UPDATE (8:08 p.m.): The game has been postponed and rescheduled for Aug. 16. Which is weird because it’s part of an existing four-game series that includes a game in Williamsport. Anyway, no game tonight.
So we’re late, but it doesn’t matter, because the game is in rain delay!
Tonight’s game against the Mets may start around 9 or 9:30 p.m., which seems ridiculous. But hey, maybe it’ll start then.
Meanwhile, PIX11 here in New York is showing some bloopers show instead of the game. This is not good television.

Your Gameday Beer: I just had Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA, an all-time favorite that can’t be beat. Hoppy, rounded and malty as hell, it’s as good as it gets.
