Shawn Green - Rosh Hashanah?

Postby EricF » Tue Sep 14, 2004 3:56 pm

We all know Shawn probably won't play on Yom Kippur - supposed to be coming around Sept 24-25. But will he play on Rosh Hashanah, another of the High Holy Days? It's supposed to begin sundown Sept. 15 and end at nightfall Sept. 17. Games would straddle sundown and nightfall. How would he handle that? Wednesday and Thursday night's games are against the Padres at home, and Friday night's game is at Colorado. I'd sure like to have him in if he's playing, but if he's not, with the West Coast starts, I may have a roster spot with nobody playing in it if I leave him in.

Interesting question Eric. Like everyone else so far, I don't know either, but If I see something, I'll let you know. :-)

My guess is he'll play on Rosh Hashanah. My understanding is that the contract he negotiated allows him to sit out games on Yom Kippur, but I haven't heard anything about Rosh Hashanah. Even though both are high holy days, Yom Kippur is the day of atonement, and is meant to be spent (in part) reflecting upon your actions of the past year, making up with people that you've had disagreements with, and in general atoning for stuff. As a fellow M.O.T. (member of the tribe, for the uninitiated), I can vouch for the fact that it's much easier to accommodate going to work on Rosh Hashanah than it is on Yom Kippur.

8-o Very interesting. I actually had judism in one of my religion classes when I was still in school. I actually passed the test too. How? My teacher wasn't exactly the best at giving tests....He would think of the questions and answer them in the next! :-b

Although I am not Jewish that was always my idea, that it was much more important not to work on Yom Kippur than Rosh Hashanah
