The reason the day off is put between the first and second day of the season (or the first and second home game) is so that teams that play in cold-weather cities in early April can protect their season- or home-opener in case rain or snow postpones the regularly-scheduled date. The White Sox had that happen to them last week. Those in domed or southern stadiums don't have to worry about that too much. However, last year or the year before, the Seattle-Cleveland series was completely snowed out, and they had to struggle to get those three games made up.
If I could make the decisions, the first two weeks, all northern teams that do no have a dome would be opening and playing for the first 2 weeks or so on the road playing in domes and in stadiums in the southern states
