Cubs Trying to Get Thursday’s Game Pushed, Neutral Site Up in the Air

Chicago Cubs

Chicago Cubs President of Business Operations Crane Kenney was interviewed on 670 The Score today, and as you might expect, the topic for the day is how the Cubs get out of this ridiculous one-day trip to what will be a hurricane-impacted Washington D.C. on Thursday.

The Cubs are working on it, but some of the ideas may already be off the table:

Getting the Friday home game bumped back to be a rare nighttime contest would certainly help with the travel, but it’s not even in the ballpark – so to speak – as getting the Washington game pushed to the end of the season on October 1.

There are obviously a lot of contingencies here that are dependent on what happens with the weather, so we might see a decision delayed until the last possible moment (i.e., hopefully, right before the Cubs would otherwise be getting on a plane tomorrow night).

Meanwhile, a report out of Washington suggests a neutral site is still possible for Thursday:

Pushing to end of season is the ideal outcome, but a neutral site (Milwaukee is off that day, for example) would be better than no change at all.

Please do the right thing, MLB … otherwise the Cubs might have horrible travel imposed upon them for no reason at all, as they sit and stare at this thing all Thursday night:
