UPDATE 7:45 PM: Tonight's game has been postponed! The radar shows it's not going to get much better here in SE MI.
As this weekend is the only scheduled visit for the Blue Jays, the Tigers' front office announced the makeup game will be part of a day/night doubleheader on Sunday. The day game will be played as scheduled at 1:05 PM. But there is now a night game scheduled for 6:05 PM Sunday...which is a getaway day.
Even Mother Nature hates the Tigers.
Tigers lead the series 1-0

7 PM Update: Much of SE MI is under a severe weather alert, and Detroit proper is under a tornado warning. As you might guess, tonight's start has been delayed by rain. The weather is expected to pass through, but no word as to a possible start time. It could be an hour or two. Feel free to rabble on in the comments while we wait for the weather to break!
Tigers Lineup: Jackson 8, Damon 7, Ordonez dh, Cabrera 3, Boesch 9, Guillen 4, Laird 2, Kelly 5, Worth 6.
