The weather is going to play havoc this weekend in New York & Philadelphia. Looks like the postseason is going to get off to a late start. I believe the Cubs vs. Mets finale should have been moved up to an afternoon game to try to avoid what could be a mess tonight. Mike & Mike from ESPN were talking about this today, should these games be moved to a domed stadium? I think they should because it's just going to delay everything if they don't.

It's a nine-month long season...what's a few more days? Play the games where they should be played so that the fans that purchased tickets can enjoy their teams.
I'm sorry if this is inconvenient to the freeloading sports media (I used to be one).

When you regularly go to games in a dome, it's easy to say that other games should move to a dome. I wouldn't want to have to tell thousands of Mets fans that, as their team moves to the brink of the postseason, they'll all get refunds or the opportunity to travel a few hundred miles to watch their team's pivotal games.

Looks like postseason may not start on time. Doubleheaders on Monday, another make-up game on Tuesday & if-necessary the Cubs & Mets make-up Wednesday with potential 1-game playoff Thursday.
ummm... who's playing a doubleheader on Monday? Why don't we wait and see IF the weatherman is even correct!

Yeah, the weather may play havoc with everything from DC up into Boston. Should be an interesting weekend.

So far it's dry in NY for the Cubs/Mets game tonight
Dunno what game you watched, but I saw several innings of rain soaked baseball.
:D
I know, I saw what time you posted.
Just couldn't resist posting a reply to ya.

Delays will probably be made up by eliminating travel days until they get caught up. Hard on the teams, but such is life.

Okay, so far I have been wrong about the weather. We've been getting the games in. And even if it rains in Philly tomorrow it won't matter because they won the NL East. Looks like it will come down to Mets & Brewers for Wild Card. If it rains during the day in New York, they can always wait until evening to play.

So... since all games were played it looks like the smart decision was made by MLB.

Go Phillies !

Looks like I was wrong. I'm glad I was wrong. And the Mets choked again. I was @ a bar in the Twin Cities watching football & baseball. The Packer fans stayed to watch the Brewers win & Mets lose. They cheered louder for the Brewers & Marlins than they did for the Pack. Just like the Minnesota fans like me, bad day for football but good day for baseball.

Man you guys are still waiting to see if you have to have a one game playoff! I'd rather see the Twins be in, since Ozzie is just irritating !

because baseball is totally stupid:

1. they have a dh in 1 league but not in the other.
2. they let a game that doesnt even count determine world series home field.
3. they let 1 team have a payroll of $210,000,000 while another has only $30,000,000.

its like my little sister could run it better.

I guess you don't pay any attention to the NHL.:rolleyes: Worst marketed league in the world. Or the NFL that just has every team be mediocre with a stupid salary cap rule.
