    5 games to literally just play and avoid injuries.

    As a wise man once said, "It's much more fun to win". He was right, this season has been a barrel full of fun, some might say the most fun ever.

    I could see this game being cancelled outright. The big concern is what happens to the Pedro bobble head dolls.

    I’ll often post weather reports from Kevin Roth, he’s a meteorologist who works for fantasy sites and gives specific forecasts as they relate to games. For my money he has the best, most detailed and reliable forecasts I’ve found...
    For today’s game it currently is listed as Red (a day away for fantasy purposes) and simply says, “I just...I don’t think so”

    Certainly sounds and seems like a day you’d call things well ahead of time (especially with the game not mattering in the standings). Wonder if they will force fans to show up so they can honor the promotion, or if they can just redeem those outside later in the week to ticket holders or something like that.

    They probably either call it in next 2 hours, or try to trudge through 8:30-11:30 or so. Don't want people getting bobbleheads twice.

    Regarding the bobble head dolls I'm sure they only made the 10,000+ for the giveaway. They're not gonna re-order and re-issue.

    I put an e-mail into our season ticket rep last night that has gone unanswered.

    What I mean is, if you postpone late, you're going to have the same people pick up twice, not that you're going to give up twice as many. People not coming for the bobbles are going to wait to arrive with the rain if they think it wont be played. I firmly believe 10,000 is enough for people to double dip if you postpone at a certain time.

    They're in a lose/lose here. Best option is cancel early and order more of the giveaways. This is the most desirable giveaway of the season and they're better off forgoing exclusivity in favor of fan satisfaction.

    I plan on being at the gates when they open unless an announcement is made early.

    Honestly, I don;t even see why they went from 35k to 10k, other than $ (selling more concessions and spending less on the giveaways).

    Oh wait . . .
    I'm very disappointed at their behavior toward fan satisfaction recently. It's like they think after 3 titles, the fans will love them (ownership/management) no matter what.

    No word yet on the bobble head dolls, I would assume a giveaway at the 1 pm game, but they're gonna have to go into damage control for the people that can't make that game.

    Never understood why they don't ship them to people. Just increase fees when there are giveaways and ship them. No one really likes holding them during the game.


    Especially for the limited version ones that you have to pick up at the Twins store.

    How would they decide who gets them when shipping since there are only 10k and it's first come, first serve?

    Yeah, to have only 10,000 bobbleheads for nearly 40,000 people is a little crazy. The Red Sox make like $2,500,000 at the gate per game.

    if one of the games doesn't get in tomorrow, they'll just outright cancel it. I guess until then you try to play them because money.

    Yes, I am pretty sure that I exist also, but I don't make any decrees about the weather that I expect to be fulfilled. I am lacking in that regard. :(

    The goal is to get fans in the ballpark early to buy more concessions instead of walking in at game time. If everyone gets one it defeats the purpose.

    It'll be pretty interesting. A traditional doubleheader complete with minor leaguers, and...

    One team with absolutely nothing to play for.

    Versus the Red Sox.

    Did he say why he expected it to be fulfilled? ;)

    I am adrift. I prepared myself for the eventuality of no baseball tonight. However, my preparations did not include the matter of the rain, which is obviously inherent in the lack of baseball. In short, I am an idiot and this sucks.

    Apparently, Cora said that the Red Sox want the winner of the WC game to have to travel from the west coast, making the Sox weekend series relevant. The guy on MLBN reporting this made it sound like Cora was adamant about it.

    With the A's sputtering to the finish line, Cora can want it but that game taking place in Oakland looks less and less likely. One bright side is that if the A's can somehow win at the Toilet, they will not be on a huge roll, despite whatever bounce they get from that win. Not the biggest of things but it's not as if the A's are on fire right now.

    Great Series. This one went 8 Games, (one ended in a tie due to darkness). Christy Mathewson and Smokey Joe Wood featured for New York (Giants) and Boston respectively. And as boxosll points out, good guys won...

    I watched last night’s A’s game, and, man did they ever kick it away. Rodney and Chapman. More descriptions in the MLB September games thread. Out here they’re touting Matt Chapman for the gold glove. He made the error of his life last night.

    Couple fun facts. The '62 Mets finished 60.5 games out of first. That's where the Orioles sit right now. And the run differential between Boston and Baltimore is 480.
