I figure there are a number of you who have this same "my dad was a Cub fan, taught me everything I know..." story. One day, probably still a long time from now, we'll be able to write a different joke without the sarcasm.
Okay, probably a long, looooong time from now.

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.
