MLB does it again

How often can MLB botch things up?  Last night was a complete debacle!  It has been noted on ESPN that Bud was not going to end this game until at least 9 innings were played.  In other words, he was taking the rule book into his own hands.  Personally, I dont have a problem with that.  The World Series needs to be played out!  Here is where I have a problem:  #1)  The players and public need to know before hand the rules by which the game is being played.  I find it completely irresponsible of MLB to allow me the fan to watch the game thinking it is being played under one set of rules when Bud changed that and didnt notify us.  Apparently he did notify both GM's.    #2)  I also have a problem that the game was played as long as it was last night.  Bud wanted the game stopped with a tie.  He got it.  He needed it!  Why, because we the fans did not know the rules and he knew there would be anarchy in Philadelphia!!!  The game should have been stopped at least an inning if not two prior.  The Phillies would have a 2-1 lead with 4 or 5 innings to play.  Because the fans didn't know Bud changed the rules, they would believe that the series is over and the Championship theirs.  The fans didnt know he intended to finish the game.  This is MLB manipulating the game, plain and simple.  It shouldn't happen and it could have been avoided if everyone knew the rules going into it.  This is not a group of kids playing Monopoly Bud, this is our Nations past time!!!  You dont make the rules up as you go along.
