Rain Delayed Gratification

Bad weather up and down the East Coast has put both the Yankees (starting their final stretch of 7 road games in Baltimore) and Boston (at home vs. Toronto) on what we hope is temporary hold for the evening. If and when things get going, the Big Unit will go for the Yanks, and Schilling for the Sox, two pitchers who may well meet with the season on the line next week.

We hope things get started soon; when they do, consider this your open thread for all the night’s action.

  • Ugh, Sox postponed, doubleheader tomorrow. Not only does this wreck the Schilling-Johnson match-up this weekend, it means Wake will have to pitch on three days rest. If anybody can do it, he can, but still, hardly optimal.

  • Play Ball! Sox may be done for the night, but the Yanks take the field now. We’ll see if they can get in 5.

  • Well, that was quick. Note RJ has already begun warm-ups. Don’t know what that means if this game doesn’t happen. And of course there’s the danger of him going 4 in a game that gets called. Not so good.

  • Ugh. That pitch to Sheff was a good half foot inside. But we must in any case complain about this lineup. We don’t like super-slow Giambi in the three slot, and we don’t like Ruben Sierra in the lineup anywhere. Joe!

  • MVP! 3-0.

  • 6-0! Okay, lineup not so bad….

  • RJ hasn’t struck anyone out yet. I am not able to watch the game, except on MLB gameday on my computer. What’s he throwing? Does he look okay?

  • Joe, he’s been hit pretty well. He’s getting ahead of batters at the very least but this is definitely not his A-game.

  • Not his A game perhaps, but the O’s lineup is weak, he’s throwing strikes, and he’s been throwing reasonably hard (if you believe the Baltimore gun, which has had him up at 97 several times).

  • Woof. The beat goes on. Will this end before 3?

  • Wow, 11-0, Proctor just went 1-2-3, six outs to go and Boston plays a double-header tomorrow. Four pieces of good news in one sentence.

  • Allan Embree. Sharpen those scorecard pencils.

  • it’s completely unreasonable for Torre to continue to rely on Embree.
