I'm running out of ways to complain about this team. I actually have the time to watch the game today, which is pretty rare on the weekends, I'm just not sure I want to waste the 3 hours. Although with a Smoltz/Ryu matchup the game could be done very early.
Good luck Cubbies, even the worse teams win once in awhile.

It sounds so weird to say: Nice walk by Baez. Keep taking those outside curves and down and in sliders, kid, and eventually they'll have to swallow hard and try to work the strike zone a bit, and you'll bury them.
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.
