Nice to pitch well with that offense behind you.

Verlander is good. Especially for someone who is 35 years old.

If you were getting what he's getting you'd have a little pep in your step too.

I think it's more likely the new has wore off, and hes not tired anymore. Hence, his return to prominence.

That's true, of course, for those of us not making 28 million dollars a year.

Many baseball games have been canceled this season due to weather and poor field conditions — just look at the two Chicago teams.

Three of the White Sox’ four games at Target Field against the Twins this past weekend were cancelled due to a snow storm drilling Minnesota.

And the Cubs in Chicago haven’t been any luckier.

Monday’s Cubs game at Wrigley Field against the Cardinals was postponed making it the Cubs’ fourth game that has been postponed this season and third home game that has been rescheduled due to poor field conditions and weather in the last eight days.

The Blue Jays trolled teams on Twitter about having to postpone games due to weather.

The Blue Jays official Twitter account tweeted Monday morning: “Weather update: Due to our stadium having a roof, today’s game will be … played as expected.”

Well fast forward and that tweet did not age well.

A few hours after the Blue Jays posted that original tweet, ice fell from CN Tower onto Rogers Centre’ roof, according to a Toronto TV station. Crews were unable to access the damage earlier this morning as more ice could fall, the report said.

The Blue Jays have since deleted their original tweet and shared a new tweet saying that they’re working with CN Tower and Toronto Police to assess the field conditions.

The roof is being repaired and a decision on the game will be made around 2:20 p.m.

Talk about karma.
.


The game has been postponed.

So Bryce Harper hit a ball with a broken bat 406 feet.

I just watched the video and I don't understand how that's physically possible. I've seen broken bat homers before, but it's usually a situation where the bat chips or stays mostly together with a small piece coming off. In Harper's case, the whole bat broke off a couple inches above his hands and it hit the netting behind the bat boy. It just doesn't seem possible that he could generate enough power when the bat breaks that badly.

Bryce Harper is pretty good.
