Not so much fun, waiting for the rain to clear yesterday.
Starter Jake Arrieta even tweeted he was pissed.
You can imagine what Reds manager Bryan Price was saying.
But the silver lining is a little rest.
Pedro Strop's got a minor foot thing going on, Neil Ramirez and Justin Grimm are on the 15 day, and in the 16 games the Cubs have played so far the starting pitcher has gone 7 innings only 3 times.
Arrieta twice and Wood once.
6 games have gone six or over, 4 have gone in the fives, and 3 in the threes.
So the pen has been used alot.
Maybe that's just Joe Maddon's style?
I thought pulling Kyle Hendricks last Thursday with one out in the 5th was kind of a quick hook, but I ain't gonna argue with the results so far.
(I didn't compare with all the other teams, maybe that's just the norm early in the season with everybody finding their game and the rotten weather.)
Anyway, just saying a rainout came at an okay time for the bullpen.
But today's supposed to be 61 and sunny in Cincinnati, and it is Arrieta so we'll all get our Cubs fix after the disappointment of yesterday.
And if you watched last night, the Blackhawks put away Nashville, put Crawford back in goal, and all is pretty awesome.
