Game 5 of the ALDS will be played this Tuesday afternoon

NEW YORK-- Game 5 of the ALDS between the New York Yankees and the Cleveland Guardians was postponed due to inclement weather Monday night, the MLB announced. The game was scheduled to start at 7:07 p.m. ET, and after a two and a half hour rain delay, the game was officially postponed. It will be at 16:07. ET on Tuesday.
The forecasts indicated that the rain would continue until 21 hours. ET more or less with a playable window possibly arising before then, although it never happened, and the rain was still falling steadily when Game 5 was delayed. Given the conditions on the field of play at the time the game was announced, the earliest the first pitch could have been thrown was 10:30 p.m. m. ET or so.
MLB makes all weather-related decisions during the postseason. The league consults the teams and the referees, but in the end it has the last word. MLB's priority is to avoid midgame delays and play an uninterrupted nine-inning game.
The delay seems to benefit the Yankees the most, as their well-used bullpen catches a breather. Guardians replacement aces Trevor Stephan, James Karinchak and Emmanuel Clase haven't pitched since Game 2 and are well rested. New York's top relievers, especially Jonathan Loáisiga and Wandy Peralta, have been hard at work these past few days. Now they rest.
The Yankees won Game 4 on Sunday to force a decisive Game 5. Tuesday was a scheduled day off between ALDS and ALCS. The postponement means the winner of Game 5 will travel to Houston after the game and play Game 1 of the American League Championship Series against the Astros on Wednesday night. The loser of Game 5, of course, goes home.
Following the postponement, the Yankees announced that Néstor Cortés will start Game 5 on short rest. Jameson Taillon was scheduled to receive the ball on Monday. The Guardians were going to start Aaron Civale in Game 5, though the postponement gives them the option of starting star Shane Bieber on short rest. They had not announced any updated Game 5 release plans on Monday night.
The postponement is the second for the ALDS. Game 2 was also postponed last Thursday, forcing teams to play Games 2-4 on three consecutive days. It would have been four games in four days if Game 5 hadn't been postponed on Monday.
Game 5 between Guardians and Yankees rescheduled for Tuesday
The first launch will be at 16:07 ET.

The shelters are filling up on the Guardians side 😬—Justin Shackil (@JustinShackil)October 18, 2022
As a reminder: if this game is postponed, they will most likely play tomorrow afternoon. After that, the winner would head to Houston to start the ALCS on Wednesday. A far less than ideal scenario for the winner, who would enter the ALCS with no rest days in between.
it keeps raining constantly
The tarps remain on the field. Absolutely the earliest they could start this game is 9:50 p.m. m. ET or later, and that's if they start removing the tarp now, which they don't. There is still no news from the MLB. I think we are reaching the moment of decision.
This is a very good cat.
Every once in a while the crowd claps, and I look up to see if it's because the field crew came out to take down the canvas, but it's always because something happened in the game they're showing on the scoreboard (cycling between hockey and MNF ) .

If the game is postponed...
The Yankees and Guardians would meet Tuesday afternoon in New York if they couldn't play tonight. Probably 1 p.m. m. or 2 p.m. m. beginning of ET. That would be five ALDS games in eight days and no days off before ALCS Game 1 in Houston.
The rain has abated and the fans begin to return to their seats. No announcements yet, but conditions are improving.
The MLB audience is about to meet with the clubs to discuss the forecast. Generally speaking, once the tarp is removed, add another 30 minutes to prepare the field.—Bryan Hoch (@BryanHoch)October 18, 2022

It's still raining at Yankee Stadium
There hasn't been any updates from MLB since the game was postponed, but it's still raining steadily here in the Bronx. The forecast is for another 30-60 minutes of rain to come, but if it's light, they might try to play with it. The tarp is still on the field so the earliest start time is around 9:30pm. ET
Those Chargers uniforms are pretty cool.
THE RAIN PREVENTS EVERYONE FROM WRITING— JoezMcfly🇩🇴 (@JoezMcfLy)October 18, 2022
It's raining harder now
And people are returning to the halls. Sigh. The absolute first release is probably 9:15 p.m. m. ET? Maybe at 9:30 p.m. m. ET?
Remember, once it stops raining, there will probably be a 30 minute window for players to warm up etc. So it's not just a matter of "it just rained".
The rain has abated long enough for the fans to begin returning to their seats.
It's still raining, although not as much as in the last 90 minutes. When they've got the field set up and everything, it's hard to see this one starting before 9 p.m. m. ET.
