This sucks what happened last night

Yeah, that's why Philadelphia isn't normally allowed to host championship sporting events...

They finally called it after the 6th because that chick in the front row's cell phone got too wet to send text messages

They plan to try to resume tomorrow night

Let's do this...


When I lived in Orlando for a few years from '03-07', I frequented Devil Rays games a few times a month during the season and can honestly say there wasn't more than 7,500 (and that was at a Yankees game) people in attendance at any one game I was at.

While it's great to have the support of Tampa/St. Pete, it really is dissapointing as a true Rays fan to see all the people show up now and not during the regular season.

Who knows, maybe (hopefully) now that they've won more than 70 games in a season and is in the World Serious, things will change.

The Rays will either get more loyal paying fans or they will move.

That's what frightens me. That it might be too late for the Rays to garner support. Look at what baseball did to the Expos. Although MLB owned the team and had most major rights to the club, how much harder would it be to do the same thing with the Rays?

Wouldn't suprise me one bit. In this day and age it's all about revenue.

Cheers!

I do usually prefer that the National League win the series.

Congrats to the Phillies, well done!

I'm not a fan of the DH. You should have to bat if you are throwing at batters. Also, the Mets are my favorite team so I'd like to see their league being the strongest

What a great completion of a game. Woo-hoo for the Phils, congrats to the Rays.

Since it was tied, I would have liked them replay the entire game. And since they went past 6, it should have been played in Tampa.

Just my opinion.

You might fomd someone else to agree with you if it was 3-2 instead of 3-1 when they finally called the game.

My opinion is that they should have called that game in the 2nd or third inning. There's no way they should have been playing in those conditions at all

Phillies won-- my second guess!!! First was Angels, but I can't believe they lost to the dam Red Sox. Surprising that Tampa made it that far though.

Well, I just found out they changed the rule but, for the entire age of baseball (except for starting this season) if a game went past 4 and 1/3 innings, was tied and had to be delayed (and couldn't be resumed that day), it was to be replayed in it's entirety.

Anyone up for a PARADE?

What is a 1/3rd inning?

After one batter is retired in that half of the inning.


So if a pitcher leaves the game in the bottom of the 7th with two outs, he pitched for 6 and 2/3 innings.

TheGnar, you think too much.


My grandpa was the ultimate baseball fan. He'd have loved watching this with me.

OK I still don't get it. The first out would be 1/6th of an inning not 1/3rd wouldn't it?
And wouldn't it be two thirds if an inning after the FOURTH out? i.e. bottom of the inning FIRST out on the home team, not the second out? The second out would be 5/6th of an inning wouldn't it?

I've always thought that three outs equals half an inning. Six outs equals a whole inning and that was what mattered. I've never heard of rules about thirds of an inning..

But a pitcher only pitches their half of the inning - so that is all that matters. If they record all 27 outs of a 9 inning game for their team, they have pitched 9 innings, not 4 and a half.

I'll take that as a compliment?

Bingo.

Sorry. I love baseball and after 13 years of it I tend to get technical when speaking about it.

And (has nothing to do with it) I don't really like Bud Selig and all the changes he has made but I guess the game has changed with the times.

So then a game is really 54 outs and 18 innings isn't it?

How many people were there, they expected 300K.
post #57 of 58
I saw a 2 million estimate, but I don't know how they can ever figure those things out. It took us 20 minutes to walk 1 block along the route, the people were packed in so tight. There would have been many more than there was if SEPTA/PATCO/NJ Transit could have figured out how to get them all down there.

Good for you Phillie Phans! Parades really ROCK!! I'm glad it went well

I went to one of the Cowboys 90s Superbowl Championship parades.

A massive riot broke out right after I left.

I was sitting at the bar during happy hour watching the live news footage of the chaos going on downtown.
