Default Game postponed:

It snowed in Kansas City yesterday...they still played.

There was a frozen monsoon at Wrigley Field yesterday...they still played.

However, there have already been more games postponed due to weather conditions than in ANY previous season...and it's only February?

There are several reasons for this besides the crazy weather...which may not clear up for several more weeks...whoopee!

In no particular order...

1.) The Players' Union demanded more off-days during the season. This made it necessary to start the season a week early.

2.) Expanded Post-Season schedule guarantees November Baseball.

3.) Due specifically to greed, Double-Headers are persona non grata.

There has been talk of a 154-game schedule...but, again, the greed would prevent that.

What's your solution?

Internally- We spend too much time assuring our rights without learning the responsibilities that should accompany them.
Externally - No matter how much we claim to take the higher moral ground, we have neither respected nor attempted to understand other cultures.
