September 12, 2012 – Cubs Lineup vs Astros

Let’s hope this one comes in under four hours tonight, that’s all I ask.  The last two nights have been terrible, I guess the Astros figure the longer the game goes the better chance they have to win.  Travis Wood takes the ball tonight and will be backed by a very different lineup as Anthony Rizzo is out of the lineup after last nights collision.  From all accounts he is okay, just sore and in need of a day off.

1. Mather – CF
2. Barney – 2B
3. Castro – SS
4. Soriano – LF
5. Castillo – C
6. Vitters – 3B
7. Sappelt – RF
8. Recker – C
9. Wood

Thanks for reading, go Cubs!

August 29, 2012 – Cubs Lineup vs Brewers / No Rizzo

I’m not even going to mention strikeouts tonight, that right there wasn’t a mention.  The Cubs are tired of seeing the Brewers, can’t really blame them as they have lost 12 of 15 meetings this year.  Jeff Samardzija will try to change the Cubs fortunes tonight against Mike Fiers who has emerged as a top of the rotation guy for the Brewers this year.  No Rizzo tonight, here is how the Cubs will line up.

1. DeJesus – RF
2. Valbuena – 3B
3. Castro – SS
4. Soriano – LF
5. LaHair – 1B
6. Castillo – C
7. Jackson – CF
8. Barney – 2B
9. Samardzija – P
