Here’s a guess: the roof at Rogers Center in Toronto will be closed tonight when the Blue Jays host the New York Mets. There’s about a 70 percent chance of thunderstorms when these two teams square off in an interleague showdown.
The Mets are a game better, record-wise, than the Jays, but Toronto scorched the New Yorkers 8-zip Monday night. Bartolo Colon is on the mound for the Mets, and the Jays will start R.A. Dickey. (I love knuckleballers.)
