9/7: Indians vs. Rangers
A Happy Labor Day to one and all. The tarp is on the field, but no word yet on whether the weather will affect the current 6:05 p.m. ET start time to tonight’s tilt at Progressive Field. Weather-permitting, you can catch the action on WTAM and STO.
UPDATE: As of 5:10 p.m. ET, it’s coming down pretty hard. Looking less and less likely tonight’s game will start on time.
UPDATE No. 2 (7:35 p.m. ET): It’s still raining, and the Indians are still hoping to get this one in. I had heard speculation that we might be looking at a start time around 8:30 or so, if the rain cooperates. Stay tuned.
