9/29 Cubs lineup

One day after his error-less streak ended, Darwin Barney was not in the Cubs starting lineup Saturday for Game 2 against the Diamondbacks at Chase Field. Here’s the lineup:

DeJesus RF

Valbuena 2B

Rizzo 1B

Soriano LF

Castro SS

Castillo C

Jackson CF

Vitters 3B

Germano P

— Carrie Muskat


What happened to Barney!? Why isn’t he in the line up!?😮

I think Sveum probably wanted to give him a break. Probably not a bad idea especially with the Diamondback announcers being disrespectful of him and, it seems, of all the Cubs players. I imagine they all just want to get these stupid games overwith and get back to Chicago. I have NEVER heard our announcers disrespect another team’s players and I appreciate their good sportsmanship in announcing the games. I am very sure that Barney is fine, Isabel.

Barney is fine. Sveum just decided it was a good time to give him a breather now that the streak is over.
