Pre-Gamin’: Reds v. Cubs (1:20 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, etc.

wrigley field from right bleachersOk, Jeff Samardzija. Your turn.

By which I mean your turn to drive in a few runs, because pitching well isn’t going to be enough to win the game. And it would be a very nice win, since the Cubs are quietly on the verge of being swept in a four-game set at home. It doesn’t matter how badly a team is play … that always sucks.

Starlin Castro is back in the two-hole because, well, why not at this point?
