NLCS Game 2, ALCS Game 2: Brewers/Cardinals, Rangers/Tigers

You wouldn't think they'd need to: Grounds crew members water the field after Game Two of the American League Championship Series at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington was postponed due to inclement weather on October 9, 2011 in Arlington, Texas. (Photo by Harry How/Getty Images)

So let me get this straight. On Saturday night, the weather forecast looked dire for the Dallas area, with thunderstorms and heavy rain expected, but they started on time and played anyway, with the result being two rain delays, starting pitchers having to be lifted early, and a game that ended at midnight local time.

Sunday, with a lesser chance of rain, they called things off about four hours before game time -- at which time the rain completely left the area. They could have easily played Sunday night. File this under "You Can't Win No Matter What You Do".

Fortunately, this afternoon's forecast for Arlington, Texas is for sunshine and temperatures in the upper 70s, perfect for baseball.

Tonight in Milwaukee, it's also supposed to be nice, but I presume the roof will be closed at Miller Park simply because it will be a coolish fall evening.

I hope you're as amused as I am about the photo of the grounds crew watering the wet grass in Texas.

This is the only thread I'm posting for today's game. If you need overflows due to extra innings or rain delays, post them in the fanshot section.
