A Roster Move, Rain, And Maybe MORE Rain To Come.....Chicago Weather Link

Thursday's game in the Windy City was rained out, forcing a day/night doubleheader to be scheduled for today. But the threat of more rain, one to two inches of it, may jeopardise not only those games, but the rotation that has been so carefully set up for the three game set at Yankee Stadium starting Tuesday. If the weather does NOT wash out today's contests, it STILL will be Daisuke, Beckett and Schilling in the Bronx. But everything would be up in the air if the clouds do not cooperate and the rain does not cease. That would be bad news for Red Sox fans because the Yankees have scheduled Pettitte, Clemens and Wang. Click on the title of this post for the latest forecast and the current conditions in the Windy City.

Jon Lester was temporarily assigned to the Portland Sea Dogs for his next start to make room for lefty Javy Lopez. He will be back next Friday when the rosters expand. Julian Tavarez will take his place in the rotation. He looked great in his last start, going seven good innings. Lester has been inconsistant, and needs more seasoning, whether it be in Portand or Pawtucket.
