Irene forces Saturday doubleheader at Fenway

With Hurricane Irene expected to rip through the Northeast this weekend, the Red Sox and A’s have canceled their scheduled game for Sunday.

Instead, the clubs will play a split doubleheader at Fenway, with Game 1 at noon and Game 2 at 5 p.m.

Jon Lester and Erik Bedard will draw the pitching assignments for the Sox. The Red Sox players shot down a proposal of a split doubleheader — 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. — on Friday. The Sox aren’t expected to land at Logan Airport until about 5 a.m. on Friday.

I agree on that decision because of the impending Hurricane

Good move on their part, even if the lineups have to be juggled. Stay safe! GO SOX!

Has anyone heard from Ian? I hope that he and his family didn’t have any damage from Irene. Good Luck, Ian!
