hohokam-park-signRemember last year when a late-season Cubs-Rockies affair would have generated a great deal of enthusiasm … for losing? Take that, Rockies! Cubs got the number two pick this year!

The Cubs start a mini homestand at HoHoKam today, in a game which will feature Edwin Jackson’s debut with the Cubs. Fun fact from the helpful Cubs media folks: the Cubs and the Rockies are the only teams yet to surrender a Spring home run.

Johermyn Chavez gets a start in the outfield, and although it would be an extreme stretch to see him crack the roster over Dave Sappelt, Brian Bogusevic or Darnell McDonald, he’s certainly getting some looks.

Today’s game is available via audio on MLB.com/Cubs.com, which I’m told is free. But it’s apparently been tricky for some folks to actually hook themselves up with the free audio. I have MLB.tv, so I’m no help. There’s a way to do it, though, and if you’re struggling, I’m sure another helpful BN’er will learn ya.

The lineup:

1. David DeJesus, CF

2. Starlin Castro, SS

3. Anthony Rizzo, 1B

4. Alfonso Soriano, DH

5. Brett Jackson, LF

6. Dioner Navarro, C

7. Brent Lillibridge, 2B

8. Christian Villanueva, 3B

9. Johermyn Chavez, RF
