Mercifully, this game got called off quickly, rather than making everyone — like me! — sit through an interminable delay. Tonight’s Hyun-jin Ryu vs Phil Hughes matchup will be made up as part of a day-night double header at 1pm ET tomorrow (sort of, since Hiroki Kuroda will now pitch the day game) and that presents a few problems for the Dodgers. No one needed a third day off in six days, and now they have to play three games on two coasts in something like 36 hours, considering they head to San Diego on Thursday night. Have fun with that, bullpen.
So there’s that, and also the issue that they’ll now need a starter in San Diego on Sunday, since you wouldn’t want either Ryu or Chris Capuano, starting the nightcap, on three days rest. Is that Matt Magill? Maybe, but he’s been awful. Is it Zach Lee? I tend to doubt it, but he is scheduled to go for Chattanooga tomorrow, so we’ll be sure to all panic when he inevitably gets scratched only to protect him while Magill gets the ball instead.
