CHICAGO - Mike Scioscia could sense the opener of the Los Angeles Angels series against the Chicago White Sox would be affected by the storm in the area Monday night. Nike Air Max Goedkoop . "Im sure were gonna be dealing with some rain at some point," Scioscia said about two hours before the scheduled first pitch. "Whether it impacts the game, I dont know. "I dont know if you ever know in Chicago, do you?" The game was postponed because of rain and rescheduled as part of a traditional doubleheader on Tuesday starting at 4:10 p.m. Angels right-hander Garrett Richards (8-2, 2.76) and Chicagos Hector Noesi (2-4, 4.18) — the scheduled starters Monday — will pitch Game 1, with Los Angeles Jered Weaver (8-6, 3.33) and Scott Carroll (2-4, 4.76) pitching the nightcap. The Angels had been undecided for the series finale on Wednesday, but named left-hander Tyler Skaggs (4-4, 4.34) to pitch that game following the postponement. Skaggs currently is on the disabled list since June 10 with a strained right hamstring. The White Sox will start left-hander John Danks (7-6, 4.26). With the addition of Skaggs, the Angels would have six starters, but Scioscia declined to say what move would be made from there. "Skaggs on Wednesday, and well let you know the rest," he said. "Well get through tomorrow and see where we are." The White Sox thought there would be a window to play Mondays game though the storm was expected to hit the ballpark around game time. It wasnt raining at 7:10, the time of the scheduled first pitch, but the rain began a few minutes later. The game surprisingly was called after just a 20-minute delay because the forecast changed and the rain was supposed to last longer. The extra time off was probably welcome for Albert Pujols, who is dealing with a groin injury, but was in the lineup Monday at first base. "He feels good," Scioscia said of Pujols. "Its not really anything thats muscular or anything were worried about being a pull. Its really just something . the way it was described our medical staff, its more of a lymph node or just a little infection that got a little irritated. "It shouldnt be anything thats gonna impact what he needs to do." Pujols was in Monday nights starting lineup set to hit third and play first base. NOTES: White Sox 1B Jose Abreu, tied for the MLB lead in homers with 25, has found himself at the centre of Home Run Derby speculation, but the rookie slugger remained mysterious on his possible participation. "Im more concentrated on helping the team right now," he said. ... RHP Fernando Salas (shoulder) threw 25 pitches during a bullpen session Sunday and could be activated as early as Wednesday. "Hes gonna throw a bullpen (Tuesday) and then be evaluated," Scioscia said. "He felt really good after his pen on Sunday." ... Asked before the game whether RHP Jason Grilli, acquired from Pittsburgh on Friday, would be his new closer, Scioscia said: "Well keep Joe Smith there until we get everything sorted out. Jason will be part of our back end and well see." Nike Air Max Uitverkoop .

After a 2015 season in which engine politics dominated the off-track agenda as Red Bull threatened to quit F1, the FIA charged the sports four manufacturers - Mercedes, Ferrari, Renault and Honda - to come up with proposals to tackle four key areas of concern in time for 2018 at the latest.These were a reduction in the cost of customer supplies, a guarantee to supply all teams, performance convergence, and improving the noise of the engines. In January, in exchange for keeping the current hybrid technology in place until 2020, the manufacturers agreed to lower the price customer teams pay for their engine supplies to €12m. The FIA said significant further progress had been made and placed a deadline of April 30 for the plans to be formally agreed.However, less than a fortnight before the new rules are supposed to be signed off, Red Bull boss Christian Horner cast down on the chances of agreement being reached.As we sit here now, we are not anywhere near having met any of those criteria and I think unfortunately what will happen, as is often the case with these things, time will run out at the end of the month and nothing will be achieved and nothing will change, Horner said at the Chinese GP. There is one more attempt in the Strategy meeting and the Commission meeting at the end of the month to discuss and table the concerns and where were at, but failing that regulations will inevitably stay as they are.However, Mercedes and Ferrari - who between them supply more than half the grid with power units - have countered Horners claimsFerrari chairman Sergio Marchionne told Sky Sports F1: We have gone miles in terms of engine supply.We have found a way in which the four engine manufacturers can continue to supply the sport on a way that may not be the most economically advantageous, but it does provide continuity for the other teams and I think thats important. So hopefully that will get through. Mercedes chief Toto Wolff suggested Horners comments were a bit of a one dimension and insisted the German manufacturer had gone further than they would have ideally liked to on the issue of supply guarantees in particular.Weve offered much cheaper engines and actually met the targets we set ourselves, the Austrian told Sky F1. We have structured an obligation to supply - which we dont like particularly, but we have offered it to not run into a Red Bulll situation again - and all that is on paper. Nike Air Max Outlet Nederland. But then it comes down to the detail of the contract and obviously not everybody is happy. He [Horner] isnt happy, but its about finding a compromise.In an attempt to push the manufacturers towards agreeing concessions, Bernie Ecclestone and FIA president Jean Todt controversially proposed the introduction of an independent budget engine for 2017, which would use simpler technology and be made available at a fraction of the cost of the current V6 turbo units.Marchionne says all the engine manufacturers are in agreement that the existing technology should remain the basis for future regulations. Ted Kravitz analyses the 2016 Formula 1 Chinese Grand Prix from Shanghai International Circuit On the larger issue of simplifying the powertrain, I think we need to be careful that we dont end up turning the sport into something that its not supposed to be, he said.This is supposed to be the leading edge of automotive experiences and so the powertrain needs to reflect the development of the industry itself.I am happy with the way in which the powertrain has developed today, it doesnt meet everyones objectives - Red Bull has got a different view - but we are of the view that we need to continue in this fashion and its a view thats shared by the other engine manufacturers.Meanwhile, on the issue of making the current engines louder, Wolff confirmed: We are working on various concepts and have made it one of the key points in order to find solutions.Dont miss the F1 Report on Wednesday at 8:30pm on Sky Sports F1 for full analysis of an action-packed Chinese Grand Prix at the Shanghai International Circuit.
