“Rain. Rain. Go Away.”

If there’s a song dancing in Bud Selig’s head today, it’s surely that children's nursery rhyme. Wednesday saw two more rainouts in Major League Baseball, bringing the total up to 21 for the 2011 season, which is just shy of a month-and-a-half old. And that didn’t include the rain delay for the Cards-Cubs game that gave a national television audience on ESPN something to chat about as winds and lightening came with the deluge.

Just  17,741 saw the Rays break the Indians home game winning streak at 14, and not even the brand power of the Red Sox seems to bring them in at Rogers Centre.

Still, there were some bright spots Weds. The Brewers continue to draw well, and even though playing well below what was expected this year, the Twins are packing it out. And, finally, nothing helps bring fans in like a promo. Just ask the Angels who were playing the lackluster White Sox.
