9:30 or bust?

TarpPHILADELPHIA -- The rain had started to let up but it seems this system has circled back. Another downpour has sent fans in the lower levels of Citizens Bank Park scurrying from their seats. The word floating around the press box is that MLB has a target start time of 9:30 p.m for Game Three. Also floating around is word that FOX officials have said they don't want to start a game later than 9:30.

So if all that scuttlebutt is true, I would imagine we would have a decision one way or another by about 9 p.m.

9:30 UPDATE: I have no idea why we're still here. It's still pouring. Guess that forecast about it stopping was about as accurate as what we see on Buffalo TV in the winter. No official word yet but I'd be shocked if we see a pitch tonight.

9:40 UPDATE: Egg on thy blogger's face. The tarp is off and they're trying to put diamond dry on the infield on through the rain and wind. I'm wondering if we're actually going to do this in the 10:15 range.
