Houston Street, We Have A Problem

So, it's raining in New York. It's raining a lot.

CC Sabathia just barely made it through the top of the second, and finished with a flourish as he racked up his fourth strikeout already. At that point -- 9:06 Eastern Daylight Time -- the umpires stopped the game and summoned the grounds crew with the tarpaulin.

Initially, it looked like the heavy rains might pass quickly, with a substantial rainless window on the way.

Storms are funny, though; they're dynamic, and like to surprise you. Here's the latest radar, and that window has disappeared ...

Again, these things do change with little warning. But to our uneducated eyes, it looks like the Bronx is in for a lot of rain for some hours yet. Will Commissioner Selig allow the contest to resume at midnight? Pushing the conclusion past two in the morning? That seems highly doubtful, so at the moment there seems to be a real good chance that this one gets called.

What happens next? When would this game be made up? How would the teams' pitching plans be affected?

Stay tuned...
