That is correct, unless the visiting team will not be coming back at the end of the year. Then, is up to the umps and MLB. If the Sox were playing a team that wasn't coming back again, they would've had no choice but to play tonight. Since Minnesota is a division team, it's not an issue.

I was at a game on Friday night against the Twins a few year ago. The wind chill was like 18 or something. By the fourth inning, we went to the bullpen bar. By the 6th, we left. The Sox were getting killed anyway.

And of course, we went to the next game. It was about 30 degrees, but it was at least sunny and no wind. The Sox won like 8-0. We stayed for the whole game. There were probably less than 5k still around by the end. Getting out of the parking lot was a breeze. That is the only game I stayed until the end where this was the case...

This means Sale won't be pitching next Tuesday when I'm there like he was scheduled to.

Without a doubt. This was a business decision.

Didn't the Sox do the same thing one night on the same night of a Bulls playoff game?

It was just hailing outside downtown an hour ago. It isn't like they are going to draw worth **** for a random makeup game anyway.

I also wouldn't put it past the Sox if Hahn who was on this 10 game road trip and saw how bad things were going, didn't talk to Robin along these lines...

"The weather is supposed to be pretty bad Friday, if there's a reasonable chance to postpone would you have any problems with this?"

Give the guys a day off, try to get their heads back together and hopefully play under better conditions Saturday. Hell these guys had trouble hitting the ball under pretty good conditions in Washington and Toronto...what makes anybody think they'd do better when it's freezing outside?

I'm glad it was postponed. Sitting out there tonight freezing to death is not my idea of fun. I'm sure the players are glad it was postponed also. Also, a day off after that miserable road trip might do some good for the team.

So, is this considered a chill out?

Default Makeup date announced at a later time

Jake Peavy gets the start Saturday afternoon. All of the other White Sox starters move back one day in the rotation, with Gavin Floyd starting Sunday's series finale and Dylan Axelrod opening the Cleveland series Monday night at home.

This postponement is the sixth in the history of U.S. Cellular Field due to cold temperatures. The most recent postponement due to cold was on April 10, 2008, vs. the Twins.


Both teams have an off-day on Thursday, Aug. 8, before the Twins' three-game series that weekend in Chicago. If that was the makeup date selected, the Twins would play from July 30 to August 26 without an off-day, meaning it would be more likely that the two teams would play a weekend doubleheader and maintain Thursday's off-day.

I think this was just a case where it really was just too cold to play.

Too simple. Even if the snow was coming down sideways up here, there must have been some nefarious purpose in the postponement.

We would also not have an off-day from July 19 to August 18 if that was the makeup date.

The Twins are also back in Chicago from September 16-18, which comes at the end of another 20-straight stretch for the Sox and is in the middle of a 20-straight stretch for the Twins to end the season.

This is the third postponement for the Twins already this year, who have to makeup home games with the Mets and the Angels.

Default They did the right thing

I don't get through Chicago very often but was there yesterday. Cold weather doesn't bother me too much so I was prepared to buy a warm hat and gloves and head down with an almost-free ticket from StubHub. But that's my choice - the vendors, ushers etc. wouldn't have that choice. Plus, season ticket holders and those with tickets purchased at face value would have needed to suck it up or eat their tickets.

There are five months to get this game played, CWS management did the right thing.
