I’m on vacation for the next week; so front page Sox comments will come from Hoss and Fanatic (I hope!). Anyway; it appears that as the day went on, others had the same questions I did regarding yesterday’s ‘rainout’.
NEW YORK (AP) — General manager Brian Cashman said it was “hogwash” that the New York Yankees might have postponed a game this week in order to keep struggling starter Jeff Weaver from pitching against the Mets.
The Yankees postponed Thursday’s game against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays about a half-hour after the scheduled 1:05 p.m. EDT start.
The rain stopped falling later in the afternoon, leading some to speculate that the Yankees called the game so quickly because they were eager to skip Weaver in the rotation.
