90% of BBB GameThread pollers thought at least one game this week would be delayed by the weather. Turns out, they were right.

Randal Grichuk has been on social media a bit today, tweeting things that he shouldn’t have, but also posting stories are Instagram that are pretty great. If seeing Danny Jansen hammering out Heart and Soul on the piano is a desire of yours, you’re in luck!

We hate to see this:

Here are today’s lineups. Drury is in, Brito is out, and Sogard stays atop the lineup. Tepera won’t be activated for tonight’s game.
