Rainout in Motown…

Down came the rain and there was no game in Motown tonight.  The Yankees and the Tigers were set to square off in what could have been an elimination game for the Yankees but they received a reprieve due to inclement weather.  They will face off tomorrow at 3;30 pm.  In a drama filled pregame buildup, it was announced that Alex Rodriguez  and Curtis Granderson would not be a part of the starting lineup, with Swisher back in the lineup.  You have to wonder if Rodriguez may have possibly played his last game in the Yankees’ pinstripes???  Moreover, what about the wisdom of these decisions.  Sure A Rod has struggled in the postseason, but you also have to ask, don’t you go with what brought you to the dance?  All will be revealed in due time.

In the NLCS the Cards prevailed over the Giants 3-1 after a lengthy rain delay.  They take a 2-1 lead in that series.  A lot less drama going on in that series, just play ball!!

A bit of NBA news: Kevin Love of the Timberwolves suffered a broken hand and will be out 6 – 8 weeks.

Also on TV, since there was no baseball, the enticing new drama on ABC Nashville was on for one’s viewing pleasure.  Secrets were promised to be revealed, but after watching the premiere, I am not sure there were really ‘secrets” that were revealed.  Perhaps, it would be better described as secrets that were pretty evident were confirmed!

Until tomorrow…
