It has stopped raining here in Jersey, but apparently the powers that be wanted to get away from the big city as quickly as possible and made the decision mighty early to postpone tonight's game between the Mets and the Cardinals.
The teams will have to make the game up on a mutual off day. A cursory glance at the calendar turns up September 27th as a possibility as the Mets will be in the middle of a homestand and the Cardinals will be in between series in Milwaukee and Pittsburgh.
The good news for the Mets is that Orlando Hernandez will be pushed to tomorrow and the team will not have to make a roster move -- likely to have been a recall of Mike Pelfrey -- in order to accommodate the four games in three days against the Phillies this weekend. I was looking forward to see how much Pelfrey has improved in recent weeks, but I guess that will have to wait for another day.
