Rain in Chicago

It's apparently raining hard in Chicago, so it's unlikely that the game with start on time. The Yankees have a night game in Cleveland tomorrow night. For some reason, the Yankees didn't get a day getaway game.

I'll be around with updates if the game is played. Because it's the Yankees' last trip to Chicago, they'll probably wait as long as possible to play.

Update - 8:15 p.m.: Peter Abraham says that the rain is expected to stop in about an hour and they hope to play at 9:30.

Update - 8:35 p.m.: Scratch the 9:30 comment. The tarp is off the field and it looks like they should begin play shortly.

Update - 8:45 p.m.: The game has begun.

Update - 9:35 p.m.: With the Yankees leading 3-0, the game is in a rain delay. Hopefully it's quick so Phil Hughes can continue to be used.

Update - 10:20 p.m.: The tarp is off and the game is set to begin. Hughes is out and is being replaced by Ross Ohlendorf.

It was a small sample size for Hughes, but he definitely showed signs of improvement. In his two innings, he struck out a batter and gave up one hit. He only threw 23 pitches, 15 of which went for strikes.
