10 Comments

The Pirates and Red Sox were supposed to finish their series this afternoon. Now they’re gonna have to wait, as the game has been postponed due to rain. It will be made up next Thursday, April 13.

There’s a lot of bad/wet/cold weather forecast in the Midwest and the East Coast today and tomorrow, so assume this won’t be the only adjustment to the schedule.

In other news, this is why there are a lot of days off early in the season.
