Re: MLB Friday, August 26, 2011 "Thome Returns Home edition"

Whats the status of the east coast schedule for this weekend? Why aren't they playing games this afternoon? Orioles probably expecting over 200,000 fans for their 5 game home series vs Yankees,but they may not get any games played. Day Night doubleheaders aren't the answer. Play straight doubleheaders and get out of Dodge before the storm hits. Air Flight's will be postponed, so traveling will be difficult.

Texas doing their damndest to give away the division. If the Angels take the division we might potentially see Weaver vs. Verlander go toe to toe a few times in the ALCS. That'll be good baseball.

But instead we'll get Burnett vs. Lackey!

In important news, I read that Jeter broke up with Minka Kelly. Jesus, how do you go up from that? But knowing Jeter, he can pull it off.

Red Sox are playing a split double-header tomorrow, canceling Sunday's game. First game is at noon and the second is scheduled for 5pm.

Too bad Thome didn't land where he wanted to go.

BTW, who the hell is Minka Kelly?

Yeah, the Phils changed to an epic day/night DH tomorrow with Halladay and Lee pitching on the same day. But the second game isn't going to happen. They don't want back to back because they want to clear the house between each game so they don't lose money.

Re: MLB Friday, August 26, 2011 "Thome Returns Home edition"

Well the Braves did have a 3 game series against the Mets in NY. Early this morning it was changed to a 2 game series with the Sunday game cancelled and the 4PM Sat game moved to 12PM ... and now I've just read they've gone ahead and cancelled the Saturday game since NY Transit will be shutting down.

These last three days have seen the Rangers playing some absolutely terrible baseball. Hopefully this series with the Angels will open that lead back up.

Weird. The Phillies website still has the 7:05 game as planned. Why is NYC being so apocalyptic?

With 5 games in 4 days (and 3 on the weekend), the Yankees asked to play a doubleheader In Baltimore today.... both the league and the Orioles refused. I understand the Orioles refusing (gate receipts), but the league refusing to allow moving the Sunday game in Baltimore (or moving one of the Saturday games to avoid the possibility of 2 or 3 rainouts) is a joke when they approved both Boston and Philly to move their Sunday games.

The O's/Yankees have another night game Monday (despite it being a travel day for the Yankees who have a series on Tuesday) - the league in it's wisdom said Monday can be used as a "cushion" to make up games... are they going to play a triple or quadruple header on Monday if one or two of the Saturday games gets rained out? It's already a given that the Yankees/O's have a double header on Monday to makeup Sunday's game (which the league is keeping on the Sunday schedule and has not yet been canceled )

This is the last trip to Baltimore and the Yankees have 2 offdays for the rest of the season (the day before and after a West Coast trip).... not sure how they make games up if more than one game gets rained out.

The other real stupid thing... Boston (smartly) moves up both Saturday game start times.... Baltimore (which I believe is a bit further south and where the storm will hit earlier?) is keeping the current game times.

Yeah because the amount of rain is the key variable in play here

Yes, after reading a bit more I see that NYC is worried it might actually be submerged.

No you're right the travel logistics in the city in Philadelphia is pretty much the same as in NYC..... both are pretty much impacted the same by a storm

Oh in that case I hope you don't have tickets to the game... It'll probably be cancelled.

Phils cancelled the Sunday game that was moved to Sat night. I think the Saturday game that was moved to 12:00 Saturday is still on.

I don't know the Yankee code that you are all speaking in.

Bell stays with the Padres. Probably still asking way too much for a 1 month rental.
