It is now 3 1/2 hours after the scheduled start of the game and a total of 1/8" of rain has now fallen in Detroit - all in the last hour.http://msn.foxsports.com/mlb/story/rainout-of-alcs-game-4-le...This guy must have been somewhere else:"MLB postponed Game 4 because the forecast left doubt concerning the potential to play nine innings, under the rule that postseason games must be played to completion; heavy rain hit downtown Detroit in what would have been the middle innings"One can only presumed that MLB, terrified of its greatest marketing asset being swept out of the league championship, manufactured a rain delay and postponement to allow Sabathia to pitch on full rest tomorrow.He also disagrees with you on that point:"When Major League Baseball postponed Game 4 until Thursday, the Tigers benefited in two ways: CC Sabathia will no longer be available to pitch a potential Game 7 for the New York Yankees, and Detroit reliever Phil Coke — who temporarily ascended to the closer’s role amid Jose Valverde’s struggles — should be available to pitch in Game 4."Christina
