Challenge of Sept. 8th makeup game “going nowhere”By
Via Pete Caldera, the Yankees challenge of their September 8th makeup game with the Orioles is “going nowhere.” That’s a makeup for one of today’s games, which were postponed because of Hurricane Irene.
September 8th is basically the team’s only off-day next month. They’ll play that game in Baltimore, then immediately fly to the west coast for six games. They’ll have a day off one week later, but that’s just for travel back east, which hardly qualifies as “off.” The Orioles didn’t want to play a doubleheader yesterday because they’d lose the gate, which is understandable by also kinda ridiculous when you consider that several other teams made similar arrangements due to the storm.
