I've noticed over the years (maybe I'm wrong?) that MLB has been making up more and more "useless" games. I guess its all about the money.

The players union could also put pressure to get these games in too. Player salaries are based on putting up stats and if a game is just canceled, that's one less game to put up more stats.

The wily old veteran is 1st with the news while the raw boned youngster follows the vet with more news. Gotta love it.

I don't think they change stance at any point in the season. You make up the game when you can make it up. If you can't by the end of the year, and you need the game (like last year vs. the Tigers), then you make it up at the very end. If it was tomorrow's game, they wouldn't bother since the Indians have to be in Boston on Thursday. Since they're playing tomorrow, why not play two?

I can't imagine the net will be positive.

I suppose you get the rain checks off your books, but you take your lumps at concessions and parking. Maybe it's a lesser loss. :shrug:

The Indians still lose a gate with a "straight doubleheader," a.k.a. a rulebook doubleheader, as the official rules of major leaue baseball define a doubleheader as two games played on one day for a single admission.

Might even sell a few extra tickets to people who figure two games even ones that don't matter is still a good bang for the buck entertainmentwise...

It's always nice when a game matters in the playoff hunt, but there's something to be said for being able to sit back and enjoy a baseball game (or two) without a huge emotional investment...just because its baseball.

When was the last time the White Sox and Cubs each had a DH on the same day?

While it's never fun to have your team be out of it, there is something to be said for savoring the last few games of the season, as the leaves crunch under your feet, the daylight fades and a hint of frost is in the air.

Savoring the end of another season is like trying to grab on to Jell-o, it keeps sliding through your grasp.

The end of this year is sad to me. Watching this team has been a bummer at times, but I also feel like I missed the season. This is the first year since 2000 I didn't make it to at least Sox game (I didn't even make it to any MLB games at all), and that makes me sad.
