Isn't this an El Nino year or something. IDK but the weather has been weird for months, in New York its was 70 degrees for 2 days in early January. I think the schedule should have more opening days in the south (have home openers for northern teams a week later) and give the weather 1 extra week to get warm. I also think that this underscores the need of certain teams to have retractable roofed stadiums. I know that the twins new stadium will be an open air stadium because they couldn't afford a retractable roof and there is already a history of opening days being canceled because of weather in their stadium before they moved to the dome. Even certain warm weather teams need domes because of storms. This brings to mind when the Yankees were playing the D-rays a couple of years ago during a tight AL East race (not for the drays) and there were questions about whether games that were rained out would be made up (I believe some had to be moved to new york). And lets not remember the problems cold weather causes come late october and november in northern cities, since 1996 every world series (except 2002) has involved at least one team that plays in a cold weather city without a dome or retractable roof.
