Wet morning ...
The rain has stopped in Detroit, the skies are clearing, the tarp has been removed and the grounds crew is preparing the field. Nothing official yet, but it looks like first pitch will be around 1:30 or 2.
It's already rained heavily once this morning at Comerica Park, and based on the radar it's going to be wet for a while.
How long the teams wait to see if it clears up will be interesting because it's a hectic day in downtown Detroit, with the Lions playing their preseason opener tonight against the Bengals across the street at Ford Field.
If the Rays and Tigers were to get rained out, the only remaining common off day is Sept. 20 - which would be at the end of an already-long Boston-Seattle-Anaheim trip for the Rays.
