I'm told it's pouring in Yankee Stadium and with the forecast bad all night, the Yankees made an early call to postpone tonight's game against the Rays, banging it about 90 minutes before the scheduled first pitch.
So Derek Jeter remains stuck at 2,998 and only has two home games left before the All-Star Game. (Jeter pulled out of that today and so did A-Rod, as we noted on our previous post). The Rays did not agree to a doubleheader on Saturday like the Yankees wanted so the game will be made up later in the season.
The teams thus play Saturday and Sunday afternoons. If Jeter doesn't get two hits, he'll pick up the chase again next Thursday in Toronto. Bet there will be a ton of Yankees fans there if that's the case.
