On Mike and Mike in the Morning today on ESPN Radio, Mark Shapiro was on and they talked to him about the mess of the last few days.
There's a link to the PodCast on ESPN's Tribe page:
He mentions that the main problem with the scheduling is not that they scheduled April games in Cleveland, but that the games should have been against division rivals that would return later in the season, not two west coast teams making their only visit.
He also mentions why they chose Milwaukee, and specicially notes that the Flight was not desirble going all the way to/from California and that they did not want to play in front of the Angels' fans that at least Milwaukee would be Neutral.
He also touched on the competitive disadvantage they'll face later in the season as a result and that he's been getting ready for the draft.
