Cinco De Raino

| | Comments (0)

Ah well.

My thoughts are basic. It never should have come to the 6th inning. The game should have been suspended in the 4th. Those were ridiculous playing conditions and I even turned to the guy next to me at the top of the 6th and said, "They won't call a rain delay with the Phillies up 2-1, they are hoping for the Rays to score."

Sure enough, that's exactly what happened.

In case you don't know, here's how it pans out:

The game is in the bottom of the 6th with Hamels (presumably it will be a pinch hitter), Rollins and Werth due up, with none out. The day it should begin is Tuesday at 8pm, weather permitting. My educated guess says that it won't be Tuesday, but really Wednesday, since it looks like crap weather all day tomorrow in Philly.

That will push out the final two games (if necessary) for Thursday & Friday in Tampa. I doubt MLB will give the Rays and Phillies an extra day of rest. It just doesn't seem very fair, actually, especially for the Rays who finished an exhausting 7 game series vs Boston and get more time to rest up.

Bottom line is the game is tied at 2, with a slight advantage to the Phillies, because they will have a night's worth of rest to bat for 4 innings, whereas the Rays get 3 innings to score. It's bullpen vs bullpen.

Time for bed, here. I barely had a sip of beer tonight I was so nervous. Glad now that I didn't drink very much.
