Red Sox: We’re going to try to play

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on Sep 26, 2008 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

This press release from the Red Sox:

The current weather forecast (provided by the Red Sox private weather service, Meteorlogix) in the vicinity of Fenway Park calls for the possibility of a break in today’s rain showers, which are currently moving through the area, beginning in the very late afternoon hours. We are hopeful this will allow tonight’s Red Sox-Yankees game to be played as scheduled.

The Fenway Park gates will open at the regularly scheduled time of 5:05 p.m., and the Red Sox will do everything possible to play tonight’s game, which is scheduled to start at 7:05 p.m. However, the Red Sox want to alert our fans to the current forecast.

With the uncertainty of tonight’s forecast and the potential of delay in the start of the game, the ceremony for the retirement of Johnny Pesky’s uniform number, scheduled for this evening, has been moved to Sunday, September 28. It will take place at approximately 1:15 p.m. prior to the Red Sox-Yankees game at 1:35 p.m.

This forecast is of course subject to change as the day progresses. Additional updates will be provided periodically.

Sounds like we could be here for a while. Oh, goodie.

    oh, and if anyone’s interested, I just mailed my big bad letter of doom :-D

    This changes our off-season plans dramatically. We must sign 2 FA pitchers. Any combination of CC, Burnett, Lowe, Sheets, Perez, Garland,

    Now Joba needs to be available on standby to take over for MO. If thats the case, Hughes can slide right into his spot in the rotation.

    This is why Hughes needs to be the 6th starter this year, way too many things can happen and we need to have extra starters. We don’t need to dip into the Rasner/Giese pool again.

  6. Jose September 26th, 2008 at 3:26 pm

    So now Cashman throws his hand-picked manager under the bus?

    What a dysfunctional organization, top to bottom.

  7. Rishi September 26th, 2008 at 3:27 pm

    Rebecca – any way for the rest of us to read it:)

    Guys/Girls click on EDUB’s link I’m telling you that’s FREAKING HILARIOUS !!!

    “At least we have a debate to watch.”

    I’d rather eat my shoes.

    90 minutes of 2 guys telling us why we shouldn’t vote for the other guy instead of why we should vote for them.

    The Red Sox have their own private weather service. How come we dont have one of those LMAO. I tend to think that the weather is the weather, the map is the map.

    Just spitting here in the citynot downpouring like it was earlier in the day

    I really hope it gets read, Rebecca. It deserves to be.

    Angel: Thank you. I doubt it will get read by more than an intern, but hey, like I said, here’s hoping :)

  15. Rob NY -- 2009 The Road to Redemption September 26th, 2008 at 3:33 pm

    OY About the 5th time i posted in the wrong thread.

    Bravo E-Man I don’t know why any of us question the mighty Yankee line. It really is infuriating that anyone thinks they should have access to athletes outside of the lines. Ask Joe questions pertaining to the field of play and only the field of play. That stuff will be engrossing and keep you completely satisfied. The Yankees will give you all of the information you need about injuries and never lie. If you think you need anything else, go get a lobotomy, because you’re crazy. 9-10 fans agree, Joe Girardi is a truthspeaker!

  16. Bronx Jeers September 26th, 2008 at 3:34 pm

    “Guys/Girls click on EDUB’s link I’m telling you that’s FREAKING HILARIOUS !!!”

    I’ll second that. Hilarious!

    Watch it.

  17. Cobra 272 September 26th, 2008 at 3:34 pm

    It’s just funny how badly Girardi lied… he actually said Mo was just getting a standard end of year physical and wanted to get it done now and he would fly to Boston and be available all weekend.

    LOL

  18. Fredo Corleone September 26th, 2008 at 3:34 pm

    “The Red Sox have their own private weather service. How come we dont have one of those”

    This must have been part of what SJ was talking about when he said the Yankees need to add staff to the base operations side of the business. ;)

  19. Sea Net September 26th, 2008 at 3:35 pm

    Mussina is a Bears fan? Wow

  20. CB September 26th, 2008 at 3:35 pm

    Forget Girardi yet again lying to the media.

    Mo’s shoulder has been sore for a while. Bone spurs don’t happen overnight.

    Why did Mo pitch 4 times in 5 days between Sept 19-23?

    Why did he pitch 3 games in a row between Sept 13-15th?

    What was Girardi thinking? He wanted the yankees to win the championship of teams playing irrelevant games and not making the playoffs?

    I don’t buy for a second that this “cranky” body or whatever it is just started.

    Perhaps Mo didn’t say anything about it. That’s possible. But given how rapidly this all took place – and given how quickly Cashman brought up the possibility of surgery I don’t buy it. They knew.

    If Mo wanted to play out the string to pitch in the last game at the stadium and the doctors said that was ok fine.

    But why pitch him so many times in meaningless games?

  21. Fredo Corleone September 26th, 2008 at 3:37 pm

    *base = baseball

  22. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Brotherhood of the Fist September 26th, 2008 at 3:37 pm

    EDUB, that was amazing, thanks for linking it!!

  23. Rishi September 26th, 2008 at 3:40 pm

    Great Letter, Rebecca!! It deserves to be read…

  24. Brandon (We'll miss you Yankees Stadium !)..."Keep Manny away !" September 26th, 2008 at 3:40 pm

    Oh god the concierge bunting for the players, quartet playing in the OF :lol:

  25. Brandon (We'll miss you Yankees Stadium !)..."Keep Manny away !" September 26th, 2008 at 3:41 pm

    New Yankee Vacation Stadium

    Thanks EDUB :lol:

  26. mel September 26th, 2008 at 3:42 pm

    Oi, that was hilarious. The artist renditions with the valet bunting for Alex & the “guest house” stadium were too funny.

    Thanks, E-dub

  27. Weather Man September 26th, 2008 at 3:47 pm

    CB, Excellent point.

    Girardi was abusing MO in meaningless games… something Girardi was accused of in Florida.

    We haven’t played a meaningful game since the Red Sox series in August. No reason to use MO more than twice or so a week and certainly not 2-3 days in a row. Use Bruney or Veras to close the game… if they blow it, who cares? These games are meaningless.

    Girardi is a liar and has no idea how to handle pitchers.
    Cashman doesn’t get of the hook either, no reason for him to throw the manager under the bus.

  28. EDUB September 26th, 2008 at 3:50 pm

    haha yeah no problem. I love the string quartet and massage chairs. onion is too funny

  29. anatinc September 26th, 2008 at 4:02 pm

    It’s still raining steadily here north of Boston…this is the Sox trying to get some concessions money out of those dumb enough to go tonight. No way they get tonight’s game in, and I doubt they’ll play tomorrow either. My guess is a day/night doubleheader if the games mean anything for the AL East pennant race; otherwise, a single game on Sunday.

  30. anatinc September 26th, 2008 at 4:06 pm

    Should have read day/night doubleheader on Sunday….

  31. OldYanksFan September 26th, 2008 at 4:22 pm

    Rebecca… possible you could write something to Bush about the price of gas? Soon, that will cost more then the Yankee tickets!

    “It’s still raining steadily here north of Boston…this is the Sox trying to get some concessions money out of those dumb enough to go tonight.”

    Just so you know, because it is the last series of the year it is MLB that makes the decision on the game. Has nothing to do with concession money.
