When would they play a double header?
This is the ol Left Hander rounding third and heading for home.
Any word if they'll be playing or not?

WGN used to be the only way I could see the Reds. It always struck me as bizarre....that during rain delays they showed reruns of Bozo the Clown episodes.
/random childhood memory
Baseball is like church. Many attend, few understand
I wonder if they'd be more likely to call this one off since it's against a divisional foe who is here a couple more times this year. If this was against the Giants, they'd probably wait all night.
And it's it still in the Reds' hands since the game never officially started? Once a pitch is thrown then it's under umpire control.
Looks like on radar this current storm is moving out of the area but there are more storms filling in in central Indiana that were not on radar a short time ago. So it looks like there should be a break but more rain later.
Here is the current radar:
According to John Fay it is pretty much stopped raining at the park and the grounds crew is starting to work on the field
the latest update is they are still making a decision on whether to start. I think they are worried about the rain to the west but right now it is not raining and thyey are waiting through the window they may have to play
The 6 hour future radar thing on weather.com is showing the rest of the rain missing downtown Cincy ..
Matta = Really good
Would it benefit the Reds more to postpone the game and rest Phillips? Could this also help the Reds reset their starting pitchers rotation?
