So the Cleveland Indians finally got to play again Tuesday night, opening a three-game home set against the Los Angeles Angels in ... Milwaukee? That was actually a pretty good compromise to get the games in after a disastrous weekend in Cleveland. It was apparently going to be the Brewers' Miller Park or Minute Maid Park in Houston and the teams settled on Bud Selig's home.
Check out this time-lapse video of the snow on Opening Day at Jacobs Field. The Indians and Mariners were one strike away from getting Friday's game in before the Human Snow, er, Rain Delay stepped in (otherwise known as Mariners manager Mike Hargrove). The rest of the weekend, there wasn't much to do for the Mariners other than to roll around in the snow. That's ex-Bison player and coach Carlos Garcia joining the hijinks in that picture.
The Indians, by the way, must feel that catcher Victor Martinez's balky quad muscle will be OK and not force him to the disabled list because they sent catcher Mike Rose back to the Bisons after he joined the club in Cleveland over the weekend and made the trip to Milwaukee. Rose was never actually taken off the Buffalo roster or put on the Cleveland list because the Tribe had not played any games since Friday.
