Remember when that mega-rain-delayed World Series game was a big deal? That was only like a month ago, and at the time people were calling it things like the “biggest travesty in the history of sports.” Now, nobody really cares anymore. Which is why Bud Selig’s timing on announcing a new rule change to pseudo-clarify such things is so, well, Selig-ian.
We don’t have to worry about playoff games being shortened due to weather anymore, as Selig has declared that the rules will be revised to ensure that such games are played to their conclusion. Although, a couple of other details of Selig’s statement about the new rules are not quite crystal clear. We couldn’t possibly have this all make perfect sense, now, could we?
