    Wet forecast all day. Can't say I'm surprised.

        Forecast for tomorrow isn't much better.

          Typical April. If it's going to happen it's good that it will suck up two days of the IL stint for TA and others.

          I agree it's good they called it early. Give the players more rest. Everyone should be sharp and ready to go when they resume playing.

            I have tix for tomorrow.......

            Good thing about calling it today is this is another day of rest for the Bullpen and one day off the long run of games that would have started today.

              This cancellation just goes to show that the Friday off day wasn’t very well thought out.

                Huh? It was scheduled months ago before they knew what the weather would be like. In the northern outdoor cities, the day after the home opener is always an off day in case the opener doesn't happen.

                  Sox gain half a game on the Twins as Colome blows a tie game. Hope the extra 2 days of rest does not throw the starters off balance.

                    Disagree. I think the reason they scheduled the opener on Thursday followed by an off-day on Friday was to allow the opener to be rescheduled on Friday if the Thursday opener was rained out.

                    The Sox typically open their home schedule against divisional teams to allow rainouts to be rescheduled for later in the season more easily. Playing these early season games against a team making only one visit to Chicago would require an extra trip back or trying to shoehorn the makeup game into a double header during their one visit.

                      So happy that both we didn't resign him and that the Twins did.

                        Yes, I understand that this is how they do the scheduling. But does this really make sense? You have a contingency plan on the off chance that one day out of 162 is rained out.

                        Let’s say they started the series on a Friday like normal - they’d be in exactly the same position as they’re in now, with a game to make up later in the schedule. If the opener happened to get rained out, then you have the opener on Saturday. If they want to schedule in an off day in case there is a rainout (a good bet this time of year), do it on Sunday, that way if any game in the series is rained out it can be made up.

                          For some teams the only guaranteed sellout they get is opening day. It's a big money day and fans spend extra on memorabilia on those days also. Owners want to make sure they get a "real opening day" because for many fans it's the biggest draw of the year and they hate to miss it, so the money rains down.

                            It isn't just the money. It's the ceremony. For many fans, the home opener is a ritual. The two-day window for the opener, which is standard for teams in the Midwest and East, is about showing respect to those fans as well as being for the money.
