9/26 Cubs lineup

It’s Kids Day for the Cubs as Mike Quade starts young players, although he’s keeping Carlos Pena in the mix. Pena has a chance at 30 homers this season, and with a lefty in the season finale, Monday and Tuesday may be his best chances. Starlin Castro is batting third — a preview of things to come? Steve Clevenger will be making his Major League debut, catching Casey Coleman. Here’s the lineup:

CF Campana

2B Barney

SS Castro

1B Pena

LF LaHair

C Clevenger

3B LeMahieu

RF Colvin

P Coleman

— Carrie Muskat


Wow, a Colvin sighting! And is that Camapana actually leading off? Where he can best utilize his speed, his number one asset? Quade probably did not make this lineup. Still, LaHair does not play at first, where he needs to be so we can guage him for the future.

Quade’s crush on Pena reminds me of Dusty playing Perez over the younger, better Theriot….only this situation is more like a romance novel. Gee, what can we Cubs fans hope happens first….Pena’s AWESOME, play-off clinching 30th homerun or Quade getting fired?
