Stat of the Day: On The Road Again

With Miller Park's retractable roof the Brewers have a relatively rare resource: A home park that guarantees weather will not be an issue, regardless of conditions outside. This week, baseball will be played in sub-freezing temperatures and possibly snow, but the roof and climate controls in Milwaukee assure ideal conditions.

Yet somehow Major League Baseball has, more often than not, failed to take full advantage of that guarantee. Since Opening Miller Park in 2001, the Brewers have started the season on the road in eight of the last eleven seasons.
