The World Series

Boy, was last night a mess or what?

I’ve given Bud Selig a lot of grief over the years, and I think it would probably be in the best interests of baseball to turn the page on that, but I want to go on record as saying he most certainly did the right thing here. I just don’t think you can end the World Series and crown the World Champion in fewer than 9 innings. I think that’s something that would be very bad for baseball, in the short and long terms. I think the problem was that they wanted to wait until the game was tied, rather than risk a nightmare scenario in which the game is postponed with Philly ahead, and Tampa Bay then comes back to win the Series. It was an impossible situation to be in, and I think Selig ultimately made the decision in the best interest of baseball.

Sorry Philly fans.
