IIRC the last two years has featured a Bleacher Nation contest about guessing the opening day lineup correctly. It may have been on Facebook, but I can't remember. I didn't win last year, but I did Vow revenge! So is this gonna happen ?

Sure, let's do it:

DeJesus - CF
Castro - SS
Rizzo - 1B
Soriano - LF
Hairston - RF
Valbuena - 3B
Castillo - C
Barney - 2B
Samardjiza - P

I will get bit in the ass when Dale slots Barney at 2, moves Castro to 5 and slides everyone down.

Or if we are playing a righty/lefty for Hairston/schierholtz.
The problem is your lineup is exactly how I would set it up too. For the sake of changing it.

Dejesus -RF
Barney -2B
Rizzo-1B
Soriano -SS
Castro -P
Valburna CF
Schierholtz -3B
Castillo -LF
Samardijza- C

Don't forget last year you had to correctly guess the order of the starting rotation as well.

You didn't miss it - the kiddo's arrival necessitated some sacrifices in "extra" type stuff that I did, and that was one thing that got cut, unfortunately. Should be back next year ...

But, yes, guess away!

The Cubs will almost certainly face a RH pitcher in the first game against the Pirates. Sweum likes to alternate L-R hander batters. Hence,

CF DeJesus (L)
SS Castro
1B Rizzo (L)
LF Soriano
RF Schierholtz (L)
C Castillo
3B Valbuena (L)
2B Barney
P Samardzija

this is assuming Burnett gets the opening day nod over Rodriguiez (who is a lefty)

CF - DeJesus
2B - Barney
SS - Castro
1B - Rizzo
LF - Soriano
RF- Schierholz
C - Castillo
3B - Stewart
P - Shark

Rotation

Shark
EJax
Wood
Villanueva
Feldman

Castro and Rizzo will be the All Star representatives. Marmol gets traded to the Tigers. Soriano to the Yankees.
