Pre-Gamin’: Cubs v. Giants – Lineup, Broadcast Info, etc.


The 5-4 Chicago Cubs head off to Scottsdale Stadium to take on the San Francisco Giants, who will probably have Buster Posey behind the plate. His name is Gerald, but he goes by Buster. He chooses to go by Buster. Say it a few times. Buster. He wants to be called Buster.


The game is at 3:05 CT, and will be on the radio on We’ll also do the Game Thread thing over at the Message Board.

Chris Volstad gets his second Spring start, hoping that it will be as successful as his first.

Today’s Cubs lineup features Joe Mather getting a start at third base, which I sense is not altogether without meaning – versatility would be the key to him pulling off an upset, and landing a roster spot:

1. David DeJesus, RF

2. Darwin Barney, 2B

3. Starlin Castro, SS

4. Alfonso Soriano, LF

5. Bryan LaHair, 1B

6. Joe Mather, 3B

7. Steve Clevenger, C

8. Dave Sappelt, CF

9. Chris Volstad, P
