Bob Melvin is confused

D'Backs manager Bob Melvin seems kind of upset by the decision to cancel yesterday's game at 2 PM:

It's a little confusing that we've got some time here but, for whatever reason, it's canceled -- I guess because they forecast rain for a while. We had time to sit around but, obviously, we're not in charge of that.
He's upset because the makeup is scheduled for June 19th, which now gives his team a game every day between May 26th and June 25th. The reasoning that we wanted to bury Oliver Perez in the rotation and give him some extra time to work on the side (which is what should've been happening a long time ago) probably won't fly with Bob Melvin.
