The World According to Tarp

We're about a half an hour away from finally getting in some Brown-Harvard baseball.

Partway through yesterday, I looked out the window and thought, "You know, they really could've played today. I wonder why they were so quick to pull the trigger." This helps explain:
Although Sunday's weather was more cooperative, the storm on Saturday night blew off the tarp covering the field, rendering it unplayable.

"There's no way we could have played today," said relief pitcher Ethan Silverstein '07. "We spent an hour and a half just rolling the tarp back up. Basically, we desperately need a new one."

There is also this key injury note regarding Matt Kutler's protection:
The postponements also gave cleanup hitter Eric Larson '06.5 a chance to rest a groin injury. Larson has been out of the lineup since the second game of a doubleheader at Dartmouth on April 16. Despite a doctor's opinion to rest for 4-6 weeks, Larson will attempt to play today.

The Crimson today said that the games have been rescheduled for today and tomorrow. The Brown Daily Herald hedged a bit, saying this was the most likely scenario. Neither athletic department has officially said as much, and Brown's schedule still lists a game against Vermont tomorrow. Stay tuned.

I wonder if Coach Walsh is planning to give Kutler some Barry Bonds-like treatment by intentionally walking him in crucial situations. That guy has killed us for what seems like the past 10 years.
