BALTIMORE -- It is overcast and drizzling in Charm City. The forecast is dicey for tonight's 6:15 first pitch. According to Weather.com, there is only a 10 percent chance of rain in the 6 o'clock hour, but is at 70 percent in the 7 p.m. hour. It reduces from there on out.

The temperature will be in the 50s. Sounds like we will get this one, but that is what they hoped last year and both the Yankees and Tigers lost their aces after the postponement in the Bronx.

As for Joe Girard's roster, he officially has put Jayson Nix and Derek Lowe on, while leaving off Andruw Jones, Cody Eppley and Ivan Nova. Here is the roster:
