Try to come up with a better scenario, better theater.
Jake Arrieta, Gerrit Cole, Wild Card Game, rookies and kids, Cubs and October...
This morning I heard Tommy LaStella will start at 3rd, Kris Byrant in left, and Kyle Schwarber in right.
Chris Coghlan sits.
Hey, no matter what the lineup or what happens I will not question Joe Maddon.
We've seen the manager who trots out the same lineup day after day after day based on who has the most experience, and the last playoff game I watched like that the entire infield made an error.
Maddon's been winning with his various combinations, and it's not only been amazing, it's been the most entertaining summer ever.
I cannot wait for this.
ps: I have this weird feeling that Coghlan will have some kind of important role this evening.
