Tonight’s game between the Jays and White Sox has been postponed due to a horrific looking forecast, and because I’ve been lazy and not done anything else today, here’s a post about it!
Don’t believe me? Benny Fresh had it first:
Game between White Sox and Blue Jays postponed due to a forecast of severe weather conditions per White Sox

Sure, it’s a disappointing notion for those of us who need our daily Blue Jays fix, but on the other hand… uh… missing an Esmil Rogers start against Chris Sale? Yeah, I think I can handle that.
Shi Davidi tweets that a make-up date is to be announced– meaning, y’know, that they haven’t announced one yet. The Jays don’t travel to Chicago again this season, but the clubs have mutual off-days on August 8th, 19th, 29th, and September 23rd. With the Jays heading home from a west coast swing on August 8th, and the White Sox at home, maybe that’s the date– though Chicago has a make-up doubleheader the following day, so maybe that won’t fly.
Who knows?! Alls I know is, the Jays avoid Chris Sale and head into Texas with Buehrle, Johnson, Dickey and Wang setup to take on Darvish, Grimm, Lindblom, and Holland when they head to Texas for four, starting tomorrow.
So… there’s that.
Ugh. Except there isn’t. Because Shi Davidi just laid this on us:
Gibbons says starters each pushed back a day. Esmil Rogers pitches tomorrow

Sounds kinda fucking dumb to me. But… I dunno… maybe Rogers is the second- or third-most reliable starter at this point. Double ugh.
