Best thing that could happen to this club right now. Maybe Renteria will have a revelation and drop Moncada down in the order - say #7 or #8 - to take some pressure off and help him figure things out at the plate on the big league level.

I'll be shocked if they play tomorrow. Snow will continue in the morning with more snow showers expected in the afternoon and a high of 29. They should just save everyone the headache and cancel it now.

They really should just cancel tomorrow's game today & let the team come home today, they are going to lose at least 2 future days off because of this, so let them spend tonight & tomorrow with their families.

I'm a little surprised MLB didn't intervene and move this series elsewhere, not that the weather is any good in Chicago right now, either. It would be borderline as far as getting games in at our park this weekend.

The Brewers are on the road this weekend. Maybe they could have played at Miller Park.

I know, I know, it's tough to get stadium personnel lined up to work the games, etc.

Seems really dumb of Minnesota to build a brand new stadium and not put a retractable roof on it ala Milwaukee.

I'm sure it's quite complicated financially but they didn't seem to have problems getting all the bells and whistles for the new football stadium.

I suspect cancellations will be the norm for years to come in minnesota considering how early the season starts.

Actually this is a freak occurrence. This is a potentially record setting storm for this time of year I would assume. On average Minnesota gets 2 days and 2.5" of snow total in April.

With that much snow, getting a flight out may be a problem. I know I would rather just stay an extra few days in a nice hotel than hang around an airport and wait for a flight that may not even be able to leave.

Would the Twins scream bloody murder if that happened? They consider themselves a contender.

I think these postponements hurt the Twins and help the White Sox.

As we all know, the Sox are playing very poorly in all facets right now. Whenever these postponed games are made up, the Sox almost certainly will be playing better at that time, because they could hardly do much worse than the current state of affairs.

Even if the games had been moved to Chicago with the Twins serving as the home team, I would like Minnesota's chances of earning a series win.

Some have suggested that this weekend being snowed out is a positive for the Sox because it will provide them a "mental break." Whether that yields better results when the team gets to Oakland, I'm not sure, but I also don't think these days off can hurt.

It's only the middle of April and the Sox return to Minnesota two times this season. No need to move the games to another location.

We just happen to have a worse than usual crappy spring. Just got to live with it. My first two soccer games have been cancelled. We might be playing until the 4th of July by this rate.

I was a bit young in 1982, but I remember hearing we had a freak blizzard that affected the entire midwest and east coast. The Sox season didn't start until Sunday afternoon with a DH against the Yankees. I'm sure Lip can confirm this.

We haven't had such storm in April in Chicago since. That was a rare occurrence. So is this storm. It sucks, but what can you do. We've had a lot of unusual weather the last few years.
