Major League Baseball has decided to postpone Game 6 of the World Series that was scheduled for Wednesday night in St. Louis because of inclement weather. The game will be made up on Thursday, and Game 7 will be Friday night, if necessary. The Rangers lead the Cardinals 3-2 in the best-of seven series.
On its Twitter feed, MLB wrote:

Former Red Sox general manager Mike Port joined Dennis & Callahan Wednesday morning to discuss Boston's new GM, Ben Cherington, and how the club will do in the wake of Theo Epstein's move to the Cubs.
Port was Epstein's predecessor, serving as acting GM of the Red Sox from February through November of 2002. Following the hire of Epstein, Port returned to his role as vice president of baseball operations for the team, a position he had held since 1996.

Port worked with both Cherington, then the Red Sox director of player development, and Epstein during his time in Boston. While Cherington worked closely under Epstein for the past nine years, Port said that the two are not completely alike.
