    LA Dodgers vs Cubs game tonight

    Going to be rain around opening pitch why dont they start the game 2 hours early to make sure they get a game in, MLB need to be more flexible sometimes

    Sadly your excellent point will never be applied. With the home team in control of the game before first pitch, you would think they would do that for their fans? But they do not give a shit about their fans
    Especially with this the Dodgers only series there, it would make sense to do everything to avoid a double header

    It insane to think they got a window here of 5 hours to get this game in it not like this game will have a full audience attending today or it going to have high viewing figures if it going to be shown on espn.

    they probably don't want to lose concession $$$ so they rather reschedule than move the game up and have less people than anticipated.

    If you did move the game up, you’d have to refund most purchased tickets. Plus you need agreement from broadcast channels, etc.

    As “good” as weather predictions have become, they usually aren’t great many days in advance.

    So they would rather go with a rain delay or even a PPD in a worst case scenario.

    2 hours earlier?


    have you ever bought a ticket to a game?

    can you imagine being at work anticipating going to a game with family and friends and at the last min they move the game 2 hours earlier....

    I am just shaking my head at the moment it seems a perfect day for baseball now and the players have not been given the go a head by MLB and the umpiring crew to start this game

    archie makes a good point. comes down to making fans happy while getting the gate/concessions optimized.

    Looking at the radar, no way they start at 7pm. Going to come in hot and heavy right around then, but it looks like it clears up at about 9pm or shortly after. Probably start 9:15-9:30. Yeah, gonna be a late night. They might as well announce the delay now. Do they really want fans huddled up inside for hours? Just call it 9:30.

    Can anybody figure out why Dodgers such a steep price here? Seems a big number.

In fact, if I was the manager and they started on time at 6:40, I'd switch the starter to a reliever planning an inning or two and then go to the real starter after the delay. Watch for listed pitcher bets.

    Doesn't look like it's going to be light to me. Looks like a short, but heavy one coming through. I say 0% chance they get it all in without delay. But they should be able to play dry by about 9:30p. They might be able to start at 6:40, but if they do they won't get in more than an inning or two before the deluge.

    this type of game, when you know it will be delays you are better to delete from your odds and look to others games imo.
