Apparently there are hotel issues that prevent the yankees from staying in washington (this worked out in our favor last year when we got to play a "road" series against Tampa in Shea), plus the Nationals have a charity event scheduled.
Oh well.

One in five chance we miss Scherzer next time.
Sorry, one in five chance we FACE Scherzer next time.

By twist of date with 2 off days this week

Yanks will only play those 5 innings over 4 full days. Good rest for everyone - our pitching got hot after that weekend of rainouts in Detroit earlier
especially

the BP. Champman has been used a lot.
They play them  
mitch300 : 5/16/2018 4:31 pm : link
@ home on 6/12 and 13. Then the following Monday 6/18 at Washington.
Yeah I'm fine with the timing of this.

We've been grinding through a brutal stretch of games - a little break can only help. Plus, we miss Scherzer, and the Red Sox have dropped a couple of games in the meantime.
Plus this buys some more time for Warren and Kahnle to get back

Need em badly.
There's  
mitch300 : 5/16/2018 4:35 pm : link
also a chance Monty will be back and can start the suspended game. He went on the DL 5/2 and at the time Bonne said he would be out 6-8 weeks.
So does Red Thunder

Don't forget about Strasburg either.

Both teams are likely to use a bullpen run in the suspended game- and then go with the regular SP in the makeup game.

We do face a couple of lefties in KC, so maybe not.

This.
Kind of poetic justice after that ridiculous  
chopperhatch : 5/16/2018 5:24 pm : link
18 straight run.

- I dont think we should send down Frazier. I think its time to see what this kid's got. If for no other reason to showcase him. But we have a LF who is nearing the end of his career with this team. While I would like Gard dawg back for another year or two, thos kod should be our 4th OF going forward.

Warren and Kahnle are due back towards the end of the weekend arent they?
More retractable roof stadiums please!

Boone said Clint Frazier will travel with the Yankees to Kansas City. Could start against the lefty Danny Duffy on SAT and very well could start Sunday against another lefty, Eric Skoglund

Tomorrow would get rained out again. It's pretty much nonstop rain here for the next few days.
