I decided not to go to Camden Yards today for two reasons:
1) Last night, the Orioles played an 11-inning game that lasted four hours and 13 minutes. They also waited out a one-hour and 37-minute rain delay. Let’s do the math…four-thirteen…one-thirty-seven…five hours and 50 minutes! That means the game didn’t end until 12:55am. And THAT means the managers might cancel batting practice in order to give their players a little extra sleep. (Do the O’s and Rangers really need BP after combining for 19 runs and 33 hits?)
2) Weather.com said there’s a 30% chance of thunderstorms.
I’m getting tired of writing about all the games I’m not going to, and you’re probably getting tired of reading about it, but this is my life during baseball season. It’s a constant struggle to find free time that overlaps with favorable conditions.
At least it’s only 18 days until I leave for Cincinnati–and 20 days until Houston.
