Neutral field? Are you kidding me? There’s ridiculous and more ridiculous and whatever this was supposed to be.
Commissioner Bud Selig should be embarrassed to have thrown a team in the thick of playoff contention into this situation. If the Astros miss the playoffs by a game, remember this one.
Drayton McLane shouldn’t be given a pass, either. He refused to believe predictions that a monstrous storm was headed for Houston. He wanted those three home games against the Chicago Cubs so badly that his judgment was clouded.
Had he acted earlier, had he acknowledged that the Astros and Cubs simply weren’t going to play at Minute Maid Park, this series could have been played at a true neutral site over the weekend.
Anywhere else would have been better than what the Astros walked into Sunday night. This was a home game for the Cubs. Plain and simple. And dumb.

One No-No (Zambrano), one One-Hitter (Lilly & Co.). Seems like this was a pretty big advantage to the Cubbies.
