7/9 Cubs lineup

All-Star Travis Wood gets the start Tuesday against the Angels in an Interleague game at Wrigley Field. The Cubs are 12-6 against the American League this season, and split a series against the Angels in early June in Anaheim. Here’s the lineup:

Borbon CF
Castro SS
Rizzo 1B
Soriano LF
Valbuena 3B
Navarro C
Schierholtz RF
Barney 2B
T.Wood P


All right then. Too many fattening desserts to celebrate our wins lately SOOO — with today’s win we will feast on home grown Walla Walla onions roasted and topped with bacon and feta cheese on a bed of lettuce and tomatoes! We are on a winning streak – don’t stop now you great guys! Go Cubbies!

No Sappelt jasper, wouldn’t you have “rewarded” his great night last night with a follow up game? I would have considering it’s not THAT difficult for a righty to hit a righty but Borbon gets the nod because he is a lefty? Well, maybe it will be Borbon’s turn for a 4 hit night? We can hope, right? A little too much emphasis on the lefty/righty thing from Sveum this year, a little at least.

joey Borbon has had passed success. You know as well as I that at bats are needed to keep your timing. Borbon has not had that, Sappelt just coming up from the minors was getting regular At Bats.
I give Sveum credit fot taking notice of those 3 walks last night and batting Borbon leadoff. Also, I would be doing the righty lefty thing with this team also. They are just not that good.

Probably won’t be posting anymore on this beloved site. Have been told by Jasper that no one wants to hear about cats, food or med problems, etc. Duly noted and I apologize to any and all who have suffered my inane comments and asides. It is hard for me not to digress from Cub’s stats only, etc. as I have thought we were all connected in more than just a “facts only” way. My bad. Eamus Catuli

Actually if you read it, it was an apolgy for going off CUB topc on the conversation.
