Apparently, there's a rain delay, and there has been some talk on Twitter of the game being pushed back an hour ... but nobody really knows, really.
This pre-game post will magically turn into a Gameday post at the appropriate time.
In the meantime, here's a nice electronic track to keep you entertained:
Update: Jeff Wilson has an update on what's going on in Detroit. For those of you who like to play meteorologist, here's the Weather.com map for the metro Detroit area ... and I don't know how encouraged I am by it.
Fake Update: From @MLBONFOX:
Rain delay. Estimated first pitch time is 5:15pm ET. Stay tuned cause we've got some great features & interviews lined up. #postseason
Will A.J. Pierzynski cook up some delicious monster chicken nachos? Stay tuned and find out! Or watch the NCIS marathon on USA or go running out into traffic or something
Double Fake Update: 4:45 p.m. CDT start, now.
Triple Fake Update: First pitch is now set for 5:30 p.m. CDT. There's no immediate explanation for the prolonged delay between the cessation of rain and the groundscrew springing into action, but, hey, there you go.
