Weather showing massive line of severe storms to hit Boston around 7, definitely by 8, with rain continuing for several hours. This is a tough one, I've got Monster tix (SRO) so Kim and I playing it by ear, don't know if we should bother to make the hour drive. No announcement yet from the team or anybody. Usually they do the "special weather statement" at least by now...

I'm interested in your reaction to the blown call at the end of the MFY-MFB game. Will it be shadenfreude, a call for replay, or both?

Horrible call - MFY need robots, too! The game should have been tied, as I assume the runner from third would have scored easily.
