Texas Rangers. Boston, June 9-11. Vast flooding expected to occur.
I think the solution is simple.
OK, so we can’t blame them, per se, but let’s just say we’re keeping an eye on the first-place Rangers and the way they disrupt New England weather patterns upon their Logan arrival.
What are the odds the Red Sox and Rangers get all four in this weekend? Originally scheduled as a three-game series, the Sox and Rangers will play a day-night doubleheader tomorrow after a pair of games last month were rained out between the two clubs, thanks to the Mother's Day weekend storm.
But with more rain in the forecast for tonight, might we looking at double servings Saturday and Sunday? Now that ought to help the bullpen, eh?
It's doubtful, nobody wants to stack that much baseball into a two-day period, but another rainout would cause a lot of logistical issues. This will be one instance when the Red Sox should receive some slack for their “waiting it out, have another $7 sausage” approach to calling games.
By the way, the National Weather Service forecast reads like this: Periods of showers, mainly before midnight. The rain could be heavy at times. Low around 55. North wind around 9 mph, with gusts as high as 22 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100 percent. New rainfall amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible.
Well, that sounds like fun. Thanks, Texas.
