When baseball teams shell out hundreds of millions of dollars (or, more accurately, get taxpayers to shell out hundreds of millions of dollars) to put retractable roofs on their stadiums, the expectation is that they will be used when appropriate.

Marlins Park has a roof. The team didn't close it. The game was delayed by rain.

To make matters worse, the Marlins were unprepared for a rain delay because, you know, they shouldn't have a rain delay.

After 16 minutes, they managed to close the roof and get the game started again. 

So much for MLB's added emphasis on the pace of play.
