And they tried to get the road game moved to NY? Swine. Although it might have been worth it to see the reaction of the Red Sox fans. :wink:

The Red Sox were furious that MLB ordered them to play the second game on Saturday but simply played the game. The field conditions were awful.

Game 2 fans will be refunded which the team didn't have to do.

When a team visits a city for the final time in a season, MLB and NOT the team has control of go or no go. What happened Saturday was a farce but..

Because of Irene the MLB and the Red Sox moved the game on Sunday to Saturday and then made the game times Noon and 5 PM... They thought the Noon game would have no weather problem but they were very wrong.

After the 6th inning there was a one hour delay, they played the 7th and the delay was 2:30 minutes. The score was 9-2 Boston. Joe Torre called the umpires and told them they could not play Game 2 unless Game 1 went the full nine innings.

Then the Red Sox tell Game 2 ticket holders they could enter the park even though Game 1 was still in a rain delay.

Game 2 would then have a long delay in the Top of the 5th and the Red Sox then announced anybody could enter the park for free. It was a joke.

The Yankees are hard to take, due in no small part to tantrums like this. I hope that the Orioles beat them like a drum on September 8.

Why is that a farce? Its late in the season, you gotta do whatever you can to get the games in. Plus, it was a nice gesture to allow fans in free.

Field was better suited for water polo than baseball
