It is a beautiful -1 C in Minneapolis this morning. Let's play two. Honestly, I think that temperatures below freezing should make for automatic postponement.

Gibby is to be on SiriusXM radio MLB channel at 12:30 Eastern on Thursdays, but I'm doubting he'll be on today since the game starts half an hour later but I'm going to listen in, just in case.

So we start the day with a little bit of bad news:

Also, they are moving Jose Reyes' come back day til Saturday, saying that Cleveland is going to be cold on Friday, they'd rather not have him get too cold and tight on his first day back. And they are going to wait another day to decide if Adam Lind should go on the DL.I'm not hopeful.

Anthony Gose will be activated for the second game and will likely be playing CF.

Remember we have rules around here. Some reminders, don't talk about illegal streams,don't argue the rules, don't piss off the mods and don't be terrible. Also no Gifs or pictures until the game ends.
