Per ESPN... Game 1 in NY will not be played... rained out.

I'm sure they'd rather not even try to play the game after what happened with Lidle. Better to just wait it out a day.

Edit: MLB saying ALCS will play game 2 tonight.

I'm sure that might have something to do with it and yes, it may be out of respect or shock or whatever... but if I were Lidle or his family or anyone in the MLB, I would much rather have the game go on - in his honor or something.

*shrugs* just my opinion.

It's also very rainy there, so that's part of it too.

Well, yeah, I would imagine. And that's the offical reason, but I have a feeling that in the back of their minds, this is part of why they're not playing tonight.
