Why even bother starting the game right now?It's going to be the wrath of God in less than 30 minutes and that means both starters will be out of the game by the 2nd or 3rd inning.

Alright, here's my first report from the Strat-o-matic game:

 

Top of the 1st 

 

Springer grounds out (5-3).

Bregman strikes out looking.

Altuve strikes out looking.

It is once the game starts.

 

Before it starts, it's the home team's decision.

Nice selfie.


Quite frankly, I'm downright impressed with that selfie given the circumstances.

We're talking about a guy who's used to 68 degree temps in February. Instead, he's braving the elements in Wabasha, MN... -10 and a wind chill of -35. For what? Going ice fishing?

It's great that Dozier hits the HR.... but I really don't think the team has room on the roster.... I wa not him to be trade bait at this point...
