Overnight rain left the streets and fields of the entire Phoenix area soaked and spotted with standing water, and with not one but two games scheduled today, the Seattle Mariners do not need more rain.
Forecast? Scattered showers.
If they can play today, the Mariners will make up for their Sunday rainout and get work not only for starters Ryan Rowland-Smith and Doug Fister, but for plenty of other arms behind them.
If they lose two games today, they'd have to scramble pitching plans, and there are no minor league games being played yet to fill in spots.
Never miss a local story.
Obviously, this isn't just a Mariners issue - every team in the Phoenix area Sunday lost a game to the weather, and today's threatening skies could impact them all again.
At the moment, Don Wakamatsu and his staff are huddling to come up with options A-through-Z. Stay tuned.
