Looks dicey but with this being the only trip Florida makes, I think they may try to wait things out for at least a while.

By the looks of it, they can wait it out all they want, but its not happening.

That would mean a double header tomorrow (I would think), and in Cincinnati, I imagine it would be the twinight variety...first game at 5:05, second game 30 minutes after.

Just a guess based on the one I had to run a couple of years ago here.

If it gets called, I bet they skip Belisle and leave the rotation like it is currently set up for the weekend series against Cleveland.

My guess is if this gets rained out (which looks like a good bet, sadly) Florida will return on August 18th.

Looking at this radar I don't see how they are going to play tonight.

The Indians may have something to say about that.

Rain looks to be lifting from SW to NE so if that is the case the big slog to the west would miss Cincy

Good day for a rainout. Bullpen needed a night off. Dusty had a scary looking lineup going tonight.

Stupid rain.

Hopefully they skip Belisle.

No kidding. i'm going down Friday and Sunday and was hoping to get to see the kids throw. If I go down there tomorrow and have to watch Belisle, there's no amount of free grilling aprons that will satisfy me.

KLW, what's the rules on how long the game can wait to start. I've heard the home team has advantage. Until the Home Manager gives in the lineup the umps must. There must be some rule that follows that one but I've just got to know. I tried to start a thread but the response hasn't come through and I want to go to bed.

Rule 4.01 to 4.02
33
4.00—Starting and Ending a Game.
4.01 Unless the home club shall have given previous notice that the game has been postponed or will be delayed in starting, the umpire, or umpires, shall enter the playing field five minutes before the hour set for the game to begin and proceed directly to home base where they shall be met by the managers of the opposing teams. In sequence—
(a) First, the home manager shall give his batting order to the umpire-in-chief, in duplicate.
(b) Next, the visiting manager shall give his batting order to the umpire-in-chief, in duplicate.
(c) The umpire-in-chief shall make certain that the original and copies of the respective batting orders are identical, and then tender a copy of each batting order to the opposing manager. The copy retained by the umpire shall be the official batting order. The tender of the batting order by the umpire shall establish the batting orders. Thereafter, no substitutions shall be made by either manager, except as provided in the rules.
(d) As soon as the home team’s batting order is handed to the umpire-in-chief the umpires are in charge of the playing field and from that moment they shall have sole authority to determine when a game shall be called, suspended or resumed on account of weather or the condition of the playing field.
Rule 4.01 Comment: Obvious errors in the batting order, which are noticed by the umpire-in-chief before he calls “Play” for the start of the game, should be called to the attention of the manager or captain of the team in error, so the correction can be made before the game starts. For example, if a manager has inadvertently listed only eight men in the batting order, or has listed two players with the same last name but without an identifying initial and the errors are noticed by the umpire before he calls “play,” he shall cause such error or errors to be corrected before he calls “play” to start the game. Teams should not be “trapped” later by some mistake that obviously was inadvertent and which can be corrected before the game starts.
4.02 The players of the home team shall take their defensive positions, the first batter of the visiting team shall take his position in the batter’s box, the umpire shall call “Play” and the game shall start.
