More bad weather yet again!
Are we ever going to see this series being played!
We are supposed to have spring, not winter!
The Guardians (4-5), and the Chicago White Sox (6-3) have weathered the storm for two straight nights. Now, we are going to have a double-header instead unless baseball can’t be played again for the third straight day. At this point in time, who really knows the situation?
In essence, Dallas Kuechel against Shane Bieber for roughly around a 2:10 pm start for game one. For the second matchup at 5:40 pm, Jimmy Lambert will take the hill against Triston McKenzie, who are both looking for their first major league win of the season (0-1). McKenzie has struck out seven batters thus far into the regular season of play.
McKenzie likes to mix his fastball with his slider, so I expect that the visiting White Sox are going to see tons of fastball counts when their hitters are ahead at the dish. Meanwhile, Triston has a 2.57 ERA, while Jimmy’s ERA is at 6.00. In sequence, you’re going to see some extra innings of baseball, which means long hours, nine innings, pitch counts being dragged out, bullpens being taxed out and runs being scored at will.
I just want to be entertained like all Cleveland fans.
The other theory is the ghost-running rule could result in one of these games being over, if not both. Moreover, the field still had a cold chill and was frozen from the snow. Spring doesn’t even feel like a season. Hey, we might just move on to summer because we are already experiencing winter all over again.
You get to see the star power talent of Jose Ramirez and Tim Anderson. Over 20 plus baseball innings in a span of two days. Hopefully, we don’t have to wait too much longer for this series to finally be played as the series will be decided in a three-game set. Yes, you want to win your first game at home, but winning this series has just gotten a whole lot more important.
Can the Guardians get off on a high note and send the fans home with two much-needed victories? Or, will the White Sox continue to march on in the standings and make Cleveland an afterthought?
