So long, home field advantage

The Astros tried desperately to play this weekend's series against the Cubs at home in Houston. The post-season is on the line, and they did not want to give up home field advantage. But the Cubs didn't want to get stuck in Houston during a hurricane, and there was also concern about the fans, who should be preparing for the storm, not attending a baseball game. The teams' schedules don't permit the games to be postponed.

Though Ike was not as bad as feared, it left Houston in no shape to host sports events. Many buildings are damaged, millions of people have no electricity, and the water supply is suspect. So the Astros will play the Cubs in Milwaukee instead. The Houston Texans game is being postponed to November.
