12:04 p.m. ET: Verlander to pitch if Game 4 is postponed
Astros manager A.J. Hinch said right-hander Justin Verlander would likely get the start for Houston if rain postpones today's Game 4 until Tuesday. Verlander, who "We don't deal with this in Houston [because of the retractable roof at Minute Maid Park]," said Hinch. "We'll adapt accordingly. If we play two hours and then have to wait out a rain delay, so be it. If we play an hour and wait out a rain delay, so be it. If we play the quickest game in Fenway history and win, that would be the best outcome. We're just going to have to deal with it today."
11:26 a.m. ET: Willing the weather
The tarp is on the field, but players are warming up.
No one can guarantee the weather, but here's what Red Sox manager John Farrell had to say: "We're starting on time. It's likely we'll be in some dampness for the first probably couple of hours -- some mist, light rain. The forecast says the moderate rain is more 3:30, 4 o'clock. Everyone wants to get this game underway.
"I think if there was a forecast that suggested there would be stoppage earlier in the afternoon, we wouldn't begin this one. There is a potential that the game does get interrupted, that might not be till later on. Like I said, Major League Baseball's efforts, everyone involved, wants to get the game underway and play it."
