8/26 Cubs lineup

Nate Schierholtz is apparently OK after tweaking his back on Sunday and he’s going to play Monday. And, Anthony Rizzo is back at No. 3 in the lineup after going 7-for-24 in the second spot. The Dodgers swept the series at Wrigley earlier this month. Here’s the lineup:

Castro SS
Lake CF
Rizzo 1B
Schierholtz RF
Bogusevic LF
Murphy 3B
Castillo C
Barney 2B
Arrieta P


Different lineup, Rizzo at 3. Says he feels better there – okay, let’s bat ’em in Rizzo! :)). We need a win!! Glad Schierholtz is okay. He took quite a beating last night. Never saw a play like that before! GO CUBBIES!

Schierholtz tweaked his back? I thought he got his noggin tweaked on that throw to home! Glad he is okay, though.

Both! Tweaked and hit on the head! He was lucky to turn his face just in time.

All the broadcasters including Vince Scully get it wrong. Barney’s grandfather was Japanese, his grandmother is Korean – not the other way around. Yes, his father and brother are dentists: ergo he chews sugar free gum. :))

Should have sold those brownies instead of eating them. Sounds like you could make a fortune, because you sound very HIGH!!!!!!

Well I guess Vince Scully is higher than I am. He is calling Wellington Castillo Wellington Castro. Maybe I’ll send him some brownies!

why are you posting the i-cubs lineup? oh, wait…

Well Dale is back to being Dale. Got excited last day when he finally manned-up and pulled Castro out. But after Castro whined about batting 8th the next day, and in the middle of a 1-for-27 stretch, “skip” puts him in the leadoff spot. Unbelievable. Going into last night’s game he was 4 for his last 46, and started last night 0-4. So Dale’s batting a guy who is 4 for his last 50 in the lead off spot, and he’s wonders why the team struggles to score runs.

Sounds like alot of tension in that clubhouse. Who is different on the coaching staff from last year?
