Rain Delay Updates: 6:05 and we’re officially in a rain delay. Seems unlikely they play tonight, if you ask me…
7:05 PM and they’re pulling the tarp. I’m told they’re hoping to play within the hour…
It now sounds like the Indians and Yankees want five games, not three…so they’re apparently willing to play on Monday. Who the hell knows what’s going on at this point?
7:15 PM and the tarp is back on. Sweet.
7:20 PM and the tarp is off and being rolled up. Also sweet, but not in a sarcastic way this time.
Aaaaaaaand now it’s pouring. Don’t know what to tell you guys…
Thunder Thoughts: BDD Live returns with two amazing guests and an hour worth of talk about the nation’s pastime. With one team having punched its way into the postseason, more slots are up for grabs as the final three weeks of play are sure to be packed with intensity and excitement. Join host Eric SanInocencio as he covers that while also sitting down with one of the prized young arms in the New York Yankee organization.
Phil Hughes joins us in the opening segment, fresh off his start in the Governor’s cup for the Scranton-Wilkes Barre Yankees. Hughes began the 2008 season in the Yankees rotation, but a rib injury finds the talented hurler looking to work his way back up the Bronx. Hughes will comment on his rehab, a new offering he’s throwing and his times in the Big Apple.
BDD Live’s second segment brings in another special guest, as ESPN’s own Orestes Destrade will step in. Destrade serves in a variety of capacities for the worldwide leader, appearing on Baseball Tonight and co-hosting SportsNation, a radio program that airs at 3 p.m. ET weekdays on ESPN Radio. The Big “O” will share his thoughts on the hotly contested races remaining, and the records that may fall in the season’s final month.
