It went one inning was postponed and they had to play a DH the next day which taxed the Sox staff.

It's time the Sox stopped being someone else's whipping boy and started asserting their rights.

On a team's last trip to a particular city, the call is strictly the umpires. Joe West is to blame for that one. He was flat out told there was no way the game could be played, but he started it anyway.
