Yep don’t need a bone headed play in LF in this stadium to cost us the game. DH all the way

Same.  No reason to push it with that spacious OF.

If he could play LF that would be HUGE! Leave Engel in RF and McCann at DH

Nah, I don't risk Eloy in the field.  Mazara has hit Fiers well in the past and isn't exactly a horrible defender.  

Eloy DH

McCann Bench (dude is struggling, badly)

Engel LF

Mazara RF

I don't want a gimpy Eloy in LF. Might trip and blow his back out. McCann isn't hitting right now anyway. Id be okay with starting Engel in LF and Mazara in RF.

The Cubs don't have the talents of the Sodfather on their side.

Actually, it was Bossard that rebuild the field at Wrigley some years back.  They dug it out and he re-built it from the bottom up for drainage and the like.

I'd rather Eloy DH in every meaningful game. Also, agree with Laurence Holmes' assessment of preferring Yolmer over Madrigal for defense.

I don't love dropping Moncada from 2 and slowing down the top of the order, but at least Abreu is hitting 3rd with a legit bat offering protection.

Eloy needs protection behind him. Grandal is fine at 2 if he uses his elite eye.

I think you are correct. They probably are afraid every series can be over today, so they saw one where they could try to make some sort of case for cancelling. I live 3 miles south of Wrigley Field. It is sunny right now.

Isn't NBA game 2 tomorrow I would thin they want all eyes on that.

I have a lot more faith in McCann than Encarnacion, even though James has been struggling. EE should absolutely NOT be in the lineup today. I’d also go with Mazara over Leury, as crazy as that sounds.

What is EE’s history with Fiers?
