Again, we’ll see if this game even gets played on Thursday at all, but here’s some tentatively great news for you about the makeup game against the Nationals:
As of now, the Nats are planning to start Joe Ross on Thursday against the Cubs

To be sure, Joe Ross is a talented young arm returning from injury who could surprise and dominate the Cubs. Totally possible.
But he’s not Max Scherzer.
And that’s who the Cubs were otherwise possibly going to face on Thursday (two Max Scherzer starts in one four-game series), so getting to face Ross instead would be a huge win. Please let it play out that way.
