Ah yes...the "All-Righty" lineup ('cept Bourn). Wedgies mustache twiches in approval.

Moore has been lights out...Kluber needs to bring his A+ game today.

Or have Moore's routine screwed up

Well, we look likely to start/stop/start this game as the 2nd part of the front rolls through. That is certainly gonna be a challenge on both starters.

Curious is if we see a loose strike zone tonight as Blue tries to squeeze a game out of the evening. Of course, every-time I say that the games are called like game 7 of the WS. Reverse psychology I guess.

/Anyone know if there are saber-metrics based on which Ump is calling the game? I mean, I could see the hyper-fantasy types starting various players based on a particular umps zone. I.e. - Reynolds strikes out 5.9% more with umps that call the outside breaking pitch a strike.

Any word on the weather, timing of the delay, when they'll next check in? I'm coming around to MLB Advanced Media, with the iPhone and iPad apps, etc. But if there's one thing left they don't do well, it's advising on the status of rain delays. If you miss the Radio Network's periodic check-in, you're just adrift.

The good news is that the rain is moving fast and will appear to end...the bad news is that the end is currently located in Mansfield. So we're looking at a 1 1/2 delay.

I'm sure Maddon is really pleased.

:clap: Somebody buy that boy a beer!



STILL on rain delay at almost midnight!?! A whole 1 1/2 innings completed. Both of the pitchers shot for the night - good for us with Moore gone but I hate sacrificing Kluber tonight. I know TB is up here ONCE this year but for crying out loud, decide something already!

Ooo, Ooo, start time at 12:10 AM!!! Are you still with me? ;-) ;) :wink:

Boy are we really missing some Lefty pen action. Myers would have been ideal for a night like tonight.

/Manning just admitted they are hitting the sauce. :partyers: Underwood with a nervous laugh...

Shit, everyone in that stadium should be drinking except the Umps.

Underwood and Manning are much better after a few cold ones. Their conversation is so much looser. And they are really talking good baseball.

Is there a time limit/where they would have to call the game just due to it being too late. For some reason I've always thought it was 2am.

If I remember correctly, the American League used to have a rule that you couldn't start an inning after 1 am local time, but they did away with that quite a number of years ago.

I am by no means a Moneyball/Sabermetric guy when it comes to most facets of this game, but I must say that after 46 years, I have officially seen enough Indians get caught stealing to last a lifetime.

I stayed up till 2:56AM for THIS? :gah: Two lousy runs? No, that wasn't the two reasons we lost. More like Barnes (5 in the 3rd) and Hell-I mean Hill (3 in the 9th). Had those two not choked we would have won 2-1.

Hopefully it doesn't rain tomorrow starting from 1:00PM till we're done.

That was brutal.

Forecast for tomorrow is terrible, hence why they were trying so hard to get today's game in. Severe storms on tap. I, naturally, have tickets. 9 hours down there tonight, who knows how many tomorrow.

I was told by an Indians employee that they were operating under the high likelihood of tomorrow's game being postponed and there was no way that they wanted to have to make up two games.
