Day Game Adjustments

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The Cubs and Miami Marlins were playing in sunshine Thursday, a day game after two night games at Wrigley Field.
Day games still are the majority on the North Side, something manager Dale Sveum admitted took some getting used to.
``I can't lie,'' he said Thursday. ``It was difficult getting up those first few months when we had a lot of day games [even on the road.] You're use to going to bed at 2 or 3 a.m. [after night games.] It takes time for your body to adapt.
``We've been fortunate the last few months to have more night games.
``It is something, no doubt, you have to get used to. Those first six weeks, I had never played that many day games.''
New players who come to the Cubs have talked in the past of making the same kind of adjustment, as well as adjusting to dramatic weather changes that can occur in Chicago, with cold Aprils and Mays and extremes of heat and cold in the summers.
The Cubs record in day games going into Thursday is 21-25 overall and 16-11 at home.
