It makes sense because I'm sure the ratings would take a hit but, yeah, I didn't realize that was an option.

I imagine that if it's ppd tonight then tomorrow will be a 1:00 start due to travel back to Was for Game 5.

Right. That's how they handled the postponement of Game 2 in DC last year. They made it up at 1:00 the following day, which had been a travel day.

Cubs GM Jed Hoyer and Manager Joe Maddon just headed up into the Nats clubhouse.

Mike Rizzo followed them. Looks like decision could be near.

Cubs just tweeted that the start is delayed due to weather.  Looks like they will eventually cancel.

The only explantion I can see for Werth's inclusion in the lineup is his agent and Bryce Harper's agent Scott Boras!

It's supposed to keep raining steady and harder most of the night. They would need to wait 5 or 6 hours which would be ridiculous for everyone. Game could have been called hours ago.

That sucks.  Can't get radio reception in my office.  What are my options for listening online?

These dimwits on the MLBN can't seem to figure out that if Stras goes tomorrow it will be on his regular 5 day rotation. He pitched last Friday and you can count the days on the calendar. ;)

Tune in app also has it. Doesn't look like it will matter. Tomorrow though.

Oh c'mon now - MLB wants to keep to a schedule, for both future games and the plans of fans.  Why does it hurt to wait ?

Because there is a 100 percent chance of rain ?

Good ball players don't make experts. Or knowledgeable commentators.
