cubs park shoesHow fun. The White Sox come to play the Cubs with Jeff Samardzija on the mound, where they’ll face Jason Hammel. Last Summer, the two were dealt by the Cubs, together, to the A’s. Each returned to Chicago in the offseason, and now they face each other.

Sure, it’s just a Spring Training game, but it doesn’t get more storyline-y than that.

The game is on both CSN (Cubs) and WGN-9 (White Sox) today, so you’ll have your pick of channels. And, if you’re not getting those, you can always watch instead on

The Cubs lineup:

  1. Dexter Fowler, CF
  2. Chris Coghlan, LF
  3. Jorge Soler, RF
  4. Anthony Rizzo, 1B
  5. Starlin Castro, SS
  6. Arismendy Alcantara, 3B
  7. Miguel Montero, C
  8. Jason Hammel, P
  9. Tommy La Stella, 2B

We’re starting to see some consistencies in the lineup, though I’m still not ready to bet on how I think guys’ll be ordered for Game One (or whether Game Two will even look remotely like Game One).
