- The Cubs/Astros series look like they're in pretty bad straits with Hurricane Ike. The Cub Reporter passes on an MLB.com report that the series will now move to "neutral" Milwaukee, something Astros infielder Mark Loretta immediately disputed: ""Milwaukee's kind of a home game for them, isn't it?" (It's called "Wrigley North" for a reason.) Another report earlier in the day indicated Atlanta was a possibility also, though it looks like that's fading. The 'Stros appear now to be stuck in Houston, as Houston airports closed at 2 pm Friday.
- Six games were rained out today, all with postseason implications; all six will be made up as doubleheaders tomorrow. The six were Brewers @ Phillies, Braves @ Mets, Cubs @ Astros, Twins @ Orioles, Rays @ Yankees, and Tigers @ White Sox. Since the Cubs and Astros won't play, two of the doubleheaders will be games already scheduled due to postponements already on the docket, marking the first time since August 4, 1974 that 20 games will be scheduled for one day. (Just for historical curiosity, the Angels were involved in two of them and lost both, road games at Kansas City.)
