Back to work!

I hope everyone had a Happy Easter and now we are ready (kind of) to get back to work with a 9-game roadtrip that starts tonight in Clinton. However, and not surprisingly, Mother Nature may have a say in whether or not we play tonight. It is currently (3:45) raining and while the tarp is NOT on the field, Batting Practice has been canceled. We are looking at 100% chance of rain at 5 pm, 65% at 7pm and 30% after that. UGH. Feels like day number 90 in a row with rain or snow.  The wet conditions will also keep injured players Richard Jones and Rubi Silva from returning to the lineup tonight. I expect to see them both back in the lineup either tomorrow or Wednesday IF their legs hold up from running  today as they test the injuries.

We had a bit of a delayed ride over today as our regular buss driver Russ Stewart is seeing his son Nate off to the Middle East to serve our country and the fill-in was a tad bit late, but we are in Clinton and ready to go. We didn’t watch a movie on the way over as most of the guys slept. I got some work done and started a new book, a thriller, The Inner Circle by Brad Meltzer.

As you’ll see in the April25GameNotes, the Chiefs are 6-18 in this ballpark the last 3 years, hopefully we can turn that around tonight. We made a couple roster moves today as well.

Today’s lineup:
Szczur cf
LePage 2b
Rohan 1b
Borges rf
Gibbs c
Soto ss
Fitzgerald dh
Giansanti lf
Alcantara 3b
Simpson rhp…followed by Jokisch lhp

And as always listen live at 6:10 pm. Follow along on Twitter and Facebook.
