At this moment, there’s a 42% chance of rain, at game-time, for the Yankees ’09 opener against the Orioles. Knowing this, I wonder if General Joe will once again try the “Save-A-Starter” trick that he attempted with Ian Kennedy and Brian Bruney during Game 9 of last season?
It would be a shame to lose CC Sabathia’s first start due to him starting in bad weather and then having to come out, or have the game called, because of rain. In any event, that’s today’s wild thought.
What do you think – should Girardi try it again, today, given the weather forecast?
