Pre-Gamin’: Cubs at Rangers (2:05 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

First of all, happy Jake Day! It’s bad luck not to wish someone a happy Jake Day, so we had to get that out of the way. Second of all, in case you missed it, the Cubs completed a series of roster moves this afternoon, effectively setting up the expected Opening Day roster (with the exception of the backup catcher, which isn’t so much a competition, as it is a race to get healthy).

In any case, take a look here for those details.

Other than that, just enjoy today’s game. There are only two spring training matchups left (including today), and then the regular season starts on Thursday (Kyle Hendricks vs. the Pittsburgh Pirates at Wrigley Field). You can watch this game on MLB Network, Marquee, and MLB.TV (it’s the free game of the day). Go Cubs.
