View Full Version : I can get us a rainout

The forecast for Tuesday looks like there could be some rain in the area. Since the Reds played 18 innings, used 3 starters multiple innings, Ross caught all 18 innings and Jr. played the whole game, perhaps it would be fortuitous for the Reds to call a rainout on Tuesday even if there's a hint of rain. Sure, they will have to hand out rain checks but in reality, only about 14K are going to show up for the Bucs anyway. Plus it's easy to make up since PIT will be back in town again. With the off day on Monday and another off day on Tuesday, the rotation can get back on track.

Sounds like a plan, don't tell the Pirates

Would that delay Jay Bruce's future arbitration one more day? Does the clock start when he gets called up or when he plays? :D

Maybe you'd better wash the car today anyway, Chip. ;)
