It's Joe Maddon's understanding that tonight's rainfall during Game 2 will be more of a drizzle, and not like the extreme conditions he saw in Game 5 of the 2008 World Series. That game between his then-Rays and the Phillies had to be paused in the sixth. "Rain was horizontal," Maddon remembered. "One of my better memories in baseball."

MLB official just updated media on the status of tonight's World Series Game 2 in rainy Cleveland. The plan is still to play. Hope is the moisture will remain a light drizzle. Right now no delay is planned but final determination will depend on the weather and how long the starting pitchers need to warmup. If the game is stopped after starting, it will pick up from the point of suspension, likely tomorrow. Final call will be made by commissioner Rob Manfred.

The latest AccuWeather forecast for Wednesday night calls for a chance of rain at 30 percent from 7-9 EST which could lead to a delay in the start. Later, the rain could have a bigger impact if the game lasts more than 3 hours or goes into extra innings. Temps will be in the low 40's throughout the night. The wind will also be a factor blowing 10-20 mph from the east-southeast, that's right to left field.

To paraphrase the great Ernie Banks: It's a great day for baseball, let's play Game 2. And hopefully the rain will hold off long enough to get though tonight's game in Cleveland.
