The game was a washout, and I say “good!”
I’m at the point in my obligation to this site where I feel guilty about missing games. There’s only so much baseball that can occupy the television in our family room before my wife goes insane, so last night was a movie night, and I was somewhat glad when I turned on Comcast at 7 p.m. and saw some filler video on Kirby Puckett.
The Phils and Nats will make it up tomorrow in a day-night doubleheader at 1:05 and 7:05.
The good thing about baseball season is it takes place during summer reruns and cheesy new reality shows, but lately I’ve been hooked on “So You Think You Can Dance,” a dance version of "American Idol" that airs Wednesdays on Fox. I may be flipping back and forth tonight. This show is a guilty pleasure.
Tonight, it's Jon Lieber (11-10, 4.92 ERA) against Esteban Loaiza (7-8, 3.54 ERA).
Tomorrow, it's Vicente Padilla (5-11, 4.65 ERA) against Washington's Tony Armas Jr. (7-5, 4.33). Cory Lidle (9-10, 4.61) will face Ryan Drese (3-6, 4.69 ERA) in the night game.
Update: Thanks to alert reader Ankit for the corrections in the scheduling of these games.
