I've decided to solicit Lollygagger Girl, Kerry, to offer a prize to the commentator who pegs the opening day lineup in Cincinnati this year. So bring it on kids and let us know your opening day batting order with their respective position in the field.
I hope we can accomplish, with the slew of talent we've acquired and the rookies invited to camp, a more fundamentally sound and productive team at the plate and in the field.
We all understand that the baseball world revolves around pitching, so I'd like for you to include your projected starting 5 man rotation as well as who and how many relief pitchers the Cubs break camp with.
I also have a couple of prop bets in case a tie breaker is needed.
1) Will Soriano hit a home run?
2) Will the starter go at least 6 complete innings?
3) If Super Jock is in your lineup, how many hops will his first throw back to the infield have? Opening line is 4.
