    Oy. The weather is going to be bad for this series. I'm just hoping they find a way to get at least two of the games in the books before the Dodgers leave.

    Going to be tough to get two games in, unless they do a double header (even then, I have my doubts). If I was a player, I'd beg the union to loosen the rules so I could play in nicer weather, and not play this week. But then, I don't have to try to have my body recover after working on the field*

    *actually, given my broken leg, I do have that issue, but it isn't my job....

    Doubleheader Thursday is what I'm thinking. As miserable as it has been today and yesterday, I have to imagine that Target Field is really soaked. Drainage is much better at modern stadia, but I can't imagine anyone playing until Thursday at the earliest. BTW, it is snowing pretty hard here in Rochester this morning. So far, nothing sticking except on the windshields of parked cars.

    I suspect the goal will be to get just one game in and hope for a doubleheader on 5/18. But that's just a guess.

    Didn't dodge fast enough today.

    Today's game postponed until Thursday night.

    Where did you get this confirmation? I haven't seen anything on the Twins' site.

    Thanks. I'm particularly interested since I have tickets. Wasn't really looking forward to sitting out in the rain tonight.

    Note also that Wednesday's game, if played, has been moved from FSN to FSN+ to handle the Wild playoff game.
    Oh, I'm a lumberjack, and I'm okay,
    I sleep all night and I work all day.

    You're welcome.

    I'd keep that rain/cold weather gear handy -- looks like all of the games this week may suffer from the elements.

  13. This user likes JB_Iowa's post and wants to buy him/her a steak dinner:

    I wonder if all the postponements are going to be a net positive or a net negative for the starting rotation. Is extra rest going to make them sharper, or does all the cold/rainy weather cancel out any benefit? Will being off schedule, even if it means more rest, throw them off?

    Maybe that's a good think for Pelfrey, though.

    What does service time have to do with this? I must be missing some knowledge.
    Lighten up Francis....

    It's all getting switching around again, anyway.

    This from Gardenhire:


    • Rhett Bollinger ‏@RhettBollinger 13m
      Gardenhire said Kyle Gibson will be pushed back to start against Zack Greinke tomorrow. Mike Pelfrey will start Game 1 of DH. Game 2 is TBA.



      (Mike: Apparently when it was thought that Nolasco & Pelfrey were both going to start on Thursday, Nolasco was going to start the 1st game and he supposedly got to pick which game he wanted to start because he has more service time than Pelfrey).

    Mike, how soon do we forget? Just one year ago against the Twins, Nolasco just about blew a gasket:

    But is this an unwritten rule or is it an actual requirement?

    Now my interest is piqued!

    (And is Nolasco starting on Friday now???)
