Chicago Cubs

turner fieldThe Cubs head down to Atlanta to take on the Braves, and we’ll get our first regular season look at Scott Feldman. He had an exceedingly rough Spring, though he was always the first to caution that the results really weren’t reflective of how he felt he was throwing. We’ll see tonight. I still like Feldman’s upside.

We’ll get to see the massive platoon lineup again tonight, as the Cubs face lefty Mike Minor. It didn’t work last time, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a good long-term idea, given the roster.

For those of you who don’t have CSN+ or, you can catch tonight’s game on MLB Network.
