No. Somebody would have had to throw on three-days rest to do that.

Just so everyone who was going to attend the Sox batting practice tomorrow knows, I just got off the phone with my season ticket rep, and he told me it has been cancelled.

Not good. Oh well. What can you do to mother nature besides pollute more?

Lets go get two tomorrow!

Ah, too bad. Now we're going to have to see some call ups make the starting roster for the second game. :o:

Weather looks good for tomorrow... sunny/upper 60's

Hopefully we win both but it's usually very difficult to win both of a double-header.

If you purchase a ticket to that game, you may go. Otherwise, no.

Thanks, and for future reference........if I had tickets for a 1:05 one day and they scheduled a doubleheader that night, could I stay?

LOL. Either way you look at it, it won't work.

Unavoidable with the weather, but this sucks. Now the Sox either have to pitch someone on 3 days rest or let Broadway start a game. In a season that might come down to one game, this doesn't help.

You're right, it makes things messy. I don't think Adam Russell has pitched much lately, going from memory. Wondering if they're planning to give him a spot start with this latest development.

Does anyone think there will ever be a regular
(by that I mean not "split") doubleheader again?:geezer:

They have regular doubleheaders in the Northern League lol

I got as far as Western on the Blue Line till I heard about the postponement. Oh well, here's to a Vazquez win!

that kinda sucked but it's okay I would prefer a 2-0 tomorrow but as long as the sox split that will be fine. The magic number goes down but if we are able to somehow take 2 that will make the magic number 16 and 15 at the highest if Minnesota loses. That is doubtable since they are playing the lowly royals but you never know.

I do. I was at one in 2004 I think against the Orioles. It was a Thursday, so it was dollar dog day, all day. I must have had 10. If it's late in the year and it doesn't mean anything as far as playoff implications, I don't see why they wouldn't do it.

So with Vazquez pitching today instead of last night, what does this do to the rotation come Saturday? That would have been Vazquez' turn again, but he'd be on 3 days of rest. Broadway? hmmm. I'm curious because I'm actually heading down to the game with some tigers fans friends of mine and don't want to take too much crap from them.

I think you're wrong. If we were out of this thing and this afternoons game didn't mean squat, i think they would do it back to back. It costs more to have the cleaning crews come twice and security twice.

Are tickets for this afternoon still half off?

Probably not, the average ticket price in the cheapest price schedule is about $20.50. Even with a paltry crowd of 17,000 that's still almost $350,000 for 1 game.

Do you honestly think that if we were out of it that they would get 17k for this afternoons game? I don't think they'll get 17k there and we're in it.

Eh, it's paid attendence. The season ticket base alone is going to get you 12k or so even if no one shows up. As this is a makeup for a rainout, everyone who bought tickets for the half-price night (which is typically more than other September games), 17k is very doable.

Sox drew 30k on Monday, September 10 of last year and the Sox were way out of it. Even if it had rained out and been played tuesday afternoon, announced attendance would still be 28k+.

Checked the on-line ticket site and they are selling them for half price.

I am tempted....

If Burnette Keeps pitching like this, I smell a double header sweep on the horizon :(:
