Rain out updates

Updates with the Rain out

Game 1 of the ALDS between the Tigers and Yankees was suspended due to rain.

The game will pick up in the bottom of the second inning Saturday at 8:37 p.m. ET. Game 2 will now be played on Sunday at 3:07 p.m. ET., which was previously scheduled to be an off-day. As a result, there will be no off-day before the teams resume the series Monday in Detroit. No word on when CC Sabathia or Justin Verlander will pitch next, but it’s safe to say neither will pitch twice during the series.

Ivan Nova will pitch when play resumes Saturday in Game 1 of the ALDS against the Tigers.

Morning Bits: Teixeira, Girardi, A-Rod, Bullpen, Burnett

Well today is the day most Yankee fans couldn’t wait for.  Tonight the Yankees enter the postseason.  Verlander vs C.C.    Should be one hell of a game.  I hope everyone enjoys the weekend and enjoys the game tonight.

and here are your morning links.

*Mark Teixeira does not like the idea of adding more playoff teams.

* Good news Girardi says A-Rod can play everyday in the playoffs.

* MLB/TBS announce playoff schedule and announcers.

* Yankees bullpen is the key to October run.

* Girardi will rely on Burnett out of the bullpen in the ALDS.

I kinda like the ALDS Logo alot.

Last night while other teams where worrying about if they were getting in or not getting in The Yankees ground crew was doing this below.   I am not worried with the Yankees losing towards the end to Tampa as most of the regulars got much needed rest and the rotation is now set.
