I had minor league hockey playoffs right next door to Great American tonight (against Pittsburgh's affiliate, the Wheeling Nailers), so I was hoping they would just make tomorrow a double header with the afternoon game which I plan on attending.

That would work out great for you, Shark, but I doubt that the Reds would play a double header as a make-up game because:

  • The Reds would lose gate receipts for a game.
  • The game is against the Pirates, a division foe, against whom they have a ton of future games.
  • That means there are plenty of opportunities to schedule the make-up game on an off day.

Sorry.

The Reds pitching staff were probably nervous about a possible double header...With Dusty's handling of pitchers and then to play two games on the same day...ouch...

In double headers, Dusty puts his starters on a strict pitch limit - no more than 150 pitches. Well, 175 if necessary.

He will not let his pitchers throw in more than five consecutive games during Spring Training.

Unless of course he needs to win that all-important Grapefruit League crown ... in which case, call the surgeons!
