In Major League Baseball, Game six of the World Series was postponed. With a storm on the radar heading straight for St. Louis, Major League Baseball and the Commissioner’s Office decided it was best for the teams and for the fans to push game six and a potential game seven back.  And even though, with 20/20 hindsight vision, the game in St. Louis could have been played. But now looking forward, how will it  affect the teams and their play on the field? Well, Jaime Garcia will still pitch game six for the Cardinals and Kyle Lohse will be ready to go if Garcia doesn’t pitch as well as he did in the second game of the series. And if there is a game seven, it would be hard to imagine that the Cardinal ace, Chris Carpenter, won’t get the call. On the Rangers end, Colby Lewis and C.J. Wilson will probably get the calls for games six and seven respectively. They will be looking to close out the series against a Cardinals lineup that is being switched around because of injuries affecting Matt Holliday. Holliday has been unable to protect Albert Pujols in the series and it is being said that if these games were during the regular season, he would be on the disabled list.


In the world of basketball, the NBA season does not look to be starting anytime soon. Days following the commissioner’s announcement about more than 100 games being cancelled, and a message from President Obama telling the NBA to get their act together and learn from the NFL, talks between the NBA and the Players Association lasted 15 hours. The talks ran past 3 a.m. and were the first bright spot in a while for the negotiations. This all occurred as superstars LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul withdrew from a global exhibition tour beginning Wednesday.


In College Football, West Virginia’s move to the Big XII is not a given. Louisville may just take, what was thought to be the Mountaineers spot. But nothing will be official until Missouri moves to the SEC.
