Here’s Joe Maddon in the early innings of the Rays-Tigers game in Detroit, where the snow fell, the wind blew and the temperatures barely cracked 40 at game time:
A least I think he was at the game. That could be him prepping to climb Mt. Rainer or something.
They really ought to consider playing the 1st month of the season at the spring training sites in Florida and Arizona.
Beats the hell out of snow, rain or opening series in Japan!
Joe Maddon = Awesome
Somehow, Maddon doesn’t look quite such a baseball genius with his Elmer Fudd hat and a nice shade of frozen red.
Why in the heck would he be get ready to climb Mr. Rainier? Whats Mrs. Rainier going to think of this?
Classic… snot bubble funny…
Aww, they fixed it…
Shoulda left the typo, IMO. Your comment was hilarious till he did that. Ruined a good one, Craig.
Craig forgot to write “and” in between “climb and “mount.” Rainer is obviously a French girl’s first name.
Reminds me of high school tryouts in the first week of February. There’s nothing quite like trying to hit the corner with a curve when you can’t feel your fingers.
Getting jammed left your fingers hurting for hours. Off the end of the bat…..days.
4-0 sure is beautiful!
Detroit will do him good. Maddon has been out in the sun so long he looks like an Oompa Loompa.
Cold weather or not, you know Maddon is still staying focused thanks to his Men’s One a Day 50+.
that’s a hit!
Opening games should be played in warm weather areas or start season later. Baseball is a warm weather sport and should be treated as as such. All we need is star pitcher to hurt his arm in cold weather.
Verlander was off today, no worries!
Grow a pair.
I don’t get this either. You have Miami playing in Philly, Tampa in Detroit, Atlanta started in New York.
Spring training is in the south/desert for a reason.
It was 86 in Jacksonville. Who the heck makes out these schedules
More fans would show up to a 40 degree game in Detroit than any in Tampa.
Nope, the story isn’t the 4-0 Tigers, it’s the bad weather in Detroit…..more crap coverage….because posting something…ANYTHING about Detroit negatively is easier and lazier than writing a real story…
The weather was OK in Detroit yesterday. Temperature was in the low forties with a light drizzle. We haven’t had any snow since February this year.
