Don't Fake Sickness For Sox Monday Opener Quite Yet

If you're thinking of blowing off work Monday to catch Red Sox Opening Day in Cleveland, think again. The forecast for The Mistake-By-The-Lake is living up to its nickname: 90% chance of rain, 46 frigid degrees and a nearly 20 MPH wind coming in off Lake Erie. And, as one of our Board members points out, Tuesday's forecast is even worse—32 degrees and windy. Still, it's a good thing the MLB schedulers kept The Carmine Hose away from Fenway on Monday—which will see 38 degrees and a mix of rain and snow. Can we please shorten the schedule to 154 games, start in mid-April, and end this stupidity?
