Short-term win

I can't say that I'm looking forward to all the games the Red Sox are going to have to make up later in the season, but on a purely personal level, I was mighty pleased, on getting up at 1am to watch the game, that it had been postponed due to bad weather.

I am lucky enough to not need eight hours' sleep a night, and I can get into a fairly good rhythm with games at 7pm ET, but even so, three consecutive games on worknights would have been pushing the envelope a little too far, especially with a business trip kicking in later today. I won't see tonight's game, but I'm counting on Schilling to take care of business.
