Phils Out-Foxed: Bud Takes the Ball Out of Hamel's Hands

'I Don't Mind All the Rain Talk,' Sincerely, Home Plate Umpire Jeff Kellogg
Bill Conlin: On a Rainy Night in Philly, MLB Drops the Ball

"Phillies fan and climatologist extraordinary Joe Bastardi had fired off an angry 6:30 p.m. update to his blog on AccuWeather's professional site under the headline: 'Cancel the Game Tonight.'

Bastardi wrote there was no way in hell or Sea World the rain would let up. Indeed, a rapidly developing coastal storm off the Mid-Atlantic States had slowed the progress of a massive upper low funneling cold air across the Great Lakes. Result: The worst weather fiasco in World Series history and another stain on the boobs who run the cash-obsessed national pastime." -- 10.28.08, Bill Conlin, Philadelphia Inquirer
