MLB puts the screwgee on the Astros/Red Sox exhibition game
Sure, it's an exhibition game that means absolutely nothing. But the people who show up, and I would bet that an exhibition game against the Red Sox in March will be better attended than a regular season game in September, would be spending real money. So when MLB decided to schedule regular season games throughout March 31, the Astros and Red Sox were forced to cancel the March 31 exhibition at Minute Maid, because they couldn't find a window around the regular season games.
