UPDATE: Well, they got the game in, without any significant rain, though an obviously slick field. The Tigers suddenly find themselves in need of a three-game winning streak.
Oh, no, I am not forecasting who is going to win the World Series. This postseason has confounded forecasting. I am just wondering when they will be able to play the World Series. With the Cardinals leading the Series, 2-1, and Game 4 having been rained out last night in St. Louis, when might they be able to play again?
With Game 4 currently scheduled for tonight, let’s look at the forecast (caps theirs):
ST. LOUIS CITY-
INCLUDING THE CITY OF…ST LOUIS
1137 AM CDT THU OCT 26 2006
REST OF TODAY
CLOUDY WITH AREAS OF LIGHT RAIN AND DRIZZLE.
HIGH IN THE MID 50S. SOUTHEAST WIND AROUND 10 MPH. CHANCE OF
MEASURABLE PRECIPITATION 50 PERCENT.
OCCASIONAL LIGHT RAIN AND DRIZZLE. LOW AROUND 50.
LIGHT WIND IN THE EVENING BECOMING NORTHEAST AROUND 10 MPH AFTER
MIDNIGHT. CHANCE OF MEASURABLE PRECIPITATION 90 PERCENT.
OCCASIONAL RAIN. NEAR STEADY TEMPERATURE AROUND 50.
NORTH WIND 10 TO 15 MPH WITH GUSTS TO AROUND 25 MPH. CHANCE OF
RAIN 100 PERCENT.
MOSTLY CLOUDY WITH A 30 PERCENT CHANCE OF RAIN IN
THE EVENING…THEN PARTLY CLOUDY AFTER MIDNIGHT. LOW AROUND 40.
NORTHWEST WIND 10 TO 15 MPH.
NOT AS COOL. PARTLY CLOUDY. HIGH AROUND 60. NORTHWEST
WIND 10 TO 15 MPH.
PARTLY CLOUDY. LOW IN THE LOWER 40S.
Two more games need to be played in St. Louis. Game 6 is scheduled for Saturday in Detroit (unless both remaining games in St. Louis are won by the Cardinals), but it looks like it will be a challenge to get two games in before Saturday.
Oh, and if the Series ever gets to Detroit, things don’t look so great in the extended:
Saturday Night: A chance of snow showers. Mostly cloudy and breezy, with a low around 32. Chance of precipitation is 30%.
Sunday: A 30 percent chance of snow showers. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 41.
Sunday Night: Mostly cloudy, with a low around 34.
A Padresâ€“A’s (or Twins) Series would have been so much easier!
