Bud Selig is the ANTICHRIST!
Take this with a grain of salt - it's more a simple reflection of the state I'm in than an objective look at the game.
Bud Selig is the devil.
After watching his press conference tonight, after suspending the Phillies game, I have one simple question:
How could you send the Phillies out for the top of the 6th inning? Why not simply call it after the fifth? Your press conference was a farce, between looking like an old man scanning the yard for those darn kids, and throwing blame around everywhere, including the grounds crew and umpires.
No - I'm not asking for them to call the game and declare the Phils the champs. I understand the absurdity of deciding a game for the world championship within 5 innings. But the way I understand it, they could have simply suspended the game after 5 innings (giving both teams the same number of at bats at that time) and resumed later (tomorrow) with a score of 2-1.
Instead, Selig and whoever else, decided it was a good idea to send the Phillies out there for the top of the 6th, in a storm that few people other than Clooney and Mark Wahlberg have ever seen. How is that fair for the Phillies?
Again - I'm not asking for a Phillies win...I'm just asking for fairness. Is that such a terrible thing?
It's absurd. It's a horrendous call. And here's Bud Selig, stuck in the middle of another controversy, that hurts baseball more. Thanks Bud. Thanks for fucking up again.
