmon Young‘s oblique an extra day’s rest.
