Talks are underway between baseball commissioner Bud Selig and Major League Baseball to prevent the shortening of World Series Games on account of weather.

DuPuy said talks also were underway on the issue of not shortening postseason games. Selig decided last month that Game 5 of the World Series wouldn’t be cut short by rain. While the game was suspended with the score tied after 5 1/2 innings, Selig said if one team had been ahead when play was stopped, he would have presided over the longest rain delay in baseball history until weather allowed action to resume.

“The commissioner has indicated his intention of getting that done,” Selig said. “There are various approaches that could be taken, and we’re still working on the process.”

Approval of the players’ association might be necessary.

I thought the umps were trying to force that to happen in this year's World Series. I didn't get to watch that many games, but that was the worst officiating I have ever seen. I'm glad to see them making this change.

PS - Anybody want to buy the Cubs? They are for sale...
