I feel bad that the Astros players had to go to Milwaukee and play through Ike while their families had to stay behind during the storm. I do feel bad.

But a MLB PLAYER represented by the MLB UNION calling ANYONE greedy???? Are you serious????

Of all the angles to take, that was the wrong one. Plus the MLBPA ok'd the move.

Grow up, Lance.

Zambrano's no hitter should have an * by it in the record books.

That was a the worst decision baseball could have possibly made. It just goes to show how much Selig sucks as a commish.

Any other situation and I'd agree with you WF, players are greedy, but when it comes to natural disasters, in your hometown, baseball should become a distant priority. Selig was wrong to make these players play these games while their city and families were in possible danger. Not to mention, making them play in "North Wrigley." So who benefits from the gate? Milwaukee? Houston?

I won't say that Selig is the worst commissioner, but what I will say is that this was a terrible decision.

Pretty hard to defend the commish on this one.
