Comcast teams up with Chicago Cubs in technology, marketing partnership

The wild inning that saved Cubs fans a whole lot of panicking as told in Tweets

The Chicago Cubs rescheduled their home opener to Tuesday at Wrigley Field due to freezing temperatures and accumulating snow Monday.

The Chicago Cubs' home opener against the Pittsburgh Pirates has been postponed because of snow.

The Cubs All-Star first baseman felt his back first tighten up last Monday in Cincinnati, but then the team had back-to-back off-days thanks to a rainout, so they had hoped he'd be good to go for the weekend in Milwaukee.

A comeback win from the Milwaukee Brewers versus the Chicago Cubs appeared to ruffle some feathers between fans at Friday night's game. As of Sunday, he was considered doubtful for Monday's series opener against the Pirates. Chatwood is 0-0 in two career starts against Pittsburgh with a 1.50 ERA. He is 2-1 in four career starts against the Cubs.

The Pirates will benefit from missing Yu Darvish's turn in the rotation and the Cubs' offense had an uneven first week, but the Cubs possess one of the best lineups in the National League with three capable starting pitchers and a deep bullpen.

What Kyrie Irving's injury means to the National Basketball Association
Now he's done for the season, joining Hayward, who has been sidelined since his gruesome ankle injury on opening night. It's simply a test of your perseverance and Will, to be present, even in the wake of what's going on.

Tyler Chatwood (0-1, 1.50 ERA) will make his second start of the season and his Wrigley Field debut for the Cubs.

The Pirates are just 1-7 in Nova's last eight starts and are 5-16 in his last 21 road outings. When it became clear the weather was going to cause trouble, the game was pushed back one hour to handle the effects of the inclement weather as ground crews kicked into gear trying to get the field and stadium cleared of snow. Rizzo was to have been re-evaluated Tuesday morning before the Cubs determined it best to place him on the DL. It took three of four against Cincinnati in its previous series. I think the first game we played 4 2/3 (innings) and ended up having that one canceled.

But without the benefit of an off-day Tuesday, Pittsburgh will take the field for 13 straight days and 26 of the next 27.

"On the way out I had no idea if I was going to Cub Convention or Opening Day", Maddon said.
