This is ridiculous. With the billions of dollars running through the veins of major league baseball, no games should ever be called for rain. Get a roof, or some plastic sheeting, or pay some hobos to build a cover out of furniture sale signs or something, but enough with rain delays. This is 2011, not 1925.
Not having the game on yesterday was semi-convenient, because it did allow me to watch the Sounders and Timbers battle their way into a draw, but my whole day today was planned around baseball today, and the weather in Cleveland has taken that away from me. And it doesn’t look like the Indians have another series here this season, so any makeup games will likely occur there. So not only has the rain in the midwest caused me to miss two games on TV, it will also rob me of being able to see a double header here in Seattle.
Tomorrow night, at least we know that a game will be played rain or shine. Preferably shine at some point soon, because I’m getting far too sick of this weather. Good for my yard, not great for being able to do anything outside the house. Excited to see how the Ms do on two days of rest, glad to be going to a game this week, and it looks like it’s going to be nice weather for it. Looks like Wednesday is also a Doug Fister start, and I’ve been wanting to get some photos of him warming up, so that day should be especially fun.
