Lots of rain is expected in Boston today. MLB wants teams to play all 162 (as they should), so we could have a doubleheader on Saturday or Sunday if tpday’s game is rained out.
Boston is likely on its way to Anaheim early next week, so the last thing they want is a double dip on Sunday. There could be lots of waiting around at Fenway Park this weekend.
The players, most of them anyway, packed up their stuff in New York last week. Once the final game is played in Boston, they will scatter to their homes. Don’t expect the Yankees to work too many counts on that final day.
Meanwhile, yes, they will haze the rookies. Sources say that the youngsters will not enjoy their trip back to the team hotel tonight as part of it will be on foot wearing, um, interesting clothing.
I’ll check back later with the news from Boston and the lineup, if there’s a game.
