Just received this press release from MLB:-
10/10/2009 12:04 AM ET
Game Three of the National League Division Series between the Philadelphia Phillies and Colorado Rockies postponedGame Three of the 2009 National League Division Series between the Philadelphia Phillies and the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field in Colorado has been postponed due to inclement weather, and has been rescheduled for Sunday at 8:07 p.m. (MT). Game Four has been moved to Monday.
Those fans with tickets for Game Three will now be able to use them only for Sunday’s game at 8:07 p.m. (MT). Those fans with tickets for Game Four will be able to use them for Monday’s game. The game time for Monday’s game will be announced prior to the start of Sunday’s Game Three. Game Five, if necessary, will still be played on Tuesday at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia.
Not only does it cause severe discomfort to fans, but it impairs the quality of baseball. Tail wags the dog, weather completely takes over the game. Ridiculous.
One more reason to shorten the season or move the playoffs to a warmer, neutral site location - as Peter Gammons has been talking about for years now.
Okay, forget the neutral sites - SHORTEN THE DAMN SEASON.
