Can anyone explain to me why they didn’t just call the game last night instead of delaying it in the ninth?

Resign or Re-sign?

My thoughts exactly!

Off the subject; and I wish him the best, since he is a Brave; but McLouth is not even putting the ball in play! Strikes out way too much! i trust Bobby; but it seems to me he could find some way to get Infante or Hinske(in left) or Cabrera (in center; who would have thought a month ago we would be asking for more playing time for Melke?) in the game. Isn’t ther some evidence in BP before the game of McLouth’s troubles seeing the ball?
