The rain is not gone. Check out the forecast for this weekend. It’s clear that God does not want the Cubs to win the division.
UPDATE: Today’s game postponed. They’ll play two tomorrow. Or they’ll try to, anyway. This is bad for the Cubs, I think. It is simply much harder to win two games in one day than win two games back to back.
It’s much more difficult to manage the bullpen. The players get tired, physically and psychologically. And these games are likely to be played — if they are played — in between rain delays, making things even worse. I won’t even get into how this wrecks the Cubs’ possible playoff rotation.
