Short delay here as home plate umpire Dan Iassogna is hit in the mask by a Merrill Kelly wild pitch. Iassogna appears to be fine. Is it me, or does it seem like there has been a rash of those incidents this season?

The Cubs announced a game-time temperature of 44 degrees with the wind out of the north at 26 miles per hour. According to my weather app of choice, that translates to a real-feel temperature of 37 degrees. Expect a lot of first-pitch swinging today.

It will take a poke to get one out at Wrigley Field today. There's a cold north wind blowing in at a rapid rate, and put extra emphasis on the word "cold". Off on the horizon, the sea (Lake Michigan) looks very angry today. April baseball!

Baseball has handed out suspensions related the Royals-White Sox incident on Wednesday. Kansas City pitcher Brad Keller gets five games, or one start, for throwing at Tim Anderson. Chicago manager Rick Renteria also gets a game, and admittedly he was pretty heated during the scrum. But Anderson got a game, too, for "his conduct after the benches cleared." That conduct must have been verbal because there was nothing visual to merit Anderson's ejection, much less a suspension and the fine that goes with it. With no more concrete evidence that what we have -- ie, what was said that umpire Joe West found so disruptive -- I'm going to chalk this one up in the what-the-heck column.
