    Yeah. I'm pretty sure we won't see Cub baseball this weekend.

    Iíll hold off on making the Cards IGT until we get clarification on whether we are playing this weekend.

    Highly doubtful we are, but not official just yet

    If they skip the weekend I think Iíd set the rotation as Lester, Chatwood, Hendricks, Darvish, Mills. That way you get Hendricks and Darvish in both of the upcoming the Brewers and Cardinals series.

    If they are off today and tomorrow but play 2 Sunday Iíd let Lester and Hendricks start the doubleheader and throw Mills in the bullpen.

    Some of the Astros don't look the same now that they don't know what pitch is coming and when. lol

    8/5 & 8/6: Cubs (9-2) at Royals (3-9) IGT

    Looks like weíll find out soon about the rest of the weekend.

    Hereís my idea. If the cards canít play this weekend, cancel their Monday game vs Pittsburgh. Cubs-pirates doubleheader Monday in Pitt before the Cubs go to Cleveland. Pirates then go to STL on Wednesday. Shorten the cards season to 55 games. They canít make up 55 games in 48 days. This would make it a slightly better 50 games in 48 days.

    Plus 2 bonus games vs the pirates for the Cubs.

    Eh, my idea is they just go ahead and send the Cardinals home for the year.

    Astros are 2nd in MLB in wRC+ at 125. I think they're doing just fine.

    I know that MLB arenít in the business of suspending players when they should but if they were, whoever flouts the rules and puts the season is jeopardy should be suspended for the rest of the year. That means every Marlins player who went to the casino that night and whichever members of the Phillies and Cardinals who werenít doing the right thing and tested positive. Screw them all.

    I donít think the Phillies had any positives and Iím pretty sure nobody has been able to prove the Cards/casino thing.

    As much as Iíd love to blame the Cards, it just as easily could have been any team. It could be the Cubs next. Even if you do everything correct you can get COVID. If you get it, you can spread it to your teammates.

    Youíre right. It was the Marlins players going to a club allegedly, I thought it was a casino. If youíre doing nothing wrong and get Covid, that is a different story. Nothing you can do about it. But if youíre breaking protocol, it should be an automatic suspension. Maybe the season wonít be able to continue soon and everything will be shut down. I hope not but player and staff safety is more important.

    Jesse Rogers is saying the entire Cardinals series is PPD due to the positive test.

    Player flew back with team from MIL and practiced with the Cards on Wed/Thurs. Cubs flying back to CHI tonight
