It’s not all making fun of the Chicago Cubs around here these days. Look, I can also make fun of the Miami Marlins for having a rain delay at a stadium with a retractable roof!
Since the Marlins have a domed stadium, their crew doesn’t have the proper tarps for a rain delay, because, you know, they would never have one with a roof, in theory. That’s how you get a bunch of confused, lost people in polos, doing whatever they can to try and keep the ground dry.

Marlins Park, let’s recall, is costing Miami taxpayers close to a billion dollars in part thanks to that pricey retractable roof, which the Marlins owners insisted on because they decided it rained too much during baseball season in Miami. So why didn’t they close the damn roof?
Marlins president Samson said he has weather APPs on his phone. "I tried to predict cloud would go north and it went south on..stadium."

Not everybody can be the Cubs, but some teams sure are giving it the old college try.
