7/8 Cubs lineup – UPDATED

Welington Castillo was scratched from the lineup because he was ill. Luis Valbuena will be the Cubs’ designated hitter on Monday when they meet the White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field in a makeup game. Starlin Castro is leading off for the third time this season. Here’s the lineup:

Castro SS
Ransom 3B
Rizzo 1B
Soriano LF
Navarro C
Valbuena DH
Barney 2B
Sappelt RF
Borbon CF

Garza P


Boy is this team snake bit with injuries or what? Who would have thought that BOTH Borbon AND Sappelt would SART a game TOGTHER??? Oh well….GO CUBS!!

lol @ joey, I like the line up. Hairston traded, Dejesus, Sweeney, Bogusevic on the DL. Not bad when you can put Sappelt and Borbon out there.

Not bad? You actually LIKE this lineup? I guess…when the opponent is the lowly WhiteSox but it may hard to think of another team that has two of it’s three outfielders batting last in the order. What the hell, maybe Borbon and his .200 ba will thrive vs. the Sox?? Even this lineup has a chance vs. the Sox, as long as we are not facing Sale.

Looking at it like if your OF is on the DL and you can still field Borbon and Sappelt, thats really not bad.

not riddled enough to justify brining up a AA CF for no reason… lol you know i had to do that

Not too bad, Sappelt went 4 for 5 with two RBI’s and Borbon had three walks.
