  • Roof expected to be open for Game 3

    HOUSTON -- Mankind's desire for shelter goes back to the days of the cave men. But Major League Baseball is sending signals it thinks the Houston Astros' desire for a roof over their heads has gone a little too far.
    QUOTE
    So commissioner Bud Selig is expected to decide personally that the roof of Minute Maid Park should be open for Game 3 of the World Series on Tuesday night.[/b][/quote]

    I know many of you want Houston to lose this series, but I think it's BS that Bud is gonna decide what happens with the roof in Houston.

    It should be open all the time or closed all the time.

    It shouldn't be decided on a game by game basis.

          I want Houston to lose this series, I think retractable roofs should be open at all times unless it is actually fucking raining, and what's more, I know that this is well within the power of the commissioner to decide.

              He's the commissioner of baseball during the freakin' World Series.

              What else does he have to do, yaks? You've got the job of blowin' both Hillary and Bill for the next 50 years, so that's out.

              And Stark wrote that MLB didn't have a hand in keeping the Juicebox closed during the DS and LCS, which is what I figured.

                Yup and in the NLCS it was ok, but now it's not?

                  I asked this question during one of the GDTs. The roof should not be closed just because Roger fucking Clemens wants it closed.

                  If it's raining and it helps avoid a delay, then close it. Otherwise leave it open and play baseball the way it is supposed to be played - outside.

                    It wasn't OK in the NLCS either, but better late than never for Bud to intervene.

                      You're talking about Bud Selig...I wouldn't have put him in charge of a 7-11 and the dude is Commissioner of baseball.

                        "Shemp" Selig is being forced by Chicagoland "La Famiglia" to even things up for the Sox.

                          The noise was good, but I thought they phoned in a lot of the funk.

                            I think it's important to note that having the roof open for the NLCS would only matter if the Caridnals could actually put the bat on the ball...

                              I don't think anybody's saying the roof being open would have won us Games 3 or 4. It's just that indoor baseball blows.
