    Cubs and Astros will play in Milwaukee

    The Houston Astros have agreed to reschedule most of their hurricane-postponed series Sunday and Monday at Milwaukee's Miller Park, despite Houston players' concerns about giving the Cubs a virtual home-field advantage there.

    That seems like a bizarre choice of venues.

    As a Cubs fan, I like the choice of venue, but it does seem like a strange choice.

    Not really a 100% neutral site.

    I like it for our guys, too, but it's not real fair to the Astros.

    Don't feel too sorry for the Astros. I have a feeling there will be just as many people there rooting for the Cubs as there will be rooting against the Cubs (Brewer fans).

    It will be interesting to see the attendance numbers.

    Aren't the 'Stros knocking on the door of the wild card now? They've won 9 of their last 10 and if I was the Brew Crew, I'd be cheering for the Cubbies.

    That could be a good point. Our six game lead at this point just about cinches the division race. Rooting for us would help out with the wild card, which is their best chance now.

    Re: Cubs and Astros will play in Milwaukee

    If the Astros lose, the Brewers can move toward clinching the wild card.
    If the Cubs lose, their fans get to watch the Cubs lose.

    Which scenario do you think most Brewer fans will be cheering for?

    Brewer fans aren't a reasonable or logical sort, so I really don't know what they'll really do.

    As of tonight, Mil leads the wild card by 2 over Phi, and 2.5 over Hou. Hou has won 14 of their last 15. And for some reason Darth Vader is on the mlb.com calendar for 9/16.
