Houston we have a problem

Last night I was able to catch the last 3 innings of Z's no-no at a house full of Astro fans. The house was one of the few spared the numerous problems that were dealt Houston and many surrounding communities. As I watched the game it was quite obvious that the Astro players weren't on their game.

Tonight was the first time I had electricity and water and the internet. Many of their players had the same or worse problems to deal with. Now I understand the need to play the games within a certain time frame. But it seems outrageous to force the Astros to play in Milwaukee where 98% of the fans supported the Cubs. And before we tell them to just suck it up, ask yourself how you would really feel if the tables were turned.

Imagine having to leave town and your family behind without electricity and water. Since there is no electricity, there is a good chance they can't recharge the cell battery and call you or the towers aren't making the connections. Since gas is mostly unavailable how do your wife and children get to stores that are mostly unopen? Without the internet it was impossible to even know what was open or when it might even be open. For many people even the news wasn't available.

Look, I saw Z throw a great few innings, but let's not suggest the playing field was level. Somehow Selig again managed to make the wrong decision. This time it benefited the Cubs, but how long will this clueless used car salesman hold the fate of baseball franchises in his incapable hands.
