Back in the warmer weather (relatively speaking) and with the wind projected to blow out, Jorge Soler gets another crack at the starting lineup for the Cubs today in Game Three of the NLCS:

The lineup is otherwise unchanged from recent games, save for the fact that Javy Baez slides down into the nine-spot to accommodate the pitcher batting eighth, as he does when not expected to go as deep as Jake Arrieta and Jon Lester.

Hopefully the Cubs can force Jacob deGrom to throw a lot of pitches early, and maybe put a few up in the breeze to give Kyle Hendricks an early lead. The Cubs have trailed early in each of the first two games in the series. It would be nice to see that change tonight.

Keep Reading BN ...
