Well, we were all geared up for the return of Ronald Acuna Jr. and Nick Markakis as well as the debut of Ian Anderson this evening. It was going to be a big test for a reinforced Braves squad against one of the better teams in the entire league in the Yankees.
Sadly, Mother Nature cares not for our excitement.
Tonight’s game vs the NY Yankees has been postponed due to weather. The game has been rescheduled for tomorrow at 4:10 p.m. as part of a traditional doubleheader. Game two will start at 7:10 pending the completion of Game 1. pic.twitter.com/V5atnPCYw6— Atlanta Braves (@Braves) August 25, 2020
The weather tomorrow in the Atlanta area should be better than it has been today, seriously....it has rained all day, so the Braves should be able to get their new doubleheader in without issue. The Braves could, in theory, move things around a bit to have it where Ian doesn’t have to face off against Gerrit Cole if they so choose as well, although the actual value of doing that is debatable at best.
