David Dalati of 790 The Sports Animal is reporting, based on an interview with Ed Wade, that the Chicago Cubs will be flying to Houston for this weekend's scheduled series with the Astros.
And seeing as how our buddy Ike is currently supposed to hit on Friday night/Saturday morning, the current thinking -- though not yet official -- is that Friday night's game will, instead, be played Friday afternoon. I'm guessing that if Ike actually does wipe out Houston, then Saturday's game will be cancelled, and that instead games will be attempted on either Sunday or Monday.
And, of course, we'll give you more info as we get it. -- John Royal
