5/3 Cubs lineup

It’s cold and damp at Wrigley Field, but the Cubs will try to play the Reds Friday. Carlos Villanueva gets the start. Here’s the lineup:

DeJesus CF
Castro SS
Rizzo 1B
Soriano LF
Schierholtz RF
Castillo C
Valbuena 3B
Barney 2B
Villanueva P


Some losses are forgettable, as was case of the blowout Tues. But this game yesterday was painful. We gave away that one. Good teams don’t do that. We’ll know when our team is competitive when it develops the intestinal fortitude to secure leads and close games out, as was our opportunity yesterday, and we blew it.

Borbon and Castillo blew it!

Yeah, not soon after a great catch by Borbon….he pulls a Soriano. Oh wait, he actually hustled in on a shallow pop up and tried to make a catch instead of conceding a base hit. My bad.
