I'm Dreaming Of A White Opener

Well, if you can't play tomorrow, guys, I don't know either how you're going to make these games up. But maybe, just maybe, if you weren't spending two weeks playing the Florida Marlins and the Cincinnati Reds, there might be more room to schedule games with teams that are actually in your own league.

Bud Selig's infatuation with interleague play will keep creating messes like this again and again. Sure, the season starts when there is still a good chance of bad weather, but even when the season started in mid-April there were still weather issues. Cramming in eighteen games per year with teams not even competing for the same pennant makes it harder than ever to make up games lost early on. The Mariners only make one scheduled trip into Cleveland this year; this was it, folks. The Offensive Stereotypes and the Mariners will play again this year...in Seattle, on September 25, 26, and 27. Want to make them up then, in the wrong city and at the end of a pennant race?

Mondays forecast for Cleveland is here. Looks like the snow may stop by game time, leaving the teams to play a doubleheader on a wet field in 35 degree weather. What fun.

This just in. What a mess. It just gets better and better for Cleveland fan.
