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.
