    I made the mistake of not mowing the lawn last Friday before the beginning of all this rain. By the time I can mow, it is going to be ugly with a lot of stopping to clear the clogged grass.

    Since it Chicago and not someone we play once a year, I hope they won't drag it out too long and then decide to postpone after making everyone wait.

    This is another reason why the Twins should move to Beverly Hills. Not a cloud in the sky here, and our next rain probably will not occur until October or so.

    But the Beverly Hills Twins might carry a bit different meaning.

    Hey Glunn. If this happens, I will probably have to move there.

    Would you mind if I set up shop in your back yard in a tent or a crudely constructed shack until I find some available real estate on the boardwalk of Venice Beach with the other panhandlers?

    Let me know.

    You can stay in my son's former room until we can find you a place in Malibu.

    The 8:30 is my guess, not LEN's and I live about 250 mi. from the TC.

    Having grown up watching games at the old Met, I can guarantee that this kind of rain would have postponed a game 100% of the time on the old fields. That said, I wonder how much rain the field can withstand and still be playable.

    Sand-based fields can take unbelievable amounts of rainfall, even in short periods of time, and still be playable. The only way games should be postponed on modern day professional fields are times when it's actually raining non stop. Fields of the old days were built like your home yard with native soils, hence why they could only take so much rain before becoming soft and mushy.

    There's quite a bit of gravel/other drainage material underneath most professional ball diamonds. It can hold a lot of water.

    Dominican Winter League games look like a fun time
    I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.
