Why don't we do it on the road?
The Tribune reported earlier today that the Cubs-Astros series remains up in the air. Although structural damage did not occur at the Juice Box, the Cubs are apparently refusing to fly down to Houston until no earlier than Monday.
In his post, Goat Reader Luke mentions the possibility of a game played in Atlanta.
I don't really care where they play, so long as they do it soon. The ironic thing is that Alfonso Soriano said a bit ago that the negative of the extra time off is that the Cubs might lose their rythym.
Uh, Fonz, you've lost like 7 of your last 10. I'm just saying.
The Astros, meanwhile, are one of the hottest teams out there. Seems like the time off could be more of a negative to them than it might be to the Cubs.
Update: The Tribune is reporting that two games have been scheduled in - of all places - Milwaukee. Goat Friend Paul Sullivan writes:
The Cubs and Houston Astros will play two games in Milwaukee, one on Sunday night at 7:05 and the other Monday afternoon at 1:05. The Astros will be the home team.
Luckily for Houston, the Cubs are unlikely to get a large crowd of fans willing to drive from Chicago to Milwaukee in order to see two extra Cub games. Equally fortunate for the Astros, the Cubs haven't shown a tenacity at winning ballgames in Milwaukee this year.
Put it to you another way: score.
