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.

Cardinals only have to win 2 games in a row to win the Series.  Of course, the Rangers haven't lost back-to-back games in over 2 months.  Rangers in SIX.

What can be learned about an MLB team in 162 games that cannot be gathered in 150?

Nothing.

Though it will never happen due to the amount of money each team/stadium and MLB would lose, it amazes me every year that the games that actually decide who is the best team in baseball are all played in non-baseball weather.

September is even late for true "baseball" weather, but October is just ridiculous anymore.

If you don't want to lose games, baseball should at least start earlier in the year so that playoffs can be played in September. Not having playoff games cancelled in October.

Just a thought.

Probably the best decision. Live on the east coast so I don't know exactly how the weather is and has been in St. Louis, but after watching the Game 5 spectacle in 2008 between Philly and Tampa, this is the better way to go.

Nice before and after...  what is this, Rogaine?

MLB wants to see a Game 7 and Chris effin Carpenter pitch.  Unbelievable.

It's not going to matter!

Rangers in 6!

Let's Go Rangers!
