He gutted it out through Thursday's game, but it was tight again Friday, so he opted to take a seat over the weekend and play it safe.

The Chicago Cubs will host the Pittsburgh Pirates for their home opener today at Wrigley Field after being "snowed out" on Monday.

The Pirates' first real test awaits at Wrigley Field.

Snow blanketed the playing field early in the morning, and odd as it seemed, the sprinklers were turned on to keep the grass warm.

The Cubs enter Monday's home opener having won three of their past four games. He is 2-1 in four career starts against the Cubs.

Their command appeared to be good. "But anytime you're dealing with the back, you never know".

Just really work smart and not just work. "We're disappointed. We wanted to get this home opener underway". We'll see how it goes.

A short time later, it was announced that the game was canceled and moved to Tuesday. "Yeah, you'd rather have better conditions to play in". It got a little sloppy.
