Joe Maddon is angry with MLB over Cubs weather-impacted schedule

A stretch of bad weather has put the Chicago Cubs in a difficult position schedule wise, and manager Joe Maddon is not pleased with how Major League Baseball is handling the situation.

After taking on the Milwaukee Brewers in a critical division game Wednesday night at Wrigley Field, Maddon’s Cubs will grab their packed overnight bags for a quick trip to Washington D.C. for a makeup game against the Nationals.

The rescheduled game means the Cubs will have a stretch of 30 consecutive days in which they’re required to report to the ballpark for a scheduled game. According to Maddon, that’s a workload the league should try to avoid putting on the players, regardless of the unique and unexpected circumstances.

After this press conference, Maddon immediately started yelling at Lake Michigan, ordering it to part itself so that he could walk to Benton Harbor.

Paul Sullivan - MLB Needs to Change Cubs-Nats Venue for Thurday’s Game

Switching it to a day game in Chicago, or even in Milwaukee if the Nationals are worried about giving the Cubs home-field advantage, makes much more sense. It’s not unprecedented, and it’s obviously doable.

Clearly, rational minds will arrive at a rapid, amicable solution that will please all involved.
