For the last 2 weeks, I've been counting down the days till Opening Day. I woke up today all geared to watch the Orioles, only to find that the game was postponed. I get that it's only a day until tomorrow, but it's still a let down.

The average temp in Boston in April is 56 degrees.    That’s not freezing cold.

Pssssssssht, that's golfing weather... my kid is super pissed. He has no concept of rainouts. 

Similarly, I have no concept of non-rain rainouts.

I dunno about anyone else here but when I see a game that's been postponed, there's like a 2 second period after where I'm like, "They mean delayed, right?  They're still gonna play today, right?  Doesn't postponed mean the same thing as...ah, wait, no it doesn't..."

Look on the bright side, with the Nats also cancelled, at least MASN executives get to skip one more day of paying the electric bill. They'll just turn the lights on tomorrow instead.

I just threw up in my mouth a little seeing Darren O’Day in Yankees pinstripes as he warmed up in their pen. 

Wut? I didn't know this and now I feel ill. I'll just think of it as O'Day is deep undercover and will sabotage the Yankees' season at a most opportune time.

MICHAEL KAY: ) Aaron Judge has never had a walk-off hit as a Yankee ...... he had a chance just now with runners on 1st and 2nd with 2 outs in the bottom of the 9th inning, and he struck out.

Meanwhile they are playing in the snow at Detroit and it looks cool. 

 

Why are we acting like someone's pulling something here?

I'm guessing the Red Sox want to be extra cautious with inclement weather given the reduced capacity (12%) at Fenway right now and the less-than-modern architecture (wouldn't be good PR to have everyone crowded together in the concourse)

    • I’m still expecting offensive improvement over the remainder of the season but I must admit that the offense is worse than I thought it would be.     Mullins is far exceeding expectations but no one else is and a lot of players are below expectations.  Getting Santander back will be helpful, if he can start hitting and Mountcastle returning to form would be a huge boost. Just gotta wonder if we see improvement from C, 3rd and 2nd and if/when Mullins declines, how far is the drop?
    • Well, like I said, someone can go to Bowie. Between Henderson, Ortiz or Westburg, we can have someone in AA.  You can argue that either or all of them could be there imo. But generally speaking, you are correct. To me, it’s more important for Henderson and Westburg to play as much at SS as they can.  We need to figure out if those guys can stay there.  You should have some very solid idea by the end of the year...and perhaps, they already know but just in case you they don’t, you should be using this year to be sure. You know guys like Ortiz and Servideo can play SS, at least from the info we have heard.  If they have to play second base or the OF some this year while you figure out Henderson and Westburg, so be it.
    • My mental image of the 1960s is that it was a lot of low scoring pitchers duels with a lot of little shortstops bunting and stealing bases.  But the stealing bases part is all wrong.  In 1966 the Orioles had the best offense in the league and stole 55 bases all year, caught 41 times. The only teams to steal 100 bases were the White Sox and A's, and both of them were within 0.02 runs of being the worst offenses in the AL. In '66 the average AL team stole four fewer bases than the average AL team in 2019. In 1964 the Orioles were 4th in the majors in steals, but Luis Aparicio was the only player on the team with more than four.  Luis led the AL in steals nine straight years, but those included totals of 21, 28, 29, 31, and 40.
    • Can’t really argue with any of these on their own merits, but you do then face the question of how you reallocate the playing time to account for these changes.   For example, Joey Ortiz is hitting .295/.404/.458 at Aberdeen.   Good, but not necessarily promotion material at this early stage.    So what do you do with his playing time if Henderson and Westburg are suddenly both in Aberdeen as well?     Adam Hall is off to a slow start there, but are you going to demote him when he already played a full, successful season at Delmarva in 2019?     These are tricky decisions.   I can’t disagree with the idea that you look at the players who are most likely to be successful major leaguers, and when they are ready to move up a level, you move them up regardless of who else that affects.   But, it does make things more complicated when you’ve got other decent prospects who are going to lose playing time if a promotion is made.   
    • “Single-A Delmarva infielder Gunnar Henderson was named Low-A East League Player of the Week after going 10-for-23 (.435) with four doubles, a home run, 13 RBIs and seven runs scored.” https://www.masnsports.com/school-of-roch/2021/05/diaz-going-on-injured-list-santander-completes-assignment.html
    • Because a lot of people don’t want to go out to “enjoy themselves” while wearing those stupid masks.  Once Hogan said no more masks, that was good enough. I went to the store yesterday and almost everyone was still wearing them.  If that’s how it’s going to be, that’s fine.  It’s your choice.  I am just glad I have the option to not wear them.  
    • “Bowie third baseman Patrick Dorrian was named Double-A Northeast Player of the Week. He was 7-for-21 with three doubles, three home runs - including a grand slam - 11 RBIs, seven walks and eight runs scored.” https://www.masnsports.com/school-of-roch/2021/05/diaz-going-on-injured-list-santander-completes-assignment.html
