Yanks want Friday DH, O's say no

NEW YORK -- Concerned about a schedule that gives them just two off days the rest of the season, and about a weather forecast that puts Saturday and Sunday games in jeopardy, the Yankees wanted the Orioles to play a doubleheader Friday in Baltimore.

The Orioles refused.

"Absolutely no chance," one Orioles person said Thursday.

The Yankees and Orioles are scheduled to play five games in the next four days, with a day-night doubleheader scheduled for Saturday, but Hurricane Irene is expected to bring heavy rain through the area at some point over the weekend.

"I don't know what you do if you don't [play a Friday doubleheader]," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "I don't know if they would be made up in our ballpark. I don't know if you would make them up in December."

Hurricane Irene also threatens games in Philadelphia, New York and Boston. The Phillies have already announced that they will play Sunday's scheduled game as part of a day-night doubleheader Saturday. The A's and Red Sox are only scheduled for three games, but Irene could hit the New England area on Sunday. The A's are scheduled to play Monday in Cleveland, eliminating the chance of playing a makeup game that day.

Big Lebowski,
I don't see where it says that they insisted on a straight doubleheader.  The O's could have scheduled it as a day/night today, if they wished, as they originally did for tomorrow. And they won't play two doubleheaders anyway, since tomorrow night's game, at least, will be rained out. In fact, bith games tomorrow will most lilkely be called, meaning that they will need to make up those two games either on Sunday and Monday (leading to two doubleheaders) - or, since Sunday will most likely also be rained out, then a double header Monday and a double header in some off day in September.

I do understand the Oriole's reluctance to give up a Yankee ticket sale, though. By waiting until weather postpones the game, they get to keep the ticket sales. If they acted proactively by postponing or moving the games, they might be forced to refund the sales for the affected games, and the Yankees and Red Sox are their big sellers. By comparison, they have gotten 18 to 21,000 per game for the Tigers and Blue Jays over the last few weekends, compared to 38,000 to 39,000 Sox and Yankee Friday/Saturday games earlier this year.

Or, since MLB does not play gamnes after the season to determine seeding, it is possible that they could choose to not make up the games, and have the Yankees season last only 160 games instead of 162, determining the division winner based on Winning. Since both the Yankees and Sox will be going, it's only their seed that is in question.

Meanwhile, the Phillies, Mets, and Sox have all already called off games Saturday and Sunday, in reaction to the potential seriousness of this storm, and the city of Baltimore has declared a State of Emergency, as has the governor, for low lying areas and areas near to bodies of water. Fortunately, Camden Yards isn't anywhere near the water... well, except for the fact that's 3 blocks from the harbor.

(disclaimer - I grew up on a barrier beach ands have noted that a ton of storms-of-the-century have turned out to hit as hard as Omar Moreno - so this could turn out to just be as dangerous as Mario Mendoza)
