White Sox-Twins rained out

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

MINNEAPOLIS -- The White Sox' scheduled game against the Minnesota Twins on Tuesday night was postponed because of rain.

The makeup date has not been determined. It will not be during this series, which continues Wednesday night and Thursday afternoon. In all likelihood, the teams will play a doubleheader later in the season.

"You know what is funny? Where's the Metrodome when we need it?'' Sox manager Ozzie Guillen said.

The game was called about 50 minutes after the scheduled starting time, which Guillen and his players appreciated. It beat waiting till late into the evening and then having it called off.

Scheduled starters Gavin Floyd of the Sox and Carl Pavano of the Twins will pitch Wednesday.

"You just try to get going,'' Floyd said of waiting out te delay. "Just try to eat well, have some carbs. Mentally try to prepare yourself. Even though we were supposed to go at 8:15 maybe, I'll still try to mentally prepare even though I saw the radar and my meteorologist expertise said it was really an 11:15 start with a small window. But you just try to mentally prepare.''

White sox are a joke. One run in 2 games against the twins is just pathetic. Talk about flounder with runners in scoring position
