Cubs, Rangers Postponed; Makeup Date TBD

The Cubs have their second postponement of the year, before the end of the first homestand.

With severe thunderstorm watches and warnings posted into the evening, and flood watches and warnings extended into Thursday, Major League Baseball (who had the call on this game because it's the Rangers' only visit to Wrigley this year) decided to postpone Wednesday night's contest between the Cubs and the Texas Rangers.

The game has not yet been rescheduled; a date will be announced later.

As of now, Thursday afternoon's contest between the two teams, the final game of a scheduled 10-game homestand (now with two rainouts, putting the Cubs on pace for 20 rainouts this year... wait, that doesn't work that way, does it?) is still on. Considering this Thursday daytime forecast:

SShowers and possibly a thunderstorm. Some of the storms could produce small hail, gusty winds, and heavy rain. High near 7O. Breezy, with a south wind around 2O mph, with gusts as high as 3O mph. Chance of precipitation is 1OO%. New rainfall amounts between 1 and 2 inches possible.  

... that doesn't look real likely, either. You'll note the forecast high temperature. In other words, we get warm rain instead of cold rain. Someday, the sun will shine on Wrigley Field again. Maybe next month.
