Mizzou Baseball in the MLB Playoffs: Max Waits

Rain? Really? Tigers will go for sweep vs. Yankees today (Detroit Free Press)
Max Scherzer stood in the Tigers' locker room, looking all-too refreshed. He was supposed to pitch Game 4 on Wednesday night at Comerica Park. Now he was pulling on a sweatshirt. His dream deferred, he was going home -- even though he was yet to see a raindrop.

"Have you ever been rained out of a game when it didn't rain?" someone asked him

"Yeah. Last year in the ALCS, actually. We were in Texas. They called it at 3 o'clock. It never rained."

He smirked.

"And I was supposed to pitch."

The starters — Scherzer for the Tigers and CC Sabathia for the Yankees — remain the same.

Scherzer said the postponement will have "absolutely no impact" on him. He didn't even warm up Wednesday.

"We all wanted to play, but MLB wanted to cancel it, so it is what it is," he said. "The forecast was rain and it never came. That's the weather for you.

"We have a chance to go to the World Series tomorrow. That's the exciting part."
