April 2, 2014 — Cubs Lineup/Preview @ Pittsburgh

Game two.

We are getting an early look at what Ricky Renteria might do on a daily basis with the lineup.  The good?  I like sitting Barney and giving Bonifacio a start at second base against the right-handed pitcher.  The bad?  I don’t like that Olt is sitting in game two after an off-day, I think he is the every day third baseman so he should be in there.  I understand the though process, I just want him to play as much as possible.  I also like that Ryan Kalish gets an opportunity tonight, I think a lot of people will be fans of his immediately.

First pitch is at 6:05 PM CST on Comcast SportsNet Plus

1. 2B – Emilio Bonifacio
2. 3B – Luis Valbuena
3. SS – Starlin Castro
4. 1B – Anthony Rizzo
5. RF – Nate Schierholtz
6. CF – Ryan Sweeney
8. LF – Ryan Kalish
9. P – Edwin Jackson

Here’s how the Pirates will line up.

1. LF – Starling Marte
2. RF – Travis Snider
3. CF – Andrew McCutchen
4. 3B – Pedro Alvarez
5. C – Russell Martin
6. 2B – Neil Walker
7. 1B – Travis Ishikawa
