    Angels Not in Favor of Schedule Change

    Mike DiGiovanna
    LA Times

    BALTIMORE — Officials from Major League Baseball and the players' union have approached the Angels on behalf of the Boston Red Sox to request a scheduling change that would require the Angels to play a day-night doubleheader against the Red Sox on Sept. 7 in Fenway Park.

    But the Angels have no plans to accommodate the request, which was made so the Red Sox can make up a rainout against the Chicago White Sox on Monday, Sept. 5, and have an off day on Sept. 6.


    The Angels are scheduled to open a three-game series against the Red Sox on Sept. 6.

    "It would be difficult, at best, for our club to play a split doubleheader to reschedule a game we weren't involved in," Manager Mike Scioscia said.

    "There are ways to accommodate teams, and we always do our best, but a split doubleheader can zap you for three or four days afterward."

    The Red Sox were hoping to get Sept. 6 off because if they play the White Sox on Sept. 5 and proceed with their remaining schedule, they would play on 30 consecutive days.

    Baseball rules stipulate that teams cannot go more than 20 days without a day off without approval from the commissioner's office and the union, via a vote of the players involved.

    "We haven't been asked to get an official vote yet," said pitcher John Lackey, the Angels' acting union representative, "but I have a good idea that the vote is not going to go well for [the Red Sox]."

              hey, the Cards don't really like playing on the road since not all the best fans in baseball can attend.

              I would like to ask that our next few opponents agree to play the games here in StL.

                The Cubs went through something like this at the end of last year and even they didn't whine.

                  Well, wait, they probably whined, but they didn't do stuff like this.

                    Is this the other side of the story regarding the supposed decision by the White Sox to forfeit rather than play a make up game? If so, this is a whole different spin.

                      That's an excellent idea. I just looked at the Cardinals' schedule and there are not a whole lot of home games left. I would like to attend a few more games before the season ends and if all the away games would be played here, that would work out well for everyone I think.

                          Really, can't we leverage our 13 or 14 game lead to get more of our games played here at home. We should get some sort of perk for being so far ahead in our division.

                            With that kind of lead and no incentive for homefield in the Series, why even play the last week if you are the Cards and are going on the road?

                              the vote is not going to go well for [the Red Sox]."
                              Tsk, tsk, tsk. If only the media could vote.
