It's been a tough weather week for the Indians and their fans. Alas, brighter days are ahead! With games in Tampa Bay's dome and a much nicer forecast next weekend back in town, the Tribe might actually get a little rhythm going!
Tribe, White Sox POSTPONED
The teams will play a traditional double header in Chicago on May 23.
Consider the first seven days of the Indians' regular-season slate.
Monday: Postponed because of snow flurries, bone-chilling temperatures
Tuesday: 34 degrees at first pitch, the coldest season opener in franchise history
Wednesday: Rain showers pushed back first pitch by 12 minutes
Thursday: Postponed because of rain
Friday: 39 degrees at first pitch, with strong winds and intermittent snow flurries
Saturday: 32 degrees at first pitch and windy
Sunday: Postponed because of rain showers
The Indians want Chiz to get enough at-bats during his rehab stint, but that awesome Midwest weather pops up again to affect the Tribe.
The famous cash considerations is coming over from the Los Angeles Dodgers in exchange for outfielders Zach Walters and James Ramsey. The Tribe had 40-man roster issues and these semi-young guys were obviously very expendable. It's a shame they didn't work out here for the Indians, but I still think Walters has enough potential to be worth the lottery ticket.
Around the League
- Trevor Story has hit 7 home runs already. Wow.
- The weather also meant we had minor league baseball game this week with a whooping 0 fans in attendance.
- Enjoy this over-the-shoulder snag by the amazing Bartolo Colon.
- No Progressive Field in this MLB Stadium tournament. I voted PNC Park because it's amazing.
