Remember that piece I wrote earlier today about how Starlin Castro and Anthony Rizzo are both in terrible terrible slumps? The one where Dale dropped Castro to 8th and talked about how he didn’t deserve to hit any higher than that? Let’s take a look at tonight’s Chicago Cubs lineup, shall we?
Starlin Castro (yes, THAT Starlin Castro)
Anthony Rizzo (yep, the very same)
Whether or not you agree with the lineup, you have to admit that, just YESTERDAY, Dale gave quite a soliloquy on why Castro didn’t deserve to hit above 8th. In other news. I fucking quit trying to figure out what’s going on with this team.
Jake Arrieta v. Russ Ohlendorf. First pitch at 7:05 pm CT on WGN.
