The autumn weather in New York and Philadelphia has been beautiful, warm and sunny. Perfect weather for the final baseball games. We should have already started that seven game series that we all anticipated between the two best MLB teams in 2011. It could have been staged for charity so that even MLB, Inc. might have difficulty saying no.
It should have started yesterday, Saturday afternoon, and all the games should be played in the afternoon on seven consecutive days as the old World Series had been from about 1946 through 1956. Afternoon games would not conflict with those stupid MLB playoff games with teams that most Americans do not care about.
