Looks like the Phils game ome will be cancelled too. The are in a rain delay and I don't know why they just haven't already called it off.

On Thome Signing next year, unless he can play first one a week or so I don't see him on a NL team.

Finally officially called off.
With them already having 31 games in the 30 days starting Monday. It looks like they mint have to either play the missed games on the other teams field or not get in all 162 games, although that's unlikely.

Edit to change it is now 33 games in 31 days now.

Yikes. Sucks for them. As I understand it, it's possible that some of those games won't be made up if they don't impact the playoffs. If they can open up that lead on everyone else, they might get some relief.

If the lead hangs around 6 they will need to play the games but if it was around ten like with the Brewers probably not.

The 4 game set with the Brewers in 2 weeks could decide that.

Re: MLB Weekend, August 27-28, 2011 "Irene Is Not One of Jeter's Girlfriends" edition

Why are they waiting so long to call the 1st Oak/Bos game? Red Sox lead 9-2. It would look silly to call game one and then start game #2. Thats why day night doubleheaders are beyond stupid.
Can this game be made up on Monday or does Oakland have another game scheduled? The last thing MLB wants too do is have the Yankees play twice on Monday while the Red Sox wait,well rested,for the upcoming Yankee series. The Yankees bitch that they have only one off day in September ,but rosters are expanded,that way Girardi can make 5 pitching changes in the 5th innning of an 8-1 game. Talk about over-managing. Girardi takes the cake.

Game is supposed to re-start at 5:35.
Oakland is in Cleveland on Monday, so the game can't be rescheduled then.

Re: MLB Weekend, August 27-28, 2011 "Irene Is Not One of Jeter's Girlfriends" edition

They are going to resume game #1(Oak/Bos) and then let the fans stay for game #2(if there is a game #2). So it is a straight doubleheader.
MLB can stick their day/night doubleheaders up their ass.Play straight DHs and charge double admission. If players wouldn't step out of the box after every pitch and if pitchers would pitch within 20 seconds of receiving the baseball ,the games wouldn't last forever.
Bud Selig loves long baseball games because the only thing he's done too speed up the game is having the bat boy have the batters new bat ready should the other one be broken.

Cool. The Red Sox will have 2 days off in a row while the Yankees will more than likely(not 100 percent official) play twice on Monday(can't see them playing twice tomorrow-rain forecast for Baltimore in the afternoon) unless MLB reschedules one game for Sept. 8th,which would make that a doubleheader.

I didn't realize until just now (start of the game) that the Giants have Eric Surkamp starting today.

Calling him up from AA!

Cleveland and Chicago won't let the Tigers run away. I can't decide which team has a better chance of beating us this year when we lose the last 7 games of the season.

We should, at least, have a Cy Young in Detroit for the first time since 1984. If I've forgotten someone, I apologize, but I think Willie Hernandez was the last Tiger pitcher to win it. Seems like a lifetime ago.

Wish it didn't take the Giants extras to beat the frikkin' Astros. Good shit nonetheless

Giants win again.

Well, to be fair they just took the lead against the Astros in the bottom of the 7th... 2-1. But I'm going to put it in the win column.

Not so fast. May go into extra innings here. Dbacks going into the bottom of the 8th with a 2 run lead.

Dbacks are going to win the division; when you lose games because a crappy hitter like Jason Michaels beats you, it's not your year.

Again my magic worked. I make a bombastic statement on a message board and it comes back top bite me in the ass.

Dbacks lead by 4 games.
