snowed out?

Look, I went along with the ridiculous idea to set the calendars forward a month as part of the "new and improved daylight savings time", because it meant one less month of offseason, but I think we can all agree now that it was a bad idea. As a result, the Astros game at Chicago was snowed out yesterday, no doubt throwing off everyone's calculations for when Craig Biggio will reach plunk 288. (Though I'm sure some of the more elaborate models figured in the weather).

The Astros are off today, and they'll travel to Philadelphia for the weekend, where they'll try to play 3 games at another park without a dome. So, it looks like Ryan Bowen will remain the only pitcher who has plunked Biggio on April 12th. He did it in 1994 for the Marlins.
