The weather report is calling for rain and thunderstorms most of today. The Mets had the tarp out on the field immediately after last night’s game. The contingency plan is for a day/night double header on Sunday. The word is that the Mets would like to call the game early today, if possible.
A day/night double header is exactly what the Mets don’t need before leaving for San Francisco and playing a game Monday night there. Thanks to ESPN for changing the game to Sunday night. And thanks to the MLB scheduling team for planning an LA/New York game on Sunday right before the Mets leave for San Francisco.
Obviously, ESPN is going to take this game for Sunday night. It’s the two biggest TV markets in the country. MLB should’ve done a better job with the schedule. Now the Mets will pay the price.
