Selig, Selig Go Away

Posted: September 7, 2011 by Keith Stone in baseball, Bud Selig, MLB, rain, Yankees

Last night’s Yankees game started after 11PM because of the rain. Apparently, Bud Selig told the team around 5PM that the game was going to be played no matter what. It’s ridiculous. They’ve been hit hard by the rain this year. Instead of having four September off days like originally planned, they’re down to one. That’s a big deal for a team looking to make a run in the playoffs.

Push these games to the end of the season if they need to be played. You’re risking injury by playing in the rain and ending games at 2AM isn’t good for the fans and gets the players out of rhythm. Luckily, the Yanks won but you don’t want an important loss to occur because it’s passed Mariano Rivera’s bedtime. It seems like Selig and MLB never use common sense when it comes to anything whether it’s games taking five hours or banning videos on YouTube. Add this to the list.
