unfortunate for the Yankees. They have the most to lose by a doubleheader. Most of the time a team doesn’t win both games of a doubleheader so Yankees could lose one of these games tomorrow at a time when they need every game to keep pace with Baltimore. Why is Phelps pitching the evening game? I thought he had gone to the bull pen with Pettitte and Nova coming back. Also as fans who wants to try to watch two games on the same day? You can’t help the weather but could the game not have been postponed to a later date? Anyway, disappointing.
