And as is often the case when it comes to day baseball at Wrigley Field, the weather will be a big story on Friday afternoon.
Typically, fans and bettors are more concerned with the speed and direction of the Chicago wind, but when it comes to Mets vs. Cubs on Friday afternoon, rain could be a significant factor.
