5/1 May Day lineup & rotation

Marlon Byrd is starting in center for the Cubs Saturday in Game 3 of this four-game series against the D-Backs. Here’s the lineup:

SS Theriot

RF Fukudome

1B Lee

CF Byrd

3B Ramirez

LF Soriano

2B Fontenot

C Soto

P Silva

Carlos Silva’s right wrist is still swollen but he is starting on Saturday. He will be given an extra day before his next start and the Cubs rotation for the upcoming road trip, starting Tuesday, will be Ryan Dempster, Ted Lilly, Randy Wells, Tom Gorzelanny and Silva.

I like this lineup a lot…at least until Rami starts hitting again. It takes pressure off of him and gives Byrd a chance for some more RBIs. Lee also appears to be closer to being back than Rami. He hasn’t had the power, but he has been hitting the ball hard a lot and not striking out often.
