Yeah, TBS was absolutely responsible and both clubs confirmed they were


willing to move the game up but TBS refused. Apparently some exec was running around Wrigley telling reporters that wasn't true, but like you said then why wasn't the game moved up when everyone knew the imminent rain was coming until the scheduled start time. You and I certainly knew it and so did they.

I think it was probably more driven by a desire to try and keep it primetime with ignorant and wishful thinking that somehow the weather was wrong (dumb). Also possibly with the prospect of a likely Stras start if pushed back a day, and maybe least likely to try and help LA because I think the ratings are actually higher if your Cubs are on TV the longest.
