CBS: Who’s The Evil Empire Now? Rays Say Rule Gives BoSox Right To Force Doubleheader

The Red Sox lobbied for a doubleheader to be played Thursday after rain in Boston washed out Wednesday’s scheduled game against the Tampa Bay Rays.

The struggling Rays wanted no part of a double dip.

But this one goes to the Red Sox, mainly because Boston gets what it wants, according to the Tampa Bay Times:

“Rays acting player rep Ben Zobrist said that their objections — which officially included a questionable weather forecast for today, and several other makeup possibilities during May and September visits — didn’t matter.

“In short, the Rays were told by MLB that the Red Sox (and Cubs) have exceptions to the standard rules in the Basic Agreement ‘to basically exercise their own right to do what they want to do.’ “
