The Cubs will be playing a baseball game tonight. We move on not because we’re forgetting Jose Fernandez, but because baseball is supposed to be played. I get the sense that he would have been the first one to tell you.
Chicago Cubs Lineup v. St. Louis Cardinals (Carlos Martinez):
- Dexter Fowler, CF
- Kris Bryant, LF
- Anthony Rizzo, 1B
- Ben Zobrist, 2B
- Addison Russell, SS
- Jason Heyward, RF
- Javy Baez, 3B
- David Ross, C
- Jon Lester, P
The lineup should be pretty familiar to you by this point for Jon Lester starts, as it’s been this crew in this defensive alignment for a while now. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
The left side of the field gets max defense, with Javy Baez holding down third base and Kris Bryant moving out to left field.
Tonight’s game is the final of the season at Wrigley Field.
Your full Pre-Gamin’ will come shortly.
