Bah: Today’s Cubs-Brewers Game Has Been Postponed

Chicago Cubs

Of course. We finally sidestep that horrible day off that tends to follow the first game of the season, and Chicago’s weather is like … NAH. Nice try, bro. See ya tomorrow.

This afternoon’s Cubs-Brewers game has been officially postponed until May 30, when it’ll be played as a double-header.

Note that the Cubs rotation will be pushed back a day, meaning Justin Steele will now go tomorrow and Marcus Stroman will get an extra day of rest, pitching on Sunday instead. I’m not sure about the Brewers pitching plans just yet, but I’ll update this post when we know more.

In the meantime, the upshot is that this kinda helps the Cubs pitching outlook, with all of Wade Miley, Adbert Alzolay, Alec Mills, and others on the shelf. The Cubs may be able to extend their four-man rotation one day longer than expected.

UPDATE: The Brewers are following the Cubs’ lead, moving their starters forward a day. So sadly, we won’t luck out and miss Brandon Woodruff entirely. He’s just going tomorrow, instead.
