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.

what is wrong with this country, we cancel games now b/c bad weather is "expected", why don;t we wait for the bad weather to come and then cancel the game. how many times to you listen to the weather reports and they are completely wrong.

 Don't let the picture fool you... They just took the tarp off the field (just look at MLB Network for proof), and now they're about to take batting practice. Oh, but it's too wet to play a game!! St. Louis has their fingerprints all over this decision.

 It WAS a stall tactic to advance it an extra day in case they get to a 7th game and Carpenter can pitch on 3 days rest. But that's fine. Enjoy Derek Holland on FULL rest if it gets that far, you manipulating tools.

It's not bad enough no one outside of TX or STL cares about this WS, but then they have one game rained out and another with constant rain delays. Good Riddance when this crap is over.

Check the stats... the Rangers haven't lost back-to-back games since Aug. 24-25 (45 games total)

I say you need to check the stats again.  The Rangers have never been up by a game with only one more needed to take it all!

I think this helps the Rangers. It gives Nolan one more day of rest since his last "throw out the first pitch" - so now Wash can bring him in as closer when Feliz walks his first batter in the 9th...

I call BS. This is just another stall tactic by LaRussa.
