Maybe it was the high ticket prices at the Rolling Stones concert at the United Centre that brought the rain? We know the Stones are having a tough go at selling out this tour. Everybody had a chance to run over and see them. I’ll tell ya, it would have been awesome to see the Stones in Chicago with Taj Mahal! As it stands, we’re going to Toronto next week to get our Rocks Off.
Maybe it was Edwin Jackson’s turn on the mound that brought it.
“Sometimes when you’re having a season like I’m having, that’s how it is,” Jackson said.
Or maybe it was because the Cubs were up 2-0. Yeah, that’s it. I’ll take that as my answer.
The Cubs were facing White Sox pitcher, Chris Sale.
“You hate to waste any time you get up 2-0 against a pitcher like Chris Sale,” Sveum said. “You score two and hopefully a couple more and you’ve done your share off a guy like that. It’s too bad the game has to get canceled that quick. We knew that rain was coming.”
The Cubs are riding a two game winning streak going in to today’s game at Wrigley Field. Scott Feldman gets the ball against Johnny Danks.
Game time is 2:20pm eastern. Barring Rain.
