From the AP:

Game 4 was postponed Wednesday night because of showers and will be made up Thursday at 7:27 p.m. CDT, potentially sending the World Series into scheduling chaos. More rain was expected the next two days, and nobody was certain when the Detroit Tigers and St. Louis Cardinals would play again.

“They’re going to be dicey,” said Jimmie Lee Solomon, executive vice president of baseball operations in the commissioner’s office. “There is about a 70 percent chance of rain tomorrow. It’s going to be light rain. We don’t know whether or not that rain will linger, like it did tonight.”

Game 5 at Busch Stadium was pushed back to Friday night, which was supposed to be a day off in the Series. And it doesn’t look much better this weekend in Detroit, with a forecast of rain and cold.

Maybe they ought to think about playing these games in Florida or in a dome, like the NFL does with the Super Bowl? Then again, I’ve been arguing for years that they ought to play the Super Bowl in the Northeast, despite the February cold. So maybe I ought to just make up my mind.
