The Next Three Games
After last night’s rainout, the schedule has been amended.
Tonight’s game begins as scheduled at 7:10 PM. Jonathon Niese will start for the Mets against Esmil Rogers of the Rockies.
On Thursday, the Mets and Rockies will engage in a
modern style traditional doubleheader — i.e., one ticket gives you two games (thank you for the correction, friends in the comments). The first game tomorrow will begin at 12:10 PM, with R.A. Dickey expecting to face lefty Jorge De La Rosa. The second game begins at 3:40 PM (assuming, of course, that game one doesn’t go more than 3 1/2 hours), with Chris Capuano taking the hill against righthander Greg Reynolds.
However, don’t hold me to those pitching matchups; it’s possible that the Rox will flip-flop those pitchers. I’m not sure what goes into the decision-making process, so can’t comment on which pitcher makes more sense based on the timing.
