Pre-Gamin’: Cubs v. Marlins (6:10 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, etc.


Well, let’s try this again. The Cubs have lost three straight, and have been outscored in those games 20 to 6. Ouch.

The Cubs bust out the mostly right-handed lineup today against Mark Buehrle, with Reed Johnson leading off. Marlon Byrd and Geovany Soto loom at the bottom of the order. Maybe today’s the day they get rolling.
