STLtoday - Cubs-Astros series delayed

STLtoday - Cubs-Astros series delayed: "Just as Chicago Cubs fans were readying themselves to celebrate a second consecutive division title, the Cubs brought the Milwaukee Brewers and even a couple of other clubs back into the fold by losing eight of nine games.

And now, as the magic number has shrunk a little more and the end is in sight, another roadblock was tossed in their way Thursday."

... Imagine the Cubs playing in Busch Stadium, but not against the Cardinals. That probably won't happen, but it could if the case would come up that MLB couldn't find a neutral site for the Astros/Cubs series due to Hurricane Ike's potential landfall in the Houston area.

So far, the best scenario for these clubs puts them (in Houston, of course, if everything is okay) in Atlanta, as the Braves will not be returning from their current road trip until Tuesday.
