Spring Training Game 2: Rangers vs. Cubs

In Game Threads by myles17 Comments

After yesterday's exciting 2-1 defeat to the Brewers, the Cubs dust themselves off, assemble (mostly) a big-league caliber lineup, and host the Texas Rangers.

Listen on 670 the Score and watch nowhere (it isn't on mlb.tv).


Almora Jr. CF
Chris Brian 3B
Rizzo 1B
Contreras C
Heyward RF
Russell SS
Baez 2B
Gimenez DH (have to have a bat like Chris Gimenez in the lineup anyway you can)
Bourjos LF (Hope he'll take a AAA assignment with the understanding that he's the first outfielder up in case of injury)

SP: Eddie Butler

DeShields (are down!) CF
Odor DH
Profar 3B
Mazara RF
Guzman 1B
Robinson LF
Nicholas C
Lopes 3B
Alberto Alberto/Where you been so long? SS

SP: Clayton Blackburn (almos the definition of quad-A)

What to look for

It'd be easy to say "I'm looking to see if Jason Heyward isn't horrible" but it's spring training, so I don't take any results like that seriously. Would like to see everyone get out of this healthy, and I'd like to see if Eddie Butler can keep a goddamn ball down.

    I’d appreciate it if you did the rest of the Spring Training line ups with fake names like Chris Brian, Tony Razzo, Jeff Bezos (Javy), Madison Tussles, Smiles Schwarburst

    I saw someone in a Vedder jersey who was clearly not Eddie Vedder. Not sure if this tops the Bonifacio jersey that I saw last year.

    I am also (dying laughing) at all the Arizonans freezing in this “brutal” weather (direct quote). It’s 60 degrees.
