More Outrage

UPDATE: below
Suspending the game in the middle of the sixth inning after the Rays had tied was the worst of all choices. If the game never resumes, the Rays' run is erased and the Phillies win--the most tainted Series since the 1919 Black Sox.


The Washington Post says I'm wrong:
Baseball was also saved by a new rule, instituted in 2007, that changed the cut-off point for weather stoppages. Prior to 2007, a suspended game resumed at the point of the last fully concluded inning; in this case, the Rays' run in the top of the sixth would have been wiped out, since the inning was not played to completion.

Not here to defend Selig at all, but did he really have a choice??
