ST. LOUIS -- Game 6 of the World Series has been postponed due to expected inclement weather. It will now be scheduled for Thusrday night at 7:05 p.m. CT. Click here to read the Eye on Baseball Game 6 preview.

Having lived my whole life in the Midwest, I can tell you that drastic shifts in weather within a 24-hour period are pretty common, especially in the spring and fall. Unfortunately, the city of St. Louis has seen a drastic turn for the worse just in time to interfere with Game 6. Here's a picture from the field Tuesday afternoon:



And roughly 24 hours later ...



It was just bad timing.

If Garcia pitches lights out as he does at Home we will still need to hit the Ball. Pujols-Holliday-Berkman have to get hot tonight and then again Friday when we win. Carp will be able to pitch two innings if there is a Game 7 and that is priceless. This is not over

What is wrong with a little added suspence?

And if the postseason ended in September How could we call anyone Mr. October. :P

I have an idea. Let's start the season earlier.
How about ... the first of February.
Or they could move the game to Milwaukee. They have a roof.

; I would most ssuredly agree with your comments on the weather, and the time of year, however, as a die hard (sadly this year) Braves fan, I can most assuredly tell you that there is quite a difference between 150 games and what happens at the end of 162, of course you could also ask the red sox about that, though I doubt they would like to answer. Just sayin......

"The story has a picture of Monday and then roughly 24 hours later.....well heck today is actually Wednesday Ethal....hows about a pic of the field today?  Or maybe CBS doesn't have the technology to send someone out there with a camera phone at least?"

I believe the first picture is of Tuesday ( yesterday ) and the second one is of today.

Derek Holland is now a factor if there is a Game 7. If the games had gone off as scheduled, Holland will have had three days rest for Game 7. Wash says that Matt Harrison is the Game 7 starter, but if there is a Game 7 on Friday Holland will have full rest and will be ready to enter the game at first sign of a problem. It also means C.J. would be available for an inning or more if needed from the bullpen.
