15 MLB games have been rained out, just 6 shy of the total for the entire 2010 season.

For the Blue Jays, Jason Nix was placed on the DL after the slide by Rodriguez in yesterday game. Mike McCoy was called up in order to take his place. Also, the Blue Jays will wait until tomorrow to see how Hill is progressing before deciding whether to put him on the DL too.

Brandon Morrow making his first start of the season

Re: MLB Weekend, April 23-24, 2011

Last night's Cards/Reds game provided some interesting strategy.

St. Louis announced before the game that they were changing starters due to the expected bad weather. They feared there would be a delay and they would end up wasting Kyle McClellan's start so they sent Miguel Batista to the hill. Batista threw 6 pitches or so and sure enough there was a 2+ hour storm. After the delay, they then sent McClellan out who pitched 6 innings.

The Reds, on the other hand, had Volquez warm up in preparation to start. After the long delay, he never even threw a pitch. Baker brought in a reliever in the bottom of the first.

The Twins finally with a good looking game.

On a side-note, MLB pitchers have to be the highest per-capita group of men that wear necklaces, and especially big rope hemp necklaces, right? I don't remember the last man I saw in person wearing a hemp necklace.

Jonny Gomes constant readjustment of his batting helmet gets really old.

Does anyone know what's up with Joe Buck's voice? I didn't even think it was him on the Fox broadcast.

The Cardinals bullpen again acting like an oral whore and blowing another one. Damn rain delay screws up the flow of the game.

Five more home runs for the Yankees tonight. When Brett Gardner is crushing the ball you know it's just not your night.

Pretty sure the rules prohibit any kind of reflective jewelry worn by the pitcher.
