Phillies Dodgers kicked off at 7:05 today but a storm is brewing (literally, a rain storm). Attempting to outsmart the weather, Girardi is “starting” reliever Connor Brogdon so that Kyle Gibson can “start” uninterrupted by weather after the impending weather delay.
This is a goofy situation that is uniquely impactful in Ottoneu. I can’t imagine too many teams have Brogdon and his 1-2 innings may notean as much but a lot of teams will miss out on a start from Gibson, even though he may give 6 solid innings tonight. Curious to see if this has happened before? Is there a manual adjustment/intervention here? Or just tough luck?
