OK, so yeah it’s going to rain at some point (maybe) Thursday in Chicago, but whatever rain falls should clear out pretty fast by 3 p.m. or so. However, MLB has decided to postpone Game 2 of the Cubs vs. Marlins series at Wrigley Field because of the weather.
Game 2 has been re-scheduled for 1 p.m. on Friday.
Today's Cubs game has been cancelled, @670TheScore has learned. It's 100% weather-related.

Again, it might rain, but it should go away by about 3 p.m.

The only thing that makes sense is that MLB doesn’t want the players just sitting around if there is some delay today because of rain and I guess it’s better than this happening to the Cubs with Yu Darvish starting Game 2 for the Cubs.
I will say, nothing would be worse for the Cubs than starting a game today, hitting an hour plus rain delay, and losing Darvish after like 2 innings.

So, Game 2 now on Friday and hopefully a Game 3 Saturday.
There’s a chance Friday’s game will be at night.
MLB releases official word of today's Cubs-Marlins game being postponed. It'll be 1:08 central tomorrow unless it's the only game of the day, then it will be at 6:08.
