- Unfortunately Manny apparently isn't thinking. You really think Jordan Zimmermann's debut is the right time to test out your worst defensive alignment possible in the outfield? Dunn misplayed a Chipper Jones double into a triple in the third, and Dukes lollygagged a Matt Diaz single into a double. That's so far. Hey, Flash Jordan's a groundball pitcher, so maybe in his third or fourth start you can test this out. But he should have the best defense out there possible, and that means Kearns in right.

This game clearly could have started right on time at 7:05. There was hardly a drop until around 8:30. I'm assuming that they held off the start in order to protect Jordan Zimmermann's first start as well as the bullpen. If they had started on time, Zimmermann would have had to sit once the rains came. The bullpen would have been stuck with probably 5-6 innings to fill (again), and Zimmermann's debut would have been ruined. That's a call that came from upstairs, and it's a good sign that someone up there is thinking.
