Storms are coming.

Possible severe thunderstorms are in the forecast for Chicago as the evening goes on, so the Cubs are being proactive:

This is a good idea and something they should consider in the future if a similar situation occurs. Of course, if they had scheduled an afternoon game today, they'd have been able to play with no issues. But this is a good way of trying to beat the storms.

The BCB game preview will still post at its normal time for a night game, 5 p.m. CT. Game threads will have times adjusted for the earlier start, starting with the First Pitch Thread at 6:30 p.m. CT.
