Pre-Gamin’: A’s at Cubs (1:20 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

The Cubs took a beating last night, but still have a chance to win the series this afternoon.

Fortunately, they have a pretty good offensive lineup out there this afternoon. Unfortunatly, that means – in this particular case – the defense is sub-optimal (Castellanos in RF, Schwarber in LF, Happ at 2B, Caratini behind the Plate, and Heyward in CF as opposed to RF is all less than ideal).

And to make matters worse, the A’s have been killing left-handed pitching all-season (including Jon Lester last night). So good luck, Jose. Let’s hope this offense picks you up right away.
