Just a quick post, but for those of you hoping for a closeout of Game Five tonight are out of luck. MLB has officially suspended play until at least Wednesday at the earliest and that the hopes for getting a game in tonight are out of the question. Via NBC in Philly....
Phils phans will have to wait at least another night to complete Game 5 of the World Series.Well that's a bummer. I can't imagine the agony that Phillies fans are going through right now, and I have to think it's just the opposite for Rays fans at the moment. The longer this gets drawn out, the better it is for Tampa. This is also good for the NBA who's season tips off tonight. Without a World Series game on, Sports fans are sure to head over to TNT tonight for their doubleheader.
A wet, muddy field logo tells the story of Game 5’s rain delay.
Major League Baseball has announced that Game 5 has been delayed until Wednesday.
The announcement was made as the Philadelphia area continued to be pounded by rain, wind and even snow in some areas.
Rain and wind suspended Game 5 between the Phillies and Rays in the middle of the sixth inning on Monday night.
Whenever the game continues the Phils will be coming to bat with the game tied 2-2.

FYI- There's also no word on ratings from last night's water-logged game, but I'm sure it's not going to be a good total. I'll try to get that number to you as soon as I come across it.
