    He has to. I'm kind of worried about Chuck for his next game. He's barely pitched in the last 10 days

    They called the game at 9 AM and it still hasn't rained. They would definitely have been able to get an official game in, and most likely a full 9 innings.

    I was surprised to see it called as early as it was. they usually wait longer. It must have been pretty unanimous from the NWS that it was gonna rain during the game

    Paul Maholm said it rained in the morning, stopped right around the time they called the game, then didn't rain until about 15 minutes ago, which delayed their flight taking off.

    I thought it was incredibly weird that it got cancelled so early.

    The Pirates are really and truly stinking up the joint. Can you believe at the beginning of this losing streak the Bucs were 18-17? Now they are 18-23, fourth in the division, and showing no signs of ever getting a win again, let alone a winning season. May God have mercy on their souls.
