So who were the geniuses who scheduled a Yankee opener on the second day of April?

 OPENING DAY!

OPENING DAY!

Yankee game postponed after a half-foot of snow blankets the stadium.

If MLB owners really felt it necessary to start the season in March, instead of mid-April, you'd think they'd at least have the common sense to schedule the first three weeks' games on the west coast or southern climes, but no, television contract commitments to local markets lead them into this inanity.
