Pre-Gamin'

wrigley field from right bleachersThe first thing you want to know: yes, Starlin Castro is in the lineup today after yesterday’s mid-game benching. I tend to think that’s fine. All you can do at this point is “send messages,” and yanking a guy mid-game sends a much louder message than giving him a game off the next day.

Adam Wainwright starts for the Cardinals, who now believe the Cubs are worthy of facing their ace. He gets Edwin Jackson on the other side.

Game Info

St. Louis Cardinals (70-52) at Chicago Cubs (53-69), 1:20 CT on WGN.
