      Since when does a frowny face constitute a rant?

    An ominous start to another wash-out season for my favorite team.

      It’s a good decision. Better weather predicted for tomorrow. Colder but no rain.

    Meanwhile I’m watching them play in a snowstorm in Detroit. I remember being at an opener in Baltimore that was delayed by snow. No way they should be playing in Detroit in those conditions. A slick baseball coming at you in the mid 90’s with poor visibility? C’mon umps, do your job and call it until it stops snowing for God’s sake.
