We’ll have to wait one more day for baseball

MLB: Milwaukee Brewers-Workouts Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports

After waiting all winter for the new-look Brewers to take the field for the first time, we’ll have to wait at least one more day.

With heavy rains and flash flooding watches in the forecast, the Brewers’ Cactus League opener against the Texas Rangers is being rained out.

It’s a bit of bad luck, since by all reports the weather in Arizona has been near-perfect since players repored to camp.

Josh Lindblom, Eric Lauer and Adrian Houser were among the pitchers scheduled to get their first game action of the year today. They’ll be bumped back an extra day as a result, assuming the Brewers stick to what they told reporters yesterday was their contingency plan.

Since most of the Cactus League figures to be washed out today, the rainout shouldn’t affect the Brewers’ chances at reclaiming the Prestigious Cactus Cup too much.
