Seattle MARINERS (2-1, 0-0 road) at Cleveland INDIANS (2-1, 0-0 home), 10:05a, MLB.tv; 4:05p, CW-11 KSTW/MLB.tv
Jeff Weaver (0-0) vs. CC Sabathia (1-0)
Felix Hernandez (1-0) vs. Brian Slocum (0-0)
Well, the first try of this game got snowed under. Let's hope they can get this one off so their schedule doesn't get too screwed up.
Does it seem like the Mariners haven't played a full game since Wednesday? It's true. I guess the bad thing is that although it doesn't show up in the record books, Horacio Ramirez won't be fresh for another few days, but more importantly for the Indians, Victor Martinez is on the disabled list. That's horribly unfortunate, but from the Mariners' point of view, he won't be driving in 30 runs for the series. The undisputed good thing would be that Adrian Beltre gets three errors vaporized from the books.
Anyway, long day coming up. Let's hope it's a good one.
[edit ~10:08a -- So I wake up to fire off this post really quickly, and I turn the television onto The Weather Channel, of all channels, and find out that the doubleheader's been postponed. Someday, someday, the Mariners might actually play their fourth game of the 2007 season.]
