The Red Sox and Rays are playing two games today thanks to an exception in the rules created in the 1990s regarding ballparks with smaller capacities. Namely, the ballparks of the Red Sox and Cubs. Whether it still applies today or not is besides the point, as it's a debate for another day: the Red Sox had the choice to play two, and used it to schedule just that.
The Tampa Bay Times decided to whine about it editorially on their front page (hat tip, Ryan Hannable):
You know, because the Rays, who are always seeking an advantage (as they should -- this is a competitive sport) wouldn't have made the Red Sox play two games were they unenthusiastic about it due to an injury-plagued roster. The Rays would have allowed the Red Sox to play just one as wished, and would have even submitted a Sox-friendly lineup just to make things easier for their opponents, probably.
If only whomever is responsible for that cover paid attention to what Rays' manager Joe Maddon was quoted as saying within the story itself:
You don't cry about it, you don't make excuses about it, you just go play.
Probably too busy writing that zinger to read the actual post, though.
