Just walked down the street to grab a sandwich here in Baltimore. On my way back to the hotel, the rain started falling, but I’m still waiting for all the craziness. I’m sure it’s coming, but it’s not here just yet.
The sky looks threatening, but if the Yankees and Orioles had pushed up today’s first game to 10 a.m. or so, I think they would have had a chance of getting through it. At the very least, they almost certainly could have played six-plus innings. That’s the way it looks to me, anyway.
Speaking to the Daily News, a spokesman from the Orioles said the Yankees ideas for a schedule change this weekend were unacceptable for fans planning to attend these games.
“Floating an idea for a Friday doubleheader to media hours before contacting the home club, and then attempting to make our fans turn around in less than 24 hours and make arrangements to come to a weekday afternoon game was simply not acceptable to us,” Greg Bader said. “Certainly not when Sunday night, Monday afternoon and two mutual off days available in September were more reasonable options.”
