Opening Snow Day

It's rare that it snows the first day of summer, but that's what they're calling for today.

Hope springs eternal is the MO for most teams. Here's an interesting piece of information from an article by Jayson Stark at ESPN:

"...over the last nine years, eight different teams have won a World Series, 14 different teams have played in one, and 23 of the 30 teams in baseball have played at least one postseason game."


So, unless you are the Pirates or Padres, you may be in it come October. Of course, you'll have to play the Cardinals, meaning your suffering shall be legendary.

I definitely feel a return to the post-season is likely. It's been 3 years. It's about time.

Cleveland did the "Snowpening Day" thing in 2007. I don't want to see that again! It is snowing out my window as I write, but the Tribe opens in TX. We have a few days to get rid of it.

Hey! The Cards will be in Cleveland this summer. I wonder if Rick and I could sneak off without the kids and head to a game :-)

For the first time ever, I'm actually glad I'm not going to be there opening day.

Why not take the kids with you?
