Boy, the weather forecast looks like this could be a total-series washout. Not what we need to continue the momentum from last night's hard-fought comeback win. At this rate, by the time Clement pitches again, Matsui's wrist could be healed :unsure:

From what I've heard they've got a slight chance tonight, virtually no chance tomorrow and Sunday looks grim. Both teams have an off day next time Texas comes to town so my guess is they'll do whatever they can to get at least one of these games in and between a doubleheader and the offday play the other two then.

Norm: Great I'll drop it in the mail, that way I know you'll never get it.

Joe -- do you not know how to add a signature or are you on some sort of bizarre personal strike against them?
Take care.

I know how. Haven't bothered to do it yet. Want to contemplate my options and get it right.

Joe, that would be gruesome.:ph43r: If I am reading the schedule correctly and that scenario occurs, it would lead to a string of over 30 days in a row without a break, including 2 interleague stretches. At that point in the season (June), can't the MLBPA put their foot down and say "No way?" I realize Texas doesn't come in here again. I seem to remember when we were in the middle of that horrific stretch last year with the makeup, it was only allowed because we were so close to the end of the season.

What do you think?

I believe the limit is 18 consecutive days without a break. The MLBPA can certainly put their foot down though in situations like that they usually concede the issue.

I think a lot depends on this weekend. If they can play two this weekend I think they just do a double dip next time around and they're set. Things get hinky if they only play one or, God forbid, none, this weekend. If anyone has tickets to tonight's game, I would get ready to get wet because my guess is that they are going to do anything they can to get the game in. :P

Yeah, my first experience with the clickable smiley wasn't as exciting as I'd hoped.

Joe, your hesitation in setting up a sig is not 'bizarre.' You hold out until you're ready.

I see that underneath the smilies you can click on a link for 'BB Code Help.' I think that's an excellent idea, and look forward to the implementation of the The Chimp Code Help function.

Joe, trust me on this, it's all about the ninjas. :ph43r: :ph43r: :ph43r:

More than worth effort.
Take care.
