WetLanta, Ga. _ A day later than expected, and only if the weather cooperates, we’ll get to see center fielder Nate McLouth’s Braves debut tonight, and the return of Chipper Jones to the cleanup role, however permanent or not the move might be.
Again, if the weather allows. Because the good thing about our weather in Atlanta is that, even though we still have water restrictions and can’t wash cars, we don’t have to wash them because it rains every day or two and takes cares of that.
Not just rain, but torrential downpours have been the common occurrences lately, like last night, when we had yet another two-hour rain delay before it turned into our second rainout of the season.
If there’s another rainout involving a team that’s not returning to Turner Field, they might have trouble finding any remaining mutual days off between the Braves and whatever team that is. They’ve already used two such mutual days off to reschedule games with the D’backs on Aug. 17
