Monsoon-ball has been brought to a halt, at least temporarily. Indra willing, the game will be called and we won't be subjected to the painful spectacle of Ryan Drese attempting to locate his talent. Learned something interesting from MelRon Proctorling. While the umps have the authority to halt a game in progress due to inclement weather, the home team's general manager decides whether the game will begin in the first place. Maybe Phillies GM Ed Wade doesn't get The Weather Channel.
