Oh well, game over. We scored four runs off Scherzer. Guess we won the World Series. Or qualify for the playoffs. Or something. I dunno.

There's never rain delays at Tropicana Field, or as I call it, the greatest stadium in baseball.

At least you can pretend we aren't in the COVID season from watching very normal looking Rays games.

When they said the Rays had the structure and all the fine details sorted out in order to win a World Series, we did not know the extent they would go to ensure they had home field advantage everywhere they went.

You do sometimes have to consult a map legend to figure out whether its a hr, double, or out though.

So whats the rule with rainouts this year? Is this an official game? Pick up where they left off? I thought I heard that rain delays were just going to be automatic postponements so people dont have to cram into the clubhouses?

the game is official, yeah. that part of the rule is the same as always. prior to this year, if a game was delayed before it became official it would be started over at a later date but this year any game delayed before it's official will be resumed from where they left off instead.

MLB has been putting out some pro BLM stuff lately and then they have Donald Trump and his pal Mariano Rivera make opening statements. So you know, striking a good balance.

no online radio stations will play MLB broadcasts, but if you actually have a radio, it's probably on the local ESPN affiliate station.

If you just want audio only, MLB audio is $20 for the year.
