Pre-Gamin’: Cubs at Diamondbacks (3:10 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

Not enough of these Spring Training games are televised – indeed, today’s tilt against the D-Backs is not – though I suppose it’ll be regular-season time soon enough. I guess radio will have to suffice.

As for the game, itself, Kyle Hendricks is starting for the Cubs, and he will, like Cole Hamels before him, bat for himself for the first time this Spring. Among the notable defensive alignments, David Bote is starting at second base and Ben Zobrist is out in left field. This looks like a pretty typical lineup you might see this summer – perhaps against the sort of lefties that don’t suit Kyle Schwarber best – and I like the look of it.

Let’s go Cubs … and can we start the season yet?
