Hurricane Irene Strikes Fear Into MLB


It’s unfortunate that God doesn’t like baseball as much as I do. He’s attacking the east coast with his spinning tropical winds, causing four games to be postponed.

The Yankee/Oriole doubleheader will be moved (one game will be added to Sunday’s scheduled games, and the other game on September 8th).

The Mets/Braves Saturday and Sunday games have been postponed and will be played as a doubleheader on September 8th.

The Marlin/Phillies Saturday game has been postponed as well, although as of this update no rescheduled date has been set.

What does this mean? If you’re making a playoff push and you have players in these games, you could be in trouble. Hopefully you have a few backups you can plug-in. If you’ve already clinched a playoff spot, this could be a blessing in disguise. Hurricane Irene guarantees players from the Yankees, Orioles, Braves, and Mets will play extra games in the first week of the playoffs. We’ll have to wait and see when the Marlins and Phillies will make up their game, but it’ll likely be next week when the Phils travel to Florida.
