Dodger Game Rained Out, Depriving Nation of Dana Eveland vs Chien-Ming Wang

Per the official Dodger Twitter feed, today’s epic match-up of Dana Eveland against Chien-Ming Wang has been rained out, with a “traditional” doubleheader coming tomorrow.

As you can see from the weather.com forecast, things are pretty nasty in our nation’s capitol right now:

That said, things do look pretty clear behind the storm, and since first pitch isn’t for another 5.5 hours I do find it a bit surprising that they’re calling it off so soon. That’s particularly true because a “traditional” doubleheader – i.e., one ticket gets you in to both games, with Game 2 starting roughly 30 minutes after the end of Game 1 – is going to cost the Nationals the money they would have picked up by having two separate games. Since tomorrow’s game was already a 1pm ET start, technically today’s game will be the second game tomorrow.

For the Dodgers, this just makes their travel schedule even more difficult. Already in the midst of a stretch of 24 games in 24 days, the early start tomorrow was designed to accommodate a cross-country trip to San Francisco without the benefit of a day off. Now, that flight will be pushed back by another 4-5 hours, making what was already a tough trip even harder.

So now we’re without Dodger baseball for a night, and I throw the doors open to you. What do you want to talk about? Juan Uribe having surgery for a sports hernia today? Bill Plaschke trying to rattle the old jingoism cages by saying he’s one of the seemingly few who likes “God Bless America” during every single game? Let’s hear it.
