Tampa Bay Rays News and Links: Can Yankee Stadium actually host a game in April, or nah?

This is why baseball was made to be played under a roof!

Yesterday the Rays and Yanks got snowed out what was supposed to be the home opener for the Yankees (with the game rescheduled to today at 4:05 PM). Today the weather forecast from NOAA is expecting a 50% chance of rain for the Bronx, so stay tuned for whether this non-domed team can actually host a home game in April.

The snow day now sets the Rays up with Archer going today, Blake Snell tomorrow in this two game series, and double Bullpen Day against the Red Sox:

The Boston series will be an early test of the Rays pitching depth, the bullpen day plan, and the Durham shuttle. I’m sure plenty in the traditionalist world will be getting ready to gleefully submit their tweets and columns if just one of those TBD games goes pear shaped (or continue to ignore those games if there is no fruit shaped result).

At this point the Dodgers are basically Sisyphus if Sisyphus got very slightly worse with each attempt.
