The Milwaukee Brewers and Chicago Cubs series recently has not failed to provide us with headlines. From the epic dance-off between the two bullpens during a rain delay to now this. Apparently the Brewers/Cubs game the other night was cancelled due to rain. The only problem with this rain-out was the fact that there was no rain. This started to raise all kinds of conspiracies on what was actually the true reason for the game to be cancelled.
Let’s see what Twitter thought about this odd cancellation.
#Brewers manager Craig Counsell on Cubs postponing game Saturday:"First time our players were treated for sunburn after rainout."

So….what reason do the Brewers think the Cubs wanted a rainout? An extra day for Heyward returning from the DL?

Did Kris Bryant get hit twice because the Cubs nefariously forced a rainout yesterday? My inside look:

Shouldn't the Cubs have finagled a rainout by now?

Listening to #cubs radio spending a lot of time trying to justify the Saturday rainout with no rain

A rain delay and the @Cubs win The World Series. A rainout yesterday and The Cubs are killing it today. I think y'all need more rain. :)

This reminds me of the scene from the movie 'Bull Durham' when the team was on a long road trip during the dog days of summer and most desperately needed a rain-out so they could get some rest but there was no rain in sight. Crash to the rescue.
