The Minnesota Twins and Detroit Tigers are set to kick-off a three-game series on Friday night that has major playoff implications, but bad weather in Detroit has put the breaks on those plans for the time being. Detroit is currently being soaked by rain, and it doesn't look like that's going to change.
Just asked #Tigers GM about when the window might open for the game. He said, "Not for a while. A long time." #Twins— Dana Wakiji (@FSDwakiji) September 21, 2012
It's likely that the game would have been postponed under normal circumstances, but considering the weight this game carries in terms of playoff position, it's likely that officials will try and squeeze it in on Friday night by any means necessary.
