Bobblehead controversy hits MLB; Sarah Stage is Fox-y
The Rays and Red Sox were rained out on Wednesday night. Boston chose to make up the game on Thursday with a day-night doubleheader, much to the dismay of Tampa Bay, which wanted to play at a later date. The Rays thought the Red Sox insisted on playing the double dip on Thursday because they had to give out Dustin Pedroia bobbleheads and Fenway didn't have enough storage space to hold them. Boston officials denied this. However, that didn't stop the Rays from throwing a few daggers.
"It does feel good," infielder Ben Zobrist said. "I hope everybody enjoyed their bobblehead."
"They asked for it," catcher Jose Molina said. "That's what we came out today pretty much saying: 'Well, they want us to play today, let's beat them twice.'" Tampa won both games on Thursday, 6-5 and 2-1.
Lastly, Rays manager Joe Maddon chimed in via Twitter.
Proud of our boys . All the convoluted stuff yesterday, then spending all day in Fenway's diminutive clubhouse made it tough to win a split.— Joe Maddon (@RaysJoeMaddon) May 2, 2014
