7954a714776c2d99594d850b45799325-getty.jpgGame 5 of the World Series has been suspended by rain and will be picked up in the sixth inning later today … or Wednesday.

The weather is supposed to be worse in Philadelphia today and MLB has not announced a start time. It could be sometime in the evening. The teams will pick up in the bottom of the sixth inning with the Phillies hitting.

What choice does MLB have?

Logistically, it’s a circus for all involved. The Rays had checked out of their hotel today, knowing they would be going home one way or another. Their Philly hotel was sold out, so the entire travel party had to head to Delaware. If the Rays win Game 5, everybody will make their way to St. Petersburg.

Meanwhile, Fox finds itself in the position of televising a “game” that could last two and a half innings. This is all unprecedented.

But, hey, it’s just rain. There wasn’t earthquake or something worse. You wait around and wait for the rain to stop.
