Jeepers, they really screwed up the Sunday schedule.

That is a bummer to sit around all that time waiting! Though you might like to know that resuming a game is up to the head umpire, not anyone at the Red Sox. They were just warming up their pitcher in case the umpires decided to proceed. The umpires watch the radar and look at local weather reports to determine whether to go ahead with the game. It is always their intention to proceed, and they will wait for hours to try to get the game in. They also determine when the next game is played, albeit with input from both teams. Believe me, I know the feeling...I am often waiting for my husband to return from these seemingly unending rain-delayed games. Sometimes the rain delay lasts longer than the actual game would have!
