Time after time in the MLB playoffs rally towels and different traditions form. Football seems most know for rally towels, but come playoff time every team will bust out some sort of tradition.
Is it acceptable to say that the rally towels (white) played a roll in Matt Holliday missing that fly ball last night?
Honestly, I believe it did play a part in him missing the ball. MLB needs to set some sort of rule for this. In no way is it fair for a game to be decided by a fly ball missed because of alleged white towels blending in the ball background.
Holliday says he lost the ball in the lights, which makes everything I just said have no relevance. Wainwright, the starting pitcher from last night, argues that they towels did make all the difference. Here was his opinion:
"It doesn't really seem fair that an opposing team should be able to allow their fans to shake white towels when there's a white baseball flying through the air. How about Dodger Blue towels?"
Either way MLB needs to take a closer look at this in the offseason, and they will. The most interesting part of this story is yet to come, though. I'm excited to see how the Cardinal fans will retaliate with their own towels. Either way the Cardinals are done! Here is my prediction for the rest of the playoffs:
Dodgers over Cardinals
Phillies over Rockies
Angels over Red Sox
Yankees over Twins
Phillies over Dodgers
Angels over Yankees
Angels over Phillies
MVP: Chone Figgins----Which will up his FA price even more
Who gives a shit about Rally Towels anyways? Rally Monkey anyone?!
