Tough year for real south siders with this and Paulie retiring.

the real reason behind the Wrigley renovations
If today's games are rained-out, the only future common off-day shared by the Cubs and Giants prior to the conclusion of the MLB regular season is Thursday September 4th.
The Cubs have that day off in the middle of a six-game homestand, and the Giants are already on the road, playing at Colorado Wednesday afternoon 9/3 before beginning a series at Detroit Friday night 9/5.
Neither team would be playing more than 20-days in a row if the games are moved to 9/4, so the rescheduling would not require a waiver by the MLBPA.
Gordon Beckham traded to Angels because...why the hell not?
RHRP Blake Parker has been recalled from Iowa as the 26th man for the second game only (the "regularly scheduled" game)...

pouring in Chicago, delaying suspended game
A player must remain on the Bereavement List for at least three days but no more than seven.
If the player needs additional time beyond seven days, he can be placed on the Restricted List.
Who is this Olt that you speak of?
I'm a firm believer in "first things first" and so I'm hoping Cubs first and second off-season priorities are a quality starting pitcher and then another quality starting pitcher. Get a couple of those first and another OF will be icing on the cake.
Of course, the minor league season will be winding down soon. Strange to think that this guy threw a no-hitter four years ago, and now his games look like batting practice.
Price retired 23 in a row to finish the game, pitched a CG, struck out 9, walked none, 0 earned runs
gets the loss
Wow, I wonder if the "injury" is what has been affecting Jackson's performance the past few months. Hopefully, he can rehab his "right lat strain" and work on his struggles in a few "rehab starts" before the end of the year.
big change in international rules
no players at your fancy facilities before they turn 16 or 6 months before eligible to sign
True....I mean Ruggiano/Coghlan have done pretty well...and Sweeney is signed for next year too?
It'll be interesting to see how that all shakes out.
