Pre-Gamin’: Cubs v. Rockies – Lineup, Broadcast Info, Etc.


Today the Cubs head out to Salt River Field to take on the Rockies. Jeff Samardzija gets the start, and he’s now got the look of the Cubs’ number three starter (based both on following Ryan Dempster and Matt Garza this week, and also on Dale Sveum’s recent comment that Paul Maholm would be serving as the fifth starter).

The game is at 3:10 CT and audio will be available on

The lineup is very interesting at the top, especially who’s slotting into the two-hole:

1. David DeJesus, RF

2. Ian Stewart, 3B

3. Starlin Castro, SS

4. Bryan LaHair, 1B

5. Geovany Soto, C

6. Marlon Byrd, CF

7. Reed Johnson, LF

8. Darwin Barney, 2B

9. Jeff Samardzija, P
