Westbrook/Hafner updates

Jake Westbrook will have arthroscopic surgery on his right hip in Nashville today. More info on the site tonight.

Travis Hafner is expected to play DH in the Minors today and tomorrow. He is playing in Double-A Akron’s playoff game against Bowie at 7:05 p.m. ET tonight.



This is completely off topic, but do you know why the Orioles aren’t playing on Sunday? I saw they had a double-header on Sat, but I assumed it was a make up game. I’ve never seen a Sunday off-day.

I am thinking it might be a contractual thing with the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens play at home on Sunday. Maybe they aren’t allowed to play at home when the Ravens are at home. Maybe just because it is the opener. I don’t know. Just a guess.

The game was on the schedule for Sunday but a couple weeks ago they decided not to go head-to-head with their neighbors the Ravens. Thus, they moved the game from Sunday to Saturday afternoon, part of a separate admission D/N DH. As a result, the A’s could be playing 5 games in 3 days. I guess the NFL was not worried about the situation, since they set their schedule after the baseball season was underway.

The Padres used to have Sunday off-days when they played in the same stadium as the Chargers.

What they said.

Interesting. Thank you for the responses. I understand about the Padres/Chargers but the Ravens don’t play in Camden Yards. Quite odd. They can’t be worried about ticket sales – no one is going to see the Orioles anyways. I expect Camden to look like Dolphin Stadium the other day.

Orioles and Ravens share parking lots.

Hurricane Hannah may have other ideas. Sat DH may turn into a Sunday DH.
