Now we go to post-game, where Selig basically says that the rules according to this series and game were made up on the spot by him. Joe Maddon toed the company line, but didn't have an answer when asked if he thought his team could lose the WS in a shortened game. While I think the most fair option was chosen, the World Series is coming down to a 3.5 inning sprint. Does Major League Baseball really need Bud Selig flying by the seat of his pants, making decisions and not keeping the participants abreast of the ongoings? He already ruined that All Star Game a few years ago and now he's behind the first suspended game in World Series history, a deciding game in fact.
I think it's time that the owners step in and replace Selig. No matter how much of an 'owner' guy he is...tonight was just another embarrassment in the tenure of Selig. The money that Selig may be saving the owners will be gone when he finally kills the sport to the point of irrelevancy.
