ESPN already lists the MIN @ CHW as postponed.  Get those Twinkies and White Sox out of your lineups...

Folks,

The Mods wanted to reinforce what this thread is for.  It's to impart information to the community about the daily lineups and weather/special concerns for scheduled games.  Multiple members led by Posty take time out of their days and lives and for the greater good of this community post the information they get in the timeliest of manners.  Everyone that contributes to the thread should be applauded and they have my thanks.  Thus, let's review what's not needed in this thread:
  • Asking for lineups or specific player.  Again, folks post them as soon as they can, there is no need to ask for them.  If you want a lineup that badly, then by all means go out and search for them.  Twitter is often the quickest place.
  • Commenting or asking questions about a lineup that has been posted.  If you have new information such as a last minute scratch, then please post.  However, if it's simply a post such as, "What no De Aza?" or "I can't believe they're batting Matt Carpenter 7th!", then please use discretion and don't.  These posts don't bring value to this specific thread and make it more difficult for folks to get pertinent information.  If you have real concerns about a player such as why he's hitting in a certain spot or why he's not playing, then take it to their specific thread.
  • BC Questions.  This really shouldn't be in question, but any lineup based post soliciting advice, actively or passively, is wholly out of bounds.
  • Rosterbating posts.  "Wow, my whole team is out of the lineup".  No offense, but nobody cares, take it to the vent thread.
So, this season is off to a great start but the lineups thread has been a little messy.  Hopefully this will remind folks of what these threads are for and they can be as consistently great as in year's past.  Again, a hardy thank you to all the contributors and good luck to all in your seasons.

Good chance the Braves at Pirates will also be cancelled.  Been raining for a couple of hours and winds are picking up:

Local forecast:  Rain likely with a few thunderstorms. Morning high of 64F with temps falling to near 50F. Winds SSW at 15 to 25 mph.

@PeteAbe

#RedSox have yet to decide on the game tonight, I was just told. Best thing will be to wait and see what the team says.

No one cares about my teams...

To be honest, I'm surprised Sox-Twins was postponed already. Its cold, but games have been played in worse weather before.

RT @EricKCTV5: Due to the search for the suspect in Boston. #Royals game versus #RedSox has been rescheduled to be played at a later date.

Even if the guy gets caught today, do you think they'll rush the players to the field to warm up? Don't think so...

If that is the case, I would guess the Bruins game would be postponed as well...

Officially being scrolled on local area TV stations that Red Sox game is cancelled tonight.  If "scrolling" is viewed as "official."

I think the Braves and Pirates play. Looks like cold front is moving through. Pitt may get some more rain here shorty, after that, hopefully it is done.

KYW is reporting a line of heavy T-storms to hit the Philadelphia area after 9 PM.

They should get it in, but don't be suprised to see a delay or two in Phils/StLoo
