Global warming...except in Cleveland

Try telling the baseball fans in Cleveland that they are suffering from global warming:

After having today's home doubleheader against Seattle postponed, he weather-beaten Indians are packing their bags for a trip to Milwaukee tonight to prepare for a three-game series against the Los Angeles Angels in the Brewers' Miller Park, which has a retractable dome roof.

Major League Baseball decided to move the Indians-Angels series - scheduled for Tuesday through Thursday at Jacobs Field - to Milwaukee because in Cleveland, temperatures in the high 40s are forecast, along with rain Thursday. Unofficially, the games in Milwaukee will be at 7:05 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday and 1:05 p.m. on Thursday.

Tuesday's starter for Cleveland will be Rick Vaughn.

Update #1
For $10 a ticket, my butt would have been in a seat for all three games if not for the fact that I am flying out of town at the butt crack of dawn on Wednesday morning.

Update #2
The Indians were originally going to have Rick Vaughn Glasses Night for their Tuesday game. Despite the fact that it still shows up on the schedule, they will not be handing out Rick Vaughn glasses at Miller Park.
