DETROIT -- They've just announced at Comerica Park tonight's game will not start on time due to "weather in the area." We had already surmised something was going because CC Sabathia and Max Scherzer were not warming up.
It was a beautiful, 71-degree day full of sunshine in the Motor City. But the forecast deteriorated during the day and rain that was supposed to come at 2 a.m. is now supposed to hit at 9:30 or so. The radar is pretty ominous.
Although it was clear at 8 p.m., the betting is that neither team wanted to burn their starting pitchers playing two innings and then stopping.
