Pre-Gamin’: Cubs v. Cardinals (7:15 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, etc. (Dempster Still Listed as Starting)

Pre-Gamin'
ADVERTISEMENT

Because of the unusual circumstances of tonight’s game – is Ryan Dempster going to start, is he not? – and because the family and I are going to be on the road, driving tonight, I’m throwing up the Pre-Gamin’ a lot earlier than usual. Fear not: I’ll be following things closely, and will alert you as soon as something breaks with respect to Dempster’s start (or a trade). So don’t take his inclusion here as a certainty that he’ll actually be starting – but he’s still scheduled to start as of this moment.

Game Info

Chicago Cubs (38-53) at St. Louis Cardinals (47-45), 7:15pm CT on WGN.
