Rainout on Getaway Night + HDLR Tonight

With the Yankees ahead 3-1 in the top of the third, the rains came, came again, and washed out the nighttime getaway game for the Yanks before today’s make-up double-header against the Mets that will in part kick off their three-game series. Although it was nice all day, and the Yanks rarely play day getaway games, they had to be scheduled with yet another night game to end a series. It’s all about the advertising and gate bucks, although one suspects that a day game with the Yanks would be a big draw in the summer. Absolute crap. The game will now be made up Thursday, July 10–more inconveniences, coming additionally from interleague play.  If nothing else, the rain-out came with no attempts to restart the game, ensuring that today’s double-header, and not last night’s game even beforehand, will tax the bullpen.

I’ll open up the HDLR for tonight’s game, which will be at the Shea Toilet at 8:10 ET. Hope to see everyone then.
