Playoff Baseball

Prog Wrote:Maddon is saying he knew. So, maybe some sort of grand psychology to motivate his players.

Whatever the truth, both teams' management is backing Selig.

Not playing was absolutely the right thing to do, and no world series game, deciding or non-deciding, should be decided in less than 9 innings, but the timing of the stoppage is what is in question. Apparently everyone in the area except Selig knew the weather that was expected. The game should have A) not been started B) been stopped a few innings earlier than it was. It was too convenient to stop with the tie score and the weather being solely responsible for the tying run.

Management may have (willingly or unwillingly) sided with Selig, but the Phillies players and coaches were so pissed that every single one of them refused to do their press conferences afterward so there wouldn't be any disciplinary actions against them for what they would say about that slug.
