Seattle MARINERS (2-1, 0-0 road) at Cleveland INDIANS (2-1, 0-0 home), 1:05p, FSNNW/MLB.tv; 20min later, FSNNW/MLB.tv
Jeff Weaver (0-0) vs. CC Sabathia (1-0)
Felix Hernandez (1-0) vs. Fausto Carmona (0-0)
Maybe the third time's a charm here. Maybe the third time they try to play a doubleheader, they might get the games played. At this point, I'm hoping for even just one of these games to be played.
I just looked over at the Weather Channel website, and during the game hours, it looks like the forecast is for "few snow showers." That could mean anything.
The best thing about all of this, though, is that the Mariners play a day game Tuesday in Boston. I've got more than a feeling that the Mariners will be completely spent if they actually play this doubleheader and then have to high-tail it to Boston and get themselves together to play in Boston's home opener. As for the rest of that series -- Beckett, Matsuzaka, and Wakefield, oh my!
I'm almost resigned to the possibility of this doubleheader not being played at all. Maybe that's all it'll take for it to actually be played.
