Friday’s Cubs Game Pushed Back to 7:05pm to Accommodate MLB’s Absurd Travel Demands

Chicago Cubs

While I’m still thoroughly chapped about MLB’s persistent decision to send the Cubs back to Washington – despite the threat of another rainout – for a single game in the middle of what is now a 30-scheduled-games-in-30-days stretch, I am pleased to share that at least the City of Chicago is throwing the Cubs a bone.

Friday night games are basically not a thing in Chicago, so this is a rare exception being made to accommodate the Cubs’ travel. It sucks that this was necessary, but it was necessary. Good on the City and the Cubs organization for making it happen.
