Pre-Gamin’: Rockies at Cubs (3:05 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

For the second straight day, the Cubs are rolling with a relatively “regular” looking lineup, featuring Ben Zobrist at the top. Zobrist is obviously not going to start everyday this season, but I’m willing to bet he leads off when he does.

It’s entirely possible, in fact, that we could see two of the other second basemen – Ian Happ and Daniel Descalso – lead off when they’re in there at that spot, as well. That sort of arrangement would allow the meat of the lineup to stick in their usual spots no matter who steps in next to Javy Baez up the middle.

Jose Quintana is starting for the Cubs today and will bat for himself. We’re getting closer. Go Cubs.
