    A double header has the same effect as using an open date. I believe the rule is 20 or 21 games max between off days.

    A cat is only a cat, but a good cigar is a smoke.

    And at my age, a good fire is better than a cat smoking a cigar...

    But, the doubleheader would leave any open dates intact.

    For example, if the Twins reschedule for a doubleheader Saturday August 23, it works -- they would still only have 11 games between off days.

    But if they reschedule for the Monday August 25 open date, that wouldn't work by your rules, because losing that open date puts them at 24 games without an off day (they have no open dates scheduled for the previous or following weeks).

    Here's the rule, from page 8 here:
    http://mlb.mlb.com/pa/pdf/cba_english.pdf

    No Club shall be scheduled, or rescheduled if practicable, to
    play more than 20 consecutive dates without an open day. A rained-
    out game may be rescheduled to an open date in the same series, or
    to an open date at the end of the same series, if (a) the open date is
    a road off-day for the visiting Club, and (b) the rescheduling does
    not result in the home team playing more than 24 consecutive dates
    without an open day

    Thanks for posting that.

    So, does "dates" mean "days" not "games"?

    It also uses the term "if practicable" so that gives some extra wiggle room.

    The rule would definitely seem to favor double-headers even if that causes the team to play more than 20 games between open dates.

    Would that mean they get to call up a 27th player?

    More realistically, who do folk figure they'll call up for the 26th player?

    Kris Johnson? Unless Deduno is ready to slot into a start, they'll need another SP to avoid a short rest situation beginning Sunday.

    Nolasco and Pelfrey are starting on Thursday .... so I would guess that Deduno gets a spot start (and maybe it won't be so "spot" in the long run).

    This is all based on them playing tomorrow. I'm not sure, but the weather doesn't look too promising for Wednesday, as well. They'll make every effort to play on Thursday, because making up three games to an NL opponent would be difficult to impossible. I would suspect if they don't play tomorrow, it will be Gibson pitching the afternoon game with Nolasco facing his ex-mates in the nitecap.

    As far as a 26th player, Parmelee would have been a good choice but he's not on the 40-man, nor is Bernier. Probably a pitcher, even though one won't be a necessity.
