The game tonight has been washed away. No word on a reschedule.
Does that mean there’s a chance of Schilling vs. Johnson matchup tomorrow? Hmmm…..
We’ll be here:
Of course, nationally televised game that I can watch in NC and it rains.
I’m bummed, but on the plus side of things I can read my book tonight.
I know it’s a cheap way for it to happen, but the Yanks are guaranteed to come out of this series in 1st place. No more Sox-Yanks rivalry for 2 1/2 months after tommorrow night.
BY78: and thank god for that. We’ll need to restock on ulcer medications as it is.
By the way, Boston Globe reports that the makeup has been scheduled for the weekend of September 15.
This is good for the Sox pitching staff, what with that double-header on Saturday.
if tonight is rained out, and thursday rained out
we could be loking at a 5 gamer in fenway in middle agust
and a 5 gamer in new york the first week in september
10 game sin under 2 1/2 weeks that could determine the division….
man I love this rivalry :D
Hoping it doesn’t rain in Bston this weekend. When the heck would we make up those Texas games??
Laura: your question got me thinking about fatigue as the season progresses, and the wear and tear on two banged-up rosters. I checked the schedules, and found that New York and Boston each have only two days off in August, which includes a five game series with the Yanks at Fenway played in four days. A morning/afternoon double header leads off a streak of 21 games in 20 days for Boston, including a nine-game west coast road trip.
Boston has four days off in September, but a double header to make up today’s game in Yankee stadium on the 15th.
Interesting numbers, AG. Those really aren’t going to be good. During that 21 over 20 stretch, we will probably have to call someone up to make a spot start. There really isn’t a plausible way to set the rotation without someone going on short rest, and that’s not really something you want to do so late in the season. That is, assuming we are still in postseason contention, which I would guess we will be.
Better than last September’s horrors. 30 straight games or whatever it was…
They should just play out the schedule with no Yanks-Sox games, and then have the two teams go for a 19 game playoff series for all the marbles in October.
Family Papelbon, Sox deafted Paps brother Josh in the 48th round.
Wonder if he goes by Joshathan.
The Cubbies dratfted Josh’s twin also.
