The Chicago Cubs postponed Friday afternoon's game with the first-place Milwaukee Brewers as the forecast had heavy rains off and on in the Chicago area. However, the weather turned out to be decent and the Brewers had a field day talking to the media about it.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell took a jab at the Cubs for canceling a game that eventually had some sunshine rays at Wrigley Field.

"It's the first time for us that we've had players treated for sunburn after a rainout," Counsell joked.

Counsel was asked why he thought the game was postponed on Saturday.

"They know what’s going on, so the theory should come from them."

Brewers general manager David Stearns had the following take on the postponement by the Cubs which claimed it is hard to predict Chicago weather.

"All the more reason to wait and see what it does," Stearns said. Stearns had already talked to the Cubs about postponing the game so early on Saturday after his team had a totally different weather forecast.

"If there were other reasons the game was called, that’s something that major league baseball should look into," Stearns said strongly.

All of these comments come a few weeks after Cubs pitching coach Chris Bosio hinted that Brewers slugger Eric Thames might be taking PEDs because of his hot start.

Sunday's game at 1:20 CDT should be a fun one as the Brewers are trying to stay in first place while the Cubs hope to continue to get back on track in the National League Central division.
