Sixteen games were played yesterday with nary a rainout. We’re back to 2018 normal today, however, as today’s game between the Cubs and Cardinals has been postponed due to inclement weather.
It’s supposed to be rainy and sleety with temperatures in the 30s and, my god, are we all sick of that. The game has been rescheduled for tomorrow, when Jon Lester will face off against Luke Weaver of the Cardinals.
Hang in there. Spring will eventually come. At least I think it will.
Red Sox manager Alex Cora said last night that Nathan Eovaldi will start Game 3 of the ALCS against the Astros on Tuesday.
Rick Porcello was previously lined up to start that game, but he was used in relief in last night’s game. Not that Eovaldi is chopped liver. Indeed, he’s coming off seven innings of one-run ball with five strikeouts and no walks in his Game 3 start against the Yankees in the ALDS.
Houston will go with Dallas Keuchel in Game 3, followed by Charlie Morton in Game 4. That is, “unless Armageddon hits and we have a historically long game,” said A.J. Hinch yesterday.
