Congratulations to the Detroit Free Press.
Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, sometimes it rains.
Sometimes it doesn’t even rain.
Max Scherzer stood in the Tigers’ locker room, looking all-too refreshed. He was supposed to pitch Game 4 on Wednesday night at Comerica Park. Now he was pulling on a sweatshirt. His dream deferred, he was going home — even though he was yet to see a raindrop.
“Have you ever been rained out of a game when it didn’t rain?” someone asked him
“Yeah. Last year in the ALCS, actually. We were in Texas. They called it at 3 o’clock. It never rained.”
“And I was supposed to pitch.”
(OK. That was a French reference. Either you got it or you didn’t. It’s a rainout column. We use what we can.)
