I think the reasoning is that MLB Network has been slated to show the early game (just like yesterday). There's no guarantee that the Giants-Reds series or the Tigers-A's series would be taking place, and there's no way in hell M(ajor) L(oser) B(ud) is giving the less desirable time slot to the Yank-mes. I guess they felt they had no choice but to stick us in that slot. I have a very accommodating supervisor, but I still feel really bad having to go to him at the last minute to ask for the day off. A later start might have meant being able to get half a day of work in, but that's tough with a 1pm start. I feel really bad for those of you who can't make it, and I would be among that group if I were in any of my previous jobs.
Here's your Wednesday lineup:
Orioles-Yankees 7:37 (of course)
* if necessary
I really hope the O's take the next three games to send the Yank-mes packing so we don't have to worry about playing second-fiddle to them for the rest of the playoffs.
