Anyone who still thinks Wrigley Field is still the best park in baseball is kidding themselves. As if the right to pee into a trough wasn't enough to dissuade from that, today a game was called not because of the rain, but because of the condition of the field.
The fact is this is what the Cubs brass wanted to happen. They shouldn't have continued play in the 6th. It was pouring. They left the Sox batting in the top of the sixth for about 30 minutes in a downpour. Any other responsible groundkeeper would have had a tarp on the field. The cubs didn't; the sox extended the inning, which included a pitching change. With all that rain coming down, I never once saw and Quick-Dri(tm) thrown on the infield. (That could have been because Fox was busy showing a us a good NYY/NYM game) But it shows a pattern of behavior. Practically every other field in baseball would have been able to deal with the amount of rain that fell today. But Wrigley's lack of an adequate drainage system resulted in an infield that played like the dirt was replaced with marbles. I've seen little league fields that could handle water better.
