Travel plans

The Cubs consulted a sleep doctor — yes, a sleep doctor — before booking their team charter flight to Los Angeles. On that doctor’s advice, they will fly to Los Angeles TOMORROW, not tonight after the game.\
This is Lou Piniella:
“He said we should stay overnight tonight instead of travel after the ballgame … so that everybody can get their full balance of sleep as opposed to sleeping all day tomorrow and not being able to sleep the night after. We’ll see if he is right or not after the third game.”
The Dodgers, who presumably did NOT consult a sleep doctor, will fly home immediately after tonight’s game. Joe Torre said it’s because the team is going home, and that if the Dodgers had opened at home and were now flying to Chicago, they might consider doing what the Cubs are doing.
