My guess is they adjusted the schedule for the Sox to play the Marlins on a weekend when Ozzie and MB were still on that team.
The Yankees, Red Sox, and Tigers sell pretty well regardless of what night they fall on, I don't think it helps the Sox attendance-wise at all to have more popular opponents coincide with already popular days for games.
