O's-Marlins gametimes announced

Recommended Posts

If tomorrow's game is rained out, presumably Thursday will also be a doubleheader.

Hopefully the storm has passed by tomorrow evening.

So if it goes as scheduled, there will be a doubleheader Wednesday where we are the home team for the first game and the road team for the second game.

Another first in the history of baseball.

Was going to suggest that two double headers would give us a really good chance at seeing the first 7IP CG pitched, but it looks like Trvor Bauer did that the other day

And there have been others in rain shortened games.   The 7 inning games starting yesterday are just the first SCHEDULED 7 inning games in MLB history.   There have been hundreds of rain shortend 5, 6, 7, and 8 inning games over the years, and I'm sure some of them were complete games.

Are those credited as CG? Was going to add the caveat of "scheduled" as you mention above, but was unsure of whether a pitcher is credited the CG in such an instance

I think so but not 100% sure

From MLB: 

Complete Game (CG)Definition
A pitcher earns a complete game if he pitches the entire game for his team regardless of how long it lasts. If the game is shortened by rain or if it lasts into extra innings, it counts as a complete game if the pitcher was the only pitcher to record an appearance for his team.

Haven't the Mets and Yankees played double headers before where one is the home team in game 1 and the visitor in game 2?

Yankees have already postponed tomorrow night's game due to the hurricane.  They'll play a Wednesday doubleheader just as we will.

Of course the hurricane hits NY later than here.  The rain may stop here by mid afternoon so the "only" thing we have to do to play tomorrow night is drain 5"-7" of rain from the field by game time.

Sounds like the rain will stop around 4 PM, but the field will probably still be a mess - seems unlikely they'll get the game in - unless there's some heroics with the draining of the field.  

Everyone get a bucket!

OPACY has fantastic drainage.     But it will be challenging.   3.5 - 4.5 inches of rain expected from Monday night through Tuesday afternoon.

Current forecast says rain will stop between 1 and 2, and the sun will be up around 4.  Sounds like we got a decent shot of getting in a game tonight.

Storm stayed east, I would be very surprised if they don't get tonight's game in.

Rain totals will be 2-3 inches, no problem clearing that much rain.

I went on the tour last year and I believe they said the outfield can drain 16 inches of rain an hour. That number sounds insane but I’m fairly certain that’s what they said.

Even if that’s inaccurate the tour is well worth it.
