7/21 Cubs lineup

The scouts who came to watch Ryan Dempster most likely will be in the crowd on Saturday to see Matt Garza make his start against the Cardinals. Garza is another option for playoff-contending teams looking to improve their rotation before the July 31 Trade Deadline. He has a 2.12 ERA in seven home starts compared to a 5.67 ERA in 10 road outings. Among pitchers who qualify for the ERA title this season, Garza’s 3.55 difference between his home and road ERAs is sixth-highest in the Majors. The Astros’ Bud Norris leads all pitchers with a 5.19 difference between his home ERA (2.27) and his road ERA (7.46). Let’s see if Garza can turn that around Saturday night at Busch Stadium. First pitch is scheduled for 6:15 p.m. CT. Here’s the lineup:

DeJesus CF

Castro SS

Rizzo 1B

Soriano LF

LaHair RF

Soto C

Barney 2B

Valbuena 3B

Garza P

I really hope they dont trade Garza, he’s one of my favorites…but I hope he helps us get a win!(:

lol I’m gonna call this one. Garza and Soriano to Detroit for Delmon Young and a couple prospects, one of them a pitcher.

I hope they trade Soriano…but I dont know about Garza…

Hey Petrey, if you’re reading this, I went on the Rays site, and asked them how they feel about Fuld. There were only 3 responses, but you may find them interesting. One of them reminded me that we also sent them Hak Ju Lee. Here’s the link: http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/gameday/index.jsp?gid=2012_07_20_seamlb_tbamlb_1&mode=recap&c_id=tb&forwardUrl=http%3A%2F%2Fmlb.mlb.com%2Fmlb%2Fgameday%2Findex.jsp%3Fgid%3D2012_07_20_seamlb_tbamlb_1%26mode%3Drecap%26c_id%3Dtb&flowId=registration.dynaindex#disqus_thread My screen name for mlb.com is Cubfan67, and of course, the responses are below my question. Happy reading!

Why is Soto not further down? He continues to kill us there. Please explain.
