In yesterday’s Tribune, Paul Sullivan offered the following guess at the Chicago Cubs’ opening day lineup:

1. Miles 2B
2. Gathight CF
3. Lee 1B
4. Ramirez 3B
5. Bradley RF
6. Soriano LF
7. Soto C
8. Theriot SS
9. Zambrano SP

Sullivan is obviously making two large assumptions about opening day in the creation of this lineup:

1.) We are facing a lefty; and

2.) Lou Piniella will have developed a paint thinner addiction.

  • DK

    Haha. How’d I miss this?

    • Ace

      Wow – I’d forgotten about this.
