  • It is very weird the way this is worded, but I do not believe that Sims has to come back out tomorrow. It would be completely insane for the 3-batter rule to be forced to continue after a suspended game, but I wouldn't put it past the MLB.

  • RT @MoEgger1530: Major League Baseball is such an unbelievably poorly-run operation right now.

  • Reds have India, Barnhart, Farmer and Blandino as the first four batters up. I know that you don't want to punt a game, but you are better off saving your top arms for G2. I doubt Antone is available. Reds odds of winning right now are 16%.

  • MLB should punish the umpiring crew for stubborn incompetence tonight. They jeopardized the health and safety of the players, coaches and fans. They undermined the integrity of the game. You can't let that kind of reckless and irrational exercise of power go unchecked.

  • My guess is the Reds go with Fulmer or Romano tomorrow in the suspended game. They are already down a run and odds are they give up at least 1 more. It doesn't make sense to keep Sims in and probably not have him available in the full game.

  • Since it was so easy to suspend the game and finish tomorrow, why were the umpires so adamant about continuing play when the conditions were so awful, even dangerous? It was insanely stubborn. Also affected the game. If I were MLB, I'd penalize the crew for being so negligent.

  • The only exceptions to the 3-batter rule for relievers are illness or injury. So I assume Sims has to pitch to one more batter. Hope that doesn't make him unavailable for the later game.
