Frozen tundra

Recovering from a medical procedure today, so getting a nice opportunity to just veg on the couch on watch ball. Happy to see that snowflakes aren’t falling in Chicago, but it does look frigid. Hardly recognized Nick Swisher in his Chicago White Sox uniform and with such a well-groomed facial appearance.

Saw none of Sunday’s games, but spent much of the day reading about it, and just heard Curt Young tell Ray Fosse that he’s never seen an occasion where every player on the field was frozen. 

Don’t know how long MLB is going to continue to keep its head buried in the sand about how dangerous it is to have teams play in those conditions. We see it every year, and eventually, somebody is going to take a fastball in the face, because they can’t see it through the snow.

Anyway, keep that in mind when you see the lack of offensive numbers early. It’s brutal to hit in weather like that.
