Rain is headed to the St. Louis area Wednesday afternoon and evening and according to the National Weather Service forecast, there is an 80% chance of rain throughout the day.
Mo: At 1 o’clock, I’m going to have a meeting with Major League Baseball and determine whether or not to cancel the game early.
To translate a bit from the 140-character limitations of Twitter, “Mo” is Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak and “1 o’clock” is Central time, so for those of you on Eastern time, it’ll be at 2 p.m. ET.
MLB is a bit stung by its decision to postpone Game 2 of the ALCS in Texas because of a threat of rain that never materialized. However, they also likely don’t want to get into a situation where they’d have multiple rain delays and have to suspend Game 6.
There doesn’t seem to be a “best” decision either way, but if Game 6 is postponed, everything simply moves back a day, with Game 6 on Thursday and Game 7 (if necessary) on Friday in St. Louis; the forecast for those days, at the link above, is clear, but chilly; game-time temperatures would likely be in the 40s.
