All right, without ceding your point, Which I reserve the right to do at some point in the future, let me argue another point.
My brother says that you cannot sue a doctor for being wrong, you can only sue a doctor for being incompetent.
By the same token, we cannot file a protest because the tarp malfunctioned.
We should, however, be able to file a quite valid protest on the grounds that ground crew incompetence caused the tarp to malfunction, Resulting in an unplayable field, and should therefore result in a forfeit by the home team?
Very trivial point, but do the statistics from this game count yet, or not until the game is completed on Friday? When Hanser Alberto steps to the plate in Philadelphia, will the scoreboard show his batting average to be what it was before the start of the suspended game, or what his average is after going 2-3 today?
