Weather in Philadelphia was miserable last night. Watching game five of the World Series, I can’t imagine why they even tried to play it.
As a consequence, if there is a game six, it will be played in Tampa Bay on Thursday.
I have a better idea.
Treat the suspended game as a suspended game. The teams will get back to it, if it’s necessary.
Instead, just go straight to game six on Thursday in Tampa.
If the Phillies take game six, they’ve won the World Series.
If Tampa takes game six, and then they take game seven, the series is knotted up at 3 games each.
Come back to Philadelphia on Sunday or Monday for the resumption of game five. Call it “game eight” if you like.
Tell me that wouldn’t be a damned exciting baseball game. 🙂
