4/3 Cubs lineup

The Cubs play game No. 2 of 162 on Wednesday night at PNC Park. Edwin Jackson will make his Cubs debut and face Pirates lefty Wandy Rodriguez. The game will be broadcast on WGN Radio and Comcast Sports Net TV. Here’s the lineup:

Sappelt CF
Castro SS
Rizzo 1B
Soriano LF
Hairston RF
Castillo C
Lillibridge 3B
Gonzalez 2B
Jackson P

— Carrie Muskat


WOW! Looks like a platoon year? Why not try it? Lillibridge for Valbuena. Hairston for Sherholtz. Gonzalez for Lillibridge, who was in for Barney. Sappelt for Dejesus. One LH hitter in the Line Up versus Wandy, I like it.

I’m good with everything but sitting DeJesus (especially after his spring). I have a feeling he won’t be platooned for the entire year. I’m betting Sveum just wants to empty the bench, and get everyone some early action.

Mamma mia, what would your batting order be against a tough LH pitcher?
