Yankees, Indians will play doubleheader on May 13th


The Yankees and Indians will play a doubleheader on May 13th to make up the two rainouts from earlier this week, the team announced. Both teams are losing an off-day (obviously), and the Yankees will have to make a quick one-day stop in Cleveland on their way back from Kansas City before returning to New York. As a result of losing the off-day, they’ll play 17 games in 16 days. Not too bad.

    not too bad? well, for an older team, better May than August I guess

      I’m pretty sure he was being sarcastic

    Maybe a Brett Marshall call up for an emergency start…

    • Travis L.

      Here’s to hoping he has a better start than Warren did in the same situation.

    • Havok9120

      We better hope that isn’t necessary.

    • Laz

      I would think Phelps and Warren would be ahead of him.

      • Pseudoyanks

        Agree. Depends on if all 5 current starters are healthy and long relief innings those guys pitch prior to 5/13. Think that was Havok’s point.

    What if it rains that day, too?

    Not entirely out of the realm of possibility.

    Cleveland isn’t very out of the way between KC and NY. Much better than them having to make a trip out to the west coast to remake it up.

  • OldYanksFan

    All things considered, this turned out pretty good.
    Cleveland is a bit more than halfway between KC and NY. It looks like they are only flying a few hundred miles (maybe an hour) out of their way.

    And playing these games after playing KC is a lot better then after playing Detroit or another heavy hitter.
    It is also good that the Yanks go Home after Cleveland, as opposed more Road games after.

    When they get home, they then have 3 night games against Seattle.
    So it’s a drag to lose an off day, but all in all, it could have been a lot, lot worse.

      Considering the amount of money these guys are paid, I think they’re capable of missing an off day especially since they’re playing a game, not digging ditches.

      Forgive me if I have no sympathy for their plight.

    Of course! Millionaire don’t get tired playing 17 games in 16 days and traveling all over the place in between.

    Millionaires are not human.

    • Manny’s BanWagon

      Poor reading comprehension, I see.

      No one said millionaires don’t get tired. Getting tired playing a bunch of games without an off day is a small sacrifice to pay for living a charmed life.

    Double-header, with both games being make-ups.

      See, all that “work” we put in that night wasn’t in vain.
