It looks like Robert Manfred’s idea to start the baseball season a whole week earlier is starting to come back and bite because we have another game that has been snowed-out for the Cubs on Monday. Starting on March 29th allocated more off-days in the regular season, but with all these postponed games from the Cubs and the rest of the league, we might just end up with the same number.
It’s still the middle of April in Chicago, where the weather usually is still pretty poor at this point. We just wouldn’t expect three games postponed due to snow and rain at Wrigley Field in one week. The Cubs were also postponed in Cincinnati once too. This has also not been a pleasant experience for the 29 other teams with a ton of bad-weather games being postponed or delayed.
It looks like the Cubs have another off-day, which means you can relive the moment from their last game played on Saturday when they came from behind 10-2 to win 14-10.
