MLB Officials Meet To Discuss Possibility of Postponing Game 6

CBS Sports reports that "The Cardinals have a meeting at 1 p.m. CT with Major League Baseball to determine if Game 6 of the World Series can be played Wednesday night, or whether to postpone it due to the threat of rain in St. Louis, Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak told 590 The Fan in St. Louis."

"I also think it makes a lot of sense not to play if it's going to be sort of stop-and-go baseball and we're going to be pulling the tarp multiple times," Mozeliak said. "Not being a weather forecaster, it doesn't look good based on what I read. But 1 p.m. I have a meeting where they're going to hone in on what's best for the fans."

They plan on announcing as soon as possible as to not string things out.

A postponement might give the Cardinals the opportunity to start Chris Carpenter in game 7.
