Rays weather report ....

UPDATE, 3:15:  Wet at the stadium, too. Windy and a bit cold actually, as well. And it's June. Ha. Todd Kalas is sitting next to me and he's blowing on his hands -  it's that chilly. Nothing official still, but the Some of the Yankees writers seem to think the rain will clear out later tonight and there will be a game, but it may stay very late. Others are not that optimistic. 

The Yankees are going to want to play tonight, because they know how banged up and shorthanded the Rays are, and it's a pretty safe bet Evan Longoria isn't going to get on a wet field. The Rays would probably prefer waiting for that Sept. 10 common off-day.

NEWS: Wet.

It's been raining pretty much steady since I got to New York late this morning, and looking out the window of my midtown hotel room, it doesn't appear that it's going to stop anytime soon.

The forecast calls for 100 percent chance of rain today diminishing to 80 percent tonight. And the current radar map is green (for rain) over the entire New York area, with the soggy weather extending all the way to West Virginia.

So if your plans for the night were to watch David Price duel C.C. Sabathia, you might want to start thinking about a Plan B, though there likely won't be a decision for hours.

Just heard a couple things - the Yankees are likely to wait into the night before making a decision since the rain is supposed to eventually clear out, and if there was a postponement, the makeup may be in September since both teams are off Sept. 10 - the day after they play a three-game series in New York.
