Lineup Card: Game 2 @ Chicago

Rockies Lineup

  • CF Gonzalez
  • LF Smith
  • RF Hawpe
  • SS Tulowitzki 
  • 1B Helton
  • C  Olivo
  • 3B Stewart
  • 2B Barmes
  • P   Chacin
After several unexplainable lineup changes while the offense was doing fine, Tracy elects to stick with the same lineup three straight days while it's struggling.  I'm NOT complaining.  I like the consistency.  I just don't understand the logic sometimes.  

Another note.  Chacin's two great starts came with Paul Phillips.  His last start was with Olivo and he wasn't so good.  Is there something to the chemistry Chacin and Phillips built in AAA this April?  Who knows.  Hopefully he'll bounce back tonight so I don't have to think about such useless things.  

Cubs Lineup
  • RF Fukudome
  • 2B Theriot
  • 1B Lee
  • 3B Ramirez
  • CF Byrd
  • LF Colvin
  • C   Soto
  • SS Castro
  • P   Silva
Last night was stone cold proof of Aramis Ramirez being a Rockie killer.  Struggles or no struggles, he's going to collect a back-breaking hit.
