Yep and I had tickets to that game and there were quite a few of us who couldn't figure out why it was cancelled. It was a bit chilly but the sun was still out, and I've been to games that were played in much colder temperatures. Not to mention that the Brewers somehow managed to get their game in at County Stadium that same night, but I digress...

Yep, and I was one of them!

It was my understanding that the umpires, not the home team, makes the pregame decision whether to postpone a game on team's last trip into a city, which s pretty much any team that isn't in your division. Maybe they changed the rule and I missed it.

MLB can say whatever they want but I would assume whatever is best for business is what happens.
