Former Hurricane Ernesto

August 29, 2006: Columbus Clippers 3, Charlotte Knights 4

Steven White gave up four runs in the first inning. That would be all the Knights would score, but it was enough. The Clippers made it close, but couldn't quite climb out of the hole White dug for them.

The Clippers are still in North Carolina, scheduled to play the Durham Bulls tonight at 7:00pm. The lineup has been posted, and Bubba is leading off and playing CF, as usual. But I wouldn't be surprised if the game is rained out. Ernesto is no longer a hurricane, but it's still packing a lot of rain. And it's headed straight for the Tarheel State.

If the game is played, you can follow the action online here, and/or listen to free Gameday audio here.

UPDATE: Yup, game was rained out. There will be a doubleheader tomorrow starting at 6:00pm ET. Though the weather's not looking good for tomorrow night, either.

Bubba needs to be called up tomorrow.

He doesn't have to be called up today. But he does have to be added to the 40-man roster today if he is to be a September callup.

Fingers crossed...

I think that if he isn't called up by the end of today, he isn't eligible for any consideration on the postseason roster, no matter what may happen. Even if things happen, like Johnny goes down, Matsui and Sheff don't come back after all, Melky gets hurt, whatever... They would have to go with someone else, maybe Kevin Thompson.

As I understand it, because he's been on the team this year, he is eligible to be on the post-season roster as long as he's on the 40-man roster by midnight tonight.

And there are loopholes even there. You can substitute players who weren't on the 40-man for an injured player. That's how the Yankees got Clay Bellinger on the postseason roster in 1999.
