I don’t think you can go to cold-weather cities if you only go there one time. I think you have to stay within your division the first month. Or, I know teams want night games, but if we would have had a day game today, it gives you a longer window to play the game. I mean, it’s snowing in Minnesota and the Mets are there. I don’t know who can make the best snowman. […] It’s not what you want. We were swinging the bats really good. But you’ve got to deal with it.
— New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi, to the New York Daily News, after his team was rained out in consecutive games against the Cleveland Indians. The Yankees are not scheduled to return to Cleveland this season so the teams will be forced to make up games during days when both teams are scheduled to be off. May 13 appears to be one of the first days on the potential docket. No official announcement has been made, but Girardi was under the impression that the Yankees and Tribe would play a doubleheader on that date.
