For 2020, in case of inclement weather, they will just play the game on MLB The Show anyway. :)

Will it be archived so I can watch it tomorrow?

I don't think the heavy stuff is going to come down for awhile yet.  I say keep playing.

Another double header coming up. Oh joy. Another bullpen game.

It’s supposed to start raining 15-30 minutes before game time and it doesn’t appear it will clear up entirely until late into the night.

MLB, due to COVID, is trying to avoid starting a game that won’t go five innings and they don’t want players sitting together in a clubhouse for a rain delay.

I still think they won’t play.

If it looks iffy, I hope that they decide on a bullpen game tonight but that Cleveland uses up Bieber in a game that doesn't end up counting.

 

On the other hand, if it ends up as a double-header, Cleveland might not have to use their bullpen and their starters are scary.

 

If they were in Portland, they wouldn't be playing because you would lose a popup in the smoky haze. :(

Triples are more fun than home runs; stolen bases are more fun than strikeouts; singles are more fun than walks.
