Chicago Cubs

The Cubs were postponed tonight due to weather for the 6th time this season, equal to 2016 and 2017 combined. They will play the make up game against the Braves on Aug. 30 in Atlanta before heading to Philadelphia for a game on the 31st. It means the Cubs will play 23 consecutive days from Aug. 21 to Sept. 12, including 11 straight on the road in 4 different cities. The good news is the Cubs won't have to find a spot starter for a doubleheader this Saturday in Cincinnati. Jon Lester will start on Friday followed by Kyle Hendricks and Jose Quintana on Saturday before Yu Darvish throws in the finale against the Reds on Sunday. The rain out and an off day on Monday allows them to roll with their five starters.

The Cubs will leave Miami without one of their starters earning a victory in their 4 game series. More important: Three of four struggled against a Marlins lineup stripped of dangerous, proven MLB hitters. Jose Quintana is the latest to struggle, though he took a no-hitter into the fifth inning on Sunday. His day was done after he ended up giving up six hits and six runs in six innings pitched. Jon Lester and Yu Darvish also struggled this weekend as a Cubs strength on paper did not start the season as one. Only Kyle Hendricks pitched well.
