Do they get the game in today? It looks like the rain stops later, but the question is how much water is on the field from all the rain.

It seems to be raining harder now than it was earlier(I'm in Little Italy). I'm thinking there will be a delay.

Of any field I've ever seen the Cell could take a Monsoon and the field would still be fine.

If only we could get rainouts every day from now until Konerko and TCQ are healthy, we'd be able to stay in the race.

Well, mini-gooch is getting his nap in at home instead of at the park. Hope this one gets played, was gonna be his first game.

Still raining pretty well, but I'm all the way on the north side. The delay gave me a chance to get home in time to see it. Looking forward to seeing Gavin pitch.

This game won't start until 2:45 earliest local time, IMO. They should get it in, but I won't be surprised if it's delayed that long or even until 3. They still need to do warmups at this rate...

Looks like it's still raining, so probably not starting til 3:30-4.

I'd say at least another hour as well based on this (awesome) radar

If it gets called, the PTC will be the rain based on our lineup today

Rain has stopped by me. Do I head over?

That moving NexRad map actually makes me hopeful they'll be able to pull the tarp in the next 20 minutes or so. If they haven't called it yet, they should be starting in the next hour almost for sure.

Why would they wait 20 minutes more? The rain stopped 10 minutes ago...
