Joe Girardi will not complaint about playing 18 of 20 games on the road to accommodate Pope Benedict XVI's Mass on Sunday at Yankee Stadium.
“You'd like to be home a little bit more, but who's going to argue with the pope? No, not me. You're going to have to play 81 games on the road. And if you're going to play a lot of games on the road, to me the month to do it is early, when you're fresh and it's not real hot.”
MLB Senior Vice President Katy Feeney said changes had to be made by Major League Baseball to accommodate Benedict's Masses at Nationals Park in Washington today and at Yankee Stadium on Sunday.
