Thanks, Rain: Dodger Game Washed Away

It almost seems foolish to talk about given what else is happening in the world right now, so I can’t be too disappointed that we’ll have to wait an extra day for the first Dodger game in Baltimore since 2002. Thanks to heavy rain that prevented the tarp from ever coming off, tonight’s game is a wash, and instead we’ll get a day/night doubleheader tomorrow.

At 10am PT, Hyun-jin Ryu will start against Jason Hammel, and Josh Beckett & Wei-Yin Chen will go in the regularly scheduled 4pm PT game. It’ll be the first doubleheader for the team since September 19 of last year, when their last visit to the mid-Atlantic region to play Washington included an Ernie Banks special.

You know, I think this rainout may have been the best thing for the team right now.  It gives them two straight off days, essentially gives Kemp three, and Ryu gets an extra day of rest.  That's likely a good thing for the team at the moment as it should give them the time to put the San Diego series out of their minds before starting these games against Baltimore so that they can come out and play some good sound baseball.

Play Puig NOW!!! Kemp is slumping. Besides he's not going to be 100% after surgery like that. It takes about 1 year to fully recover 100%. It would benefit Kemp AND the Dodgers to have Kemp on the bench as the utility outfielder. He could ease back into 100% health. Getting into games late and on guys days off. That would be the ultimate rehab assignment and they have that luxury. He's not going aywhere with that fat contract. Either that or teach Puig to play 3rd. There's no reason to think he couldn't play 3rd seeing everything else he can do."

I just read an archive article that mentioned Tony Jackson.  Anyone know what happened to him yet?  I know it was discusses here a while back and no one seemed to know.  Any new info on that front?

Last night sucked. Trains were down after the game too... Today I am driving up. We will see if I decide to stay for Beckett tonight too.

@Dodgers' 7th Ring glad you enjoyed it. They played a pretty big role in my childhood. It's now been over 10 years since I saw them, but I remember getting chills when they played Good Riddance.

@Elyk @Lobo I've never played a Resident Evil game and never will (I'm terrified of Zombies.  Even the Walking Dead game is giving me nightmares but I can't stop playing it because it's so good) but I'll be sure to check out those other ones when I buy a 3DS.  Would you trust buying one used from Amazon or should I buy a new one?
