busch stadiumSo, the Cubs and Cardinals are making up last night’s rainout on August 30 as part of a doubleheader. But, since everything about yesterday’s game is pretty much the plan for today’s game (starters, lineups, etc.), it’s actually kinda like they’re making up the rainout today. And then they pushed today’s game to August 30.

I think it’d be more fun if they said that.

The Cubs go for the series win today, which wouldn’t have been the case last night. So that’s different.
