That was the revamped home schedule. The Sox actually opened the season with a DH at New York, winning both games. The Sox started 1982 8-0, a team record, and finished the year with 87 wins.

I remember two things about the start of that season-

The Sox were debuting the new unis, and there was a mystery as to what they would be. It was top secret. The snowouts prolonged the debut.

Also, Salome Barojas began that year as unhittable. Without looking it up, he had some crazy numbers in those first two weeks....maybe seven saves in the first eight games?

Five saves in the first eight games. Jerry Koosman had the other one.

I’m sitting here and watching the Angels playing the Royals with steady snowfall . I have seen plenty of football games in the snow but can’t say I have ever seen anything like this before.

As we all know, the Sox are playing very poorly in all facets right now. Whenever these postponed games are made up, the Sox almost certainly will be playing better at that time, because they could hardly do much worse than the current state of affairs.

Even if the games had been moved to Chicago with the Twins serving as the home team, I would like Minnesota's chances of earning a series win.

Some have suggested that this weekend being snowed out is a positive for the Sox because it will provide them a "mental break." Whether that yields better results when the team gets to Oakland, I'm not sure, but I also don't think these days off can hurt.
I agree that this snow hurts the Twins much more than the Sox. The next time they play us, they might be facing a different looking team. The Sox might be in a hot streak, Moncada might have figured things out, Kopech or Eloy (or both) could be up with the team, the bullpen issues might be more ironed out, etc. It is unlikely the Sox will be playing worse than they are now when the makeup games are scheduled. I do know that as a devout Twins hater, I would love to see the Sox win all 3 of these makeup games and help prevent the Twins from making the playoffs.

The league is clueless. Where is the players association to stop the nonsense?

Maybe, maybe not. I am not sure how you go about validating that assertion.

As for Jimenez & Kopech what about their time in service clock? Why start that early when is seems the popular belief is that a bad season leads to a better draft pick?

Even if Jimenez comes up this year how can anyone him to expect him to be preform anywhere near what he's done to date against lesser competition?

The same for Kopech. Each has a tremendous learning curve ahead of them.

I thought they were unveiled at the end of the '81 season when the fans voted on them?

No they didn't start being used until the 1982 season. You are thinking of the silver & black pinstripe uniforms which were unveiled late in the 1990 season at home against Milwaukee, Minnesota and Seattle.

I've seen Twins fans posting the exact same thoughts.

True, this was most likely an easy 2-of-3 for them, at worst.
