As Hurricane Matthew makes its way up the Atlantic this week, it’s unclear — to take an extremely narrow view of things — how it will impact the Dodgers’ first two games in the National League Division Series at Washington. But with a 40 percent chance of rain already forecast for Saturday, everyone might need to brace themselves for at least a delay.
It’s funny (now) — when I was living in Washington D.C. in 1992-93, I got tickets for a game in Baltimore at Camden Yards that turned out to be called because of a hurricane. Driving home, the storm was blinding, and in retrospect it was crazy for me to have even tried to go in the first place. And then I got a flat tire. That night nearly destroyed me.
Oh well — here’s hoping for the best.
