    Tell me about as I sit at home in Michigan. I'm north of Detroit and we're getting ice along with 50 mph wind gusts. They possibly could have played one game tonight between 7-8 p.m. as moisture dissipates into a few showers, but I doubt they'll get one game in on Sunday as the rain forecast is even worse until about 8-9 p.m. Sunday night.

    Maybe play a split doubleheader Sunday Night. Start the first game at 9pm. Then the second game at 2am. Then cross your fingers the first game does not go to bonus cantos.
    Do not fear, all we want to do is talk.

    Only words, and then your thoughts.

    Play all divisional games over the first month with the 5th team playing at Seattle, Oakland, Anaheim, or Houston or comparable interleague road games. Problem solved.

    MLB should mandate every new stadium in rain prone cities to have a retractable roof.

    The fact none of these stadiums don't have roofs is pathetic.

    Another significant amount of revenue lost due to weather.

    Yet the head honchos call it a "freak weather pattern" and something that "god will take care of." Hey dummies, Jesus ain't curing weather anytime soon.

    While I agree with the concept, MLB would need to fund these roofs, as the owners are not paying for them out of their pocket.
    Forgive me for taking the Contrarian view

    That's a lot of money, you're talking about billions of dollars.

    Have they officially cancelled both games? The Tigers official website says tonight's game is still on. Accuweather says 42 degrees and cloudy at game time, with a "real feel" of 40 degrees.

    i think a level of bureaucracy is resulting in a ridiculously high construction costs. I think construction costs could be cut in half with a proper audit

    A level of corruption in building costs, sure, but it's still the reality as to why building retractable roofs in multiple stadiums isn't going to happen.

    I read the same.. it will be long sleeve batters wear tonight for sure.. that is if the ice melts (which it can by help of heated blowers of some kind..) I am with yas tho June 4th might be a warmer day...(the only thing is that game will be "squeezed" in between two scheduled games on the teams day off)..
    Yankees Are Still the Best in the MLB! Better than ALL the Rest!!!!!

    Both games have now been postponed. The Yankees will play a split DH in Detroit on June 4th.

    Will everyone have to wear number 42 in one of those games?

    Perhaps baseball someday can honor Jackie Robinson in a less confusing way.
