Updated 5:43pm C.T. - Ken Rosenthal reported that Jim Hendry has told his team to report to Wrigley on Sunday with their bags packed and ready to get on a plane. According to Rosenthal, the Astros are adamantly opposed to the games being played at Miller Park because it would be turned into home games for the Cubs.
While thoughts and prayers remain with those being directly affected by Hurricane Ike, the Major League Baseball schedule is being affected and not only the first two games of Cubs-Astros series in Houston this weekend. There are six double headers scheduled for Saturday for the first time since 1974 and one on Sunday in Philadelphia between the Brewers and Phillies.
The latest on the Cubs is the scheduled workout for today at Wrigley has been changed to a meeting with all of the rain in the Chicago area. Players have been instructed to report to the park at 2:30pm C.T. with their bags packed as they await word from the MLB front offices of where and when they will play their next ballgame.
