Chicago Cubs brace for cold, Pittsburgh Pirates in home opener

Preview: Brewers vs. Cubs

BC-BBN-Pirates-Cubs Ppd, 5th Ld-Writethru, 513Cubs postpone home opener a day because of snowAP Photo CXC101, CXC106, CXC109, CXC104, CXC108, ILCHT105, ILCHT104, ILCHT102, ILCHT103, ILCHT101Eds: Fixes the ellipsis in the last paragraph. The Pirates are off to a hot start offensively, averaging seven runs per game, and the over is 5-1 in their last six games overall.

The ever-optimistic Cubs at first said the scheduled 1:20 p.m. game time would be moved back an hour so the grounds crew could clear and prepare the field. There wasn't quite as much snow on the South Side, and the series against Tampa Bay is the only scheduled trip to Chicago for the Rays, so rescheduling their game would have been more hard.

Comcast entered into a new, multi-year technology and marketing partnership with baseball organisation Chicago Cubs that will provide WiFi, video and voice services at Wrigley Field and the team's surrounding properties, including the Cubs' new front office at 1101 W. Waveland.

Chicago is the last major league team to hold its home opener. My rookie year (with Seattle), we went into Cleveland and had four games snowed out.

The Cubs (5-4) and Pirates (7-2) will push their scheduled starters back a day.

Meanwhile, Tyler Chatwood will make his second start of the season and his Wrigley Field debut for the Cubs on Monday. They still haven't played at home.

The Cubs will be without All-Star first baseman Anthony Rizzo, who was placed on the 10-day disabled list on Monday. Josh Harrison is 0 for 5 against Chatwood, while Gregory Polanco is 2 for 6, and David Freese is 3 for 9.

"I think all of us are ready to get to Miami", he said. He allowed just one earned run, four hits and six walks in six innings in his first start against Cincinnati. "When you are at the 3, 3½ level. they made the right call".
