This just in: It’s not raining

PHILADELPHIA—It’s game time here and it’s not raining. In fact, it hasn’t for a couple of hours. But it’s just as well MLB decided not to play tonight, because the conditions here are brutal. It’s bitterly cold and a steady 20 mph wind (with gusts to nearly 40 mph) is making it extremely unpleasant to even step outside, let alone try to play baseball or watch from the stands.

It’s not going to be all that much more pleasant tomorrow, it sounds like, but at least the wind is supposed to die down a bit and the rain/snow in the area is supposed to move out before evening.

“As we stand here now I think the chances are very high that we’ll play,” Rays executive vice president Andrew Friedman said a few hours ago.

Why the indecision on the travel day???  It was announced in advance that there would be no travel day if Saturday’s game had been rained out.  Why is this different?  What’s going on?  Bud has the opportunity to affect the pitching rotation.  Don’t Rays fans and stadium personnel want to know whether it will be Thursday or Friday?
