Chicago Cubs Lineup: The Last One

Chicago Cubs

This afternoon, the Chicago Cubs will close the book on their forgettable 2021 season. Here’s the lineup for their last game of the year.

Chicago Cubs Lineup:

1. Rafael Ortega, CF
2. Frank Schwindel, 1B
3. Ian Happ, LF
4. Matt Duffy, 3B
5. Trayce Thompson, RF
6. Sergio Alcántara, SS
7. Trent Giambrone, 2B
8. Erick Castillo, C
9. Alec Mills, P

There’s not too much of note here, other than the fact that the Cubs final lineup of the season is missing each of Willson Contreras, Nico Hoerner, and Nick Madrigal (all out with injuries), three guys who figure to factor into the 2022 roster in a significant way. It’s not really a surprise, and maybe it’s for the best, but their absence just makes it that much tougher to really look forward to next season.

In any case, with the next Cubs draft position already locked down, I’d love to end the year with one final beat down on the Cardinals. Leave ’em with a bad taste in their mouth before they (hopefully) get crushed by the Dodgers in the Wild Card game.

As usual, we’ll have your full Pre-Gamin’ post closer to game time (2:15 CT).
