    I'm happy too. Especially because the Mariners have already equalled last year's win total against the A's: Two.

    I haven't been up to Jacob's Field for a couple of years. I've got to make the trip this year as the Indidans aren't looking too bad.
    We have a AAA team here in Columbus that has been a member of the Yankees farm system for years. The Yankees dropped us last year and now we're affiliated with the Washington Nationals. It used to be fun when the Yankees would some someone down for rehab. I don't think it will be quite as entertaining anymore.

    Tell me everyone: was Dice-K's MLB debut as major in the rest of the country as it was here in Boston?

    Boy was Eric Wedge the Cleveland manager pissed when the M's/Indians game got called one pitch short of being an official game. Given that it was a fricking blizzard most of the game, I'm not sure how they got even that much of a game in.

    I've never heard of an entire four game series being wiped out or MLB moving a series to a "neutral" site before:

    ESPN.com - MLB - One series snowed out so next Tribe series moved

    I think that was a huge debacle in umpiring. I think that Hargrove did have a valid argument to make that the batter could not see the ball, and could not hit a ball he couldn't see. However, if the conditions warranted calling the game because of that, then the umpire should have called it several pitches before that -- when the conditons were that bad. Nothing changed between the last pitch called and the moment the game was called.

    All that said, the way they schedule baseball in Cleveland is a joke. Several years ago, after some horrible home opener weather, it was decided that Cleveland would not open the season at home - they'd always open on the road so that they had more time for good weather to come along before the home opener. Ever since that decision was made, we have BEAUTIFUL weather the week that baseball opens, and it gets cold and ugly the week that they open at home. Granted, it's usually not the second heaviest snowfall of the season - but it just proves that you can't negotiate with nor predict mother nature in Cleveland in April!

    I seem to recall that the "northern" teams used to start on the road at "southern" teams. This year Detroit started at home with 3 games over 4 days. One was postponed until September!!! Now they are on a 10 day road trip. Why not start with the 10 day road trip and then come home?

    For Real!!
    The snow here was PITIFUL!! They ended up donating all that unused food to the Cleveland local foodbanks....I can't believe as many people went as they did! Someone in our office was giving away 4 free tickets to the game that was supposed to be on Easter...no takers...No kidding!! And more snow tonight....aka: "the poor man's fertilizer"!!
    I LOVE BASEBALL....but not in April on the North Coast!!
    I sure hope I get to take my Dad (84) to see the Indians play again this year! I like that they have wheelchairs near the entrances. Dads need to go to watch ball live and in person.
    I also aim to hit me up some games at Camden Yards this year as well! That is such a beautiful park! ....and I still love me some Cal Ripken...yes....even still!! (Cal is HOT!) I'm glad I got to see him play there during his last season. My daughter's father-in-law has SWEET seats!!...for the Orioles I mean!! Jeez!!!
