Oh, What’s The Big Deal?!?
There are the endless stories and apologies and hand wringing and questioning and wondering and criticism of the way Commissioner Bud Selig and Major League Baseball handled the whole rain out/cancellation/suspension and it’s enough. They did the right thing and Selig’s acting like someone who’s about to have a Pete Rozelle-Al Davis-style blood feud with someone (the media, the fans, the owners); what’s the problem? So they’ll finish the game tonight, as they should. They got a faulty weather forecast on Monday, tried to get the game in and made the smart decision to suspend it. No matter how the decision was reached and whether or not there was confusion here and there is irrelevant; the bottom line is that they did the right thing and there won’t be any righteous indignation as to what baseball did wrong for once. Give the guy a break.
