Monday's Brewers-Phillies game postponed

Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE

With significant rain in the forecast for tomorrow and a rain date built in on Tuesday, the Phillies made an early decision to postpone the game.

In a bit of a surprise move, the Philadelphia Phillies have decided to postpone their home opener tomorrow against the Brewers to Tuesday.  The surprise is more from the decision being made so early, but with significant rain in the forecast for tomorrow and a rain date built in for Tuesday, the move was made this afternoon.

It's a smart decision for the Phillies.  Tomorrow's forecast for Philadelphia has a significant chance of rain all afternoon and evening, so the chances of the game being postponed anyway were high.  By doing this, they can save many fans and employees time and money tomorrow.  By Tuesday, the threat of rain will be gone from the forecast, and the next three days look good for baseball.

This will also give the few Brewers players who are dealing with early season injuries (Ryan Braun, Jean Segura) a day to rest.  Granted, the day was built in anyway, they just get it a day sooner now.

Tuesday'game will start at 3:05 pm, and will still be televised by FS Wisconsin.
