The Colorado Rockies caught a break today.
Schedules are all mish-mashed up thanks to the snow in Colorado (and for the Mets, thanks to the snow in Minnesota, as well). As such, doubleheaders and missed games mean that the team’s respective pitching rotations have been shuffled a little bit. This is how the Rockies caught a break.
The projected match-up for the single game scheduled for Thursday is Jon Garland against Jon Niese. Fine. That means the match-up that would have happened Wednesday carries over a day. The projected match-up Thursday? (according to the Denver Post):
That would be Matt Harvey, he of the 3-0 record and the 0.82 ERA. He who carried a no-hitter into the 7th inning of his last start. His dominance is one of the early story-lines this season.
It remains to be seen when this game will be made up, but if its re-schedule date means the Rockies miss facing Harvey, it means a much better chance at a precious win.
Tomorrow’s game is scheduled to start at 1:10 P.M. MST. I would say “weather pending,” but that seems sort of redundant at this point.
