As the Dodgers wait to find out who they play in the NLDS, the game times for the first two games at Dodger Stadium were announced.

Tuesday night the Dodgers will watch as the Brewers and Nationals lay their seasons out on the line in the NL wild card game.  While the Dodgers do not yet know who they will play on Thursday and Friday, the game times were announced by MLB for the first two games of the NLDS:

Regardless of who wins the wild card game, the Dodgers will play around the same time on Friday night with only a ten-minute difference in start times.  The biggest difference would be for Thursday’s game which would be an hour earlier if the Washington Nationals are able to eliminate the Milwaukee Brewers.

So depending on whether you prefer an earlier or later start time that could help dictate who you choose to root for in Tuesday’s wild card game.  Dodger fans in Los Angeles will surely be rooting for the later start time given the traffic that always occurs and the amount of time it takes to get into Dodger Stadium.

In addition to game times, the umpire crew was also announced for the Dodgers’ NLDS.  The biggest takeaway is that Angel Hernandez and Joe West are not part of the crew which is a good thing given how they tend to put on an “ump show”.  Angel Hernandez, in particular, has a bad history with the Dodgers and a history of questionable strike zones.
