It's been raining all day here in NYC and as I look out the window now around 4:45 pm EST, all I see are umbrellas with feet and shiny wet streets. Indeed, the Yanks and Sox have been rained out, which is a shame given the high the Yankees are riding after the last two days. Then again, there's no harm in basking in the glory of last night's contest and giving Cap'n Grumpypants an extra day to let his thumb heal.
No make-up plans have been announced just yet. I'll update this post with that information as well as the impact the rainout will have on the Yankee rotation (will they skip Chacon's turn on Friday to give him another rehab start?) when I know more.
Update: The game will be made up during the one remaining series between the two teams in the Bronx, turning the September 15-17 three-game series into a four-game set via an as yet to be determined double header. Torre meanwhile has decided not to skip anyone in the rotation, though there are conflicting reports about whether or not Mike Mussina will start as scheduled on Saturday, pushing Shawn Chacon to Sunday, or in turn on Sunday following Chacon's return on Saturday.
