CONFIRMED: Angels @ Cleveland To Be Played In Milwaukee
Update 2: Here's the Cleveland Indians press release about the move. No word about whether tickets for the original series will be honored, but this would seem to have the same problems as the other solution, mitigated a bit by not having to play so far from home for the Indians. Nonetheless, I do have to wonder whether this will be considered their home opener (probably not, even though the Tribe will be the home team in this series), and just how many people will show up for the series. If I were retired, I might just think about going to Milwaukee for a game or two.
The Indians were one strike away from a victory with two out in the top of the 5th when it was called. of course Seattle had the bases loaded too and it was really a blizzard, so i can't fault any one for calling it, especially after almost 3 hours of delays. But just one last strike was needed to hang an "L" on a division rival.
it doubly sucked for the Tribe as in that game Victor Martinez got hurt and might go on the DL.
And if i were the Tribe, for marketing purposes, i'd certainly call their next Cleveland game "The Opener" since officially, they haven't had a home game yet.
it must have been another Brian (C?) that passed on the travel plans - i just got up.
