I think that it would be neat to have rainouts during a game and/or a make up doubleheaders like in real baseball. This would make it a little more strategic on pitching starts on doubleheaders, etc. Rainouts after 6 or 7 innings in a reality in baseball. It would add a little twist to the game.

Might be difficult to program.   Might have unexpected problems.     In RL, sometimes teams make roster moves between games to alleviate the wear on the bullpen or have a spot starter.   Tough to do between games when they are simmed at the same time.

The way simmy operates some team would have a 40 day-40 night rain out streak. Then what?

The downside seems to outweigh the upside of this suggestion.

File this one in the "be careful what you wish for" category.

Agree, its similar to the requests that were made in GD for weather conditions.

Its always something "everyone" wants until luck bites them in the ***.

I like it - it just needs to be simple and RARE.  Maybe each game (based on city) has between a 0 (dome) and 2% chance of a rain delay.  Each delay is between 15 and 120 minutes long (random).  If it's longer than 120 - game cancelled.  Anything shorter and each minute counts against the pitchers fatigue for the day (but not his ability to recover).  ok - maybe it's not that simple :-)
