Pre-Gamin’: A’s v. Cubs, Lineups, Broadcast Info, Etc.


Today is the Chicago Cubs’ second Spring Training game, and second against the Oakland A’s. The Cubs are facing a split Oakland squad (as in, they’ve got two games today, so only half the roster will be available to play the Cubs), so at least the chance of victory – to the extent that matters to you – are improved slightly.


The game is at 2:05 CT, and will be available on WGN radio – yes, that means the return of Pat Hughes and Keith Moreland.

Ryan Dempster will get the start for the Cubs, and I’d imagine we’ll see some of the bullpenners we didn’t see yesterday. That won’t include Kerry Wood, however, who’s expected to make his Spring debut later in the week.

The Cubs’ lineup features only a couple of repeats from yesterday’s group of starters:

1. Tony Campana, CF

2. Darwin Barney, 2B

3. Starlin Castro, SS

4. Bryan LaHair, 1B

5. Jeff Baker, RF

6. Reed Johnson, LF

7. Steve Clevenger, C

8. Blake DeWitt, DH

9. Josh Vitters, 3B
