Here are just a few consequences of the Dodgers’ game at Minnesota today being postponed because of weather.
- Two days’ rest for everyone — and that’s assuming they can get a game in Wednesday, for which the forecast is only slightly improved. For you Kenley Jansen watchers, that means that the next time he takes the mound, he’ll have thrown only 18 pitches in at least a week. And Hanley Ramirez’s thumb contusion gets an extra day of healing.
- Conversely, there is some potential double duty for the bullpen Thursday, when the Dodgers are now scheduled to play a split doubleheader with games at 10:10 a.m. and 4:10 p.m. Pacific. A strong outing Wednesday by Zack Greinke would help mitigate that burden.
- And, the team will be that much more tired when they arrive in Miami for the weekend series against the Marlins.
Other than that, I guess the team has some time to sit back and watch TV. A new episode of “Fargo” is on tonight — that seems weather-appropriate.
