Washington Nationals Manager doesn't realize Capitalism causes weather, says "We can't do much about the weather." NY Mets at Washington Nationals rained out

9/24/14, "Nationals-Mets postponed, will play doubleheader Thursday with reworked rotation," Washington Post, Adam Kilgore

"The Washington Nationals will play two split doubleheaders in two days after rain postponed their game Wednesday night against the New York Mets. The scheduling forced the Nationals to rework their pitching staff – which may have revealed their plans for their playoff rotation – and makes them play four games in 48 hours as they seek to secure the National League’s best record and homefield advantage for the postseason.

“It’s not ideal, for sure” Manager Matt Williams said. We can’t do much about the weather. It doesn’t look good tonight, and it doesn’t look like it’s getting out of here before tomorrow morning. Rather than wait around all night, we decided to play two tomorrow. It is what it is. We’re not the only team that’s had to play doubleheaders this year. We got to deal with it.”

The Nationals will make up Wednesday’s game Thursday at 1:05 p.m. Rookie Blake Treinen will start Game 1 and Gio Gonzalez, Wednesday’s originally scheduled starter, will pitch Game 2."...image from ap
