I'm relaying what I'm being told from the Sox. I don't think MLB is deliberately trying to screw the Sox but someone in scheduling isn't thinking this through and the Sox are getting the short end over it. The Sox aren't getting concerned because they have nothing better to do with their time are they?
I don't see how slating 16 home games in April in cold miserable weather is going to benefit a franchise that is having attendence issues.
That doesn't make sense to me. Maybe it does to you however, if that's the case, so be it.
