Cubs postpone home opener vs. Pirates due to snow

Chicago Cubs fans will have to wait until Tuesday for the home opener game against the Pittsburgh Pirates after the game was postponed due to snow, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Will postponement allow Anthony Rizzo chance to play in Cubs' home opener? The Cubs won last year's seasons series 10-9.

But the next signs that there would be no baseball came when a group of Cubs players, led by relief pitcher Carl Edwards Jr., started throwing snowballs instead of baseballs.

Leading the way in hitting for the Cubs coming into this week was Kris Bryant with 12 hits, six RBI, two homers and five runs.

Cubs manager Joe Maddon told reporters he would rather sit Rizzo on Monday with an off day coming Tuesday than to make matters worse.

Milwaukee falls back to.500 on the season at 5-5. Chatwood has shut down the Pirates in his two career starts, conceding only two runs in 12 innings. In the Sunday finale, the Cubs took a win 3-0. The 25-year old second baseman is only hitting.154 on the season with zero homers, however he has driven in four runs. The Cubs are now averaging 4.50 runs per game, ranking them 15th in the Majors.

However, the team's batting average of.223 is fourth from the bottom.

Unless it's announced otherwise, Ivan Nova and Tyler Chatwood could be moved back a day to start on Tuesday.

I am taking the Cubs in this one. Chatwood allowed one earned run, four hits and six walks in six innings in his first start against Cincinnati while striking out four.

Nova was hit hard in his latest start, and the Pirates are swinging the bats well.
