It’s going to be okay. We promise. You can make it through until tomorrow night. You can.
After last night’s series finale with the Baltimore Orioles was washed out, Washington’s series opener with the Philadelphia Phillies in Nationals Park has been postponed too.
That’s right, it’s going to be two straight days without Nationals baseball. Stay calm.
Find a movie, watch some other baseball game on the TV, though stay away from AL baseball with the DH and stuff.
A.J. Cole, who was supposed to start against the Orioles last night, was skipped in the rotation, and today he was optioned out to Triple-A Syracuse, along with Matt Grace, making room for both Shawn Kelley and Koda Glover to return from their DL stints.
Will the Nationals just push Roark back a day? According to Nats’ skipper Dusty Baker that is the plan:

As part of the decision this afternoon, the Nationals announced that they will play a split doubleheader with the Phillies on Sunday, preserving the off day on Monday.

Do your best to remain calm, the current weather forecast has the rain stopping early tomorrow afternoon, so the 7:05 PM EDT game should be possible.
Here’s the official schedule for the pitchers over the next three games:
#Nationals: Tanner Roark will start tomorrow for #Nats. Gio Gonzalez will start the 1st game on Sunday. Max Scherzer will start 2nd game.— federalbaseball (@federalbaseball) May 12, 2017
