DETROIT — It’s cool and wet in before the reboot of Game 4, but you can spot some sunshine and blue skies beyond the clouds.

As noted on Wednesday, Laird has had an improbable amount of success against Sabathia (.417/.500/.625 and one homer and two doubles in 28 plate appearances). The sample size is obviously tiny, but it’ll nonetheless be interesting to see if the Tigers’ otherwise light-hitting backup catcher can continue handling one of the best pitchers in the game.
Wednesday’s rainout also means that Sabathia will be starting on five days’ rest. For whatever reason, that could be a modestly good thing for him.

As you can see, Sabathia on five days has been a bit better in terms of ERA and strikeout-to-walk ratio, and that’s across a pretty meaningful agement are fast-tracking Joe White through their youth teams.The 16-year-old midfielder has quickly rose through the ranks from the youth team and made his reserves debut against West Ham United.White has been training with the first team but Under-sample of 112 starts. This season, Sabathia’s posted a 3.25 ERA on five days of rest (12 starts) versus a 3.96 ERA on regular rest (also 12 starts). While the Wednesday postponement cost the Yankees’ a chance at starting Sabathia in a possible (though highly unlikely) Game 7, it might move the needle for him a bit in Game 4.
Scherzer, meanwhile, was already going on extra rest prior to Wednesday’s wash-out. He’s made 15 career regular-season starts on six or more days’ rest, and he’s been slightly less effective under those conditions. However, given Scherzer’s semi-recent shoulder and ankle concerns, the additional time off can’t be considered any kind of negative.
