This from the AP as of moments ago:

PHILADELPHIA — The World Series won’t resume until Wednesday night at the earliest.

With rain still falling in Philadelphia, Major League Baseball decided not to attempt to complete Game 5 on Tuesday night.
The game, played in increasingly heavy rain, was suspended Monday following a 30-minute delay with the Philadelphia Phillies and Tampa Bay Rays tied 2-2 after 5½ innings. It was the first time a World Series game wasn’t played to completion on the same day.


Poor Bud Selig. The guy always looks like he gulped a glass of milk before realizing it was sour. He presided over the tied All-Star Game and now he has a Game 5 that will take three days (at least) to play.

But what choice does he have? If you’re anywhere in the Northeast, you know how nasty it is outside today.

Here’s the question: Outside of Philly and St. Pete, does anybody even care?

UPDATE, 1:54 p.m.: One of our readers is a meteorologist and he weighed in on the situation on his blog. Thanks, Owen.
