3/5 Lineup vs. D-Backs

Starlin Castro, who hit a triple on Thursday in the Cubs’ 9-3 win over the A’s, will start at shortstop and leadoff Friday against the Diamondbacks. The lineup will feature three of the Cubs’ first-round picks: Tyler Colvin (2006), Brett Jackson (2009) and Josh Vitters (2007). It’ll be:

SS Starlin Castro

2B Jeff Baker

LF Tylver Colvin

1B Kevin Millar

RF Brad Snyder

3B Josh Vitters

CF Brett Jackson

C Koyie Hill

P Carlos Zambrano

— Carrie Muskat


It’s nice to have some names in the B line-up to get excited about for once.

Hey Carrie, so you know what year and round Brad Snyder was chosen? He seems to better year after year but doesn’t seem to come close to making the team. Even Colvin came up for a cup of coffee last year, is this the last year before we lose Snyder to free agency or the rule five draft?
