Cliff Lee may move up if it rains
ARLINGTON, Texas -- If rain comes and forces Friday night's Game 6 of the American League Championship Series to be postponed until Saturday -- when there's actually a greater chance of rain -- Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington may skip Colby Lewis and turn to ace Cliff Lee.
The latest forecast calls for a 30 percent chance for rain Friday. While storms are expected mostly to stay north of Rangers Ballpark, there is a chance nonetheless.
"I haven't talked to anybody about it," Washington said, trying not to smile. "But, it could possibly happen."
Washington said Game 5 loser C.J. Wilson will also be availabe in the bullpen Friday.
