7/26 Cubs lineup

The Cubs begin the post-Alfonso Soriano era on Friday, opening a three-game series in San Francisco against the Giants. Junior Lake is starting in left and Nate Schierholtz will return to face his former team, batting fourth. Schierholtz has a career .269 average at AT&T Park. It’ll be Edwin Jackson (6-11, 5.03 ERA) against Matt Cain (6-6, 5.00 ERA). Here’s the lineup:

DeJesus CF
Lake LF
Rizzo 1B
Schierholtz RF
Castro SS
Valbuena 3B
Barney 2B
Castillo C
E. Jackson P

The commentator on the Yankees broadcast just said Edwin Jackson takes more time between pitches than almost any other major league hurler. The subject came up because tonight`s Rays hurler is awfully slow as well. Name is Hellickson. I do not like when pitchers are too deliberate like Jackson.The defenders become bored and are not as alert as one would like. Perhaps that is a factor in why Jackson has sucked in so many starts this season.
