Cubs NLCS Game 5 lineup: Kyle Schwarber in again vs. Clayton Kershaw

Cubs NLCS Game 5 lineup: Kyle Schwarber in again vs. Clayton Kershaw

Joe's playing his hunch again. Here's how the Cubs will line up tonight against the Dodgers in Game 5 of the National League Championship Series: Here is tonight's #Cubs lineup.NLCS Game 5 preview: https://t.co/iReetvnkgl pic.twitter.com/ho2MCowtqN— Chicago Cubs (@Cubs) October 19, 2017 I had thought Joe Maddon might give Ian Happ a start, but instead Ben Zobrist will play right field in place of Jason Heyward, who has slumped badly this postseason. You can be sure that if the Cubs have the lead in the late innings, Heyward will be in the game for defense, as he was iin Game 4. Joe...

Cubs NLCS Game 4 lineup: Albert Almora back at leadoff

And Jason Heyward will sit. Here’s how Joe Maddon is lining up his team for tonight’s Game 4 of the National League Championship Series: Here is tonight's #Cubs lineup.NLCS Game 4 preview: https://t.co/B1PLkmw2uV pic.twitter.com/Siv90cQmzV— Chicago Cubs (@Cubs) October 18, 2017 Against Dodgers lefty Alex Wood, Joe is leading off with Albert Almora Jr. Kyle Schwarber again hits second. That worked all right in Game 3, as Schwarber homered. Jason Heyward gets the night off against Wood, though you can be pretty sure that if the Cubs have a late lead, Heyward will be in the game...

Heyward's dive into first probably didn't cost Cubs

Jason Heyward came a fraction of a second from beating out a grounder to first base in the fifth inning of Game 2 of the NLCS, and he did it while diving into first base. Would it have been faster to run through?

Cubs NLDS Game 4 lineup: Jason Heyward in, Kyle Schwarber out vs. Stephen Strasburg

Cubs NLDS Game 4 lineup: Jason Heyward in, Kyle Schwarber out vs. Stephen Strasburg

The Nats have changed starters, so the Cubs tweaked their lineup. I don't know what caused the Nationals to change from Tanner Roark to Stephen Strasburg as the starter for today's game, but that has caused a change in the Cubs lineup: Strasburg to pitch for Nats. Heyward for Schwarber in #Cubs lineup— Bruce Miles (@BruceMiles2112) October 11, 2017 It's not yet clear whether this is a straight lineup swap, with Jason Heyward batting sixth where Kyle Schwarber was, but I think that's a reasonable assumption. Ben Zobrist moves over to play left field. This is clearly a better defensive...

Cubs NLDS Game 4 lineup: Jon Jay leads off again

Cubs NLDS Game 4 lineup: Jon Jay leads off again

Jason Heyward sits today. In Game 4, Joe Maddon is going with most of the guys who won Game 3 for him: Here is today's #Cubs starting lineup.NLDS Game 4 preview: https://t.co/TTI24GynJN pic.twitter.com/jm6PGsTYvT— Chicago Cubs (@Cubs) October 10, 2017 The biggest surprise here is the absence of Jason Heyward. However, Heyward is 0-for-18 in his career against Nats starter Tanner Roark, and you know how Joe likes to play matchups. Thus Ben Zobrist gets the start in right field, which is clearly not optimal defensivemy. On the other hand, Zobrist did make a nice defensive play at...

Jason Heyward was not in the Cubs' starting lineup Saturday for Game 2 of the National League Division Series presented by T-Mobile. At this time of year, that doesn't mean a day off. The Cubs players know manager Joe Maddon could call on them to do anything at any time.

Jason Heyward believes Cubs, Indians share second-half similarities

Jason Heyward believes it's more than a coincidence that the Cubs and 2016 World Series foe Indians have the best records in their leagues in the second half. "Something could be said about how long and hard it was to go through what we went through, win or lose a World Series, come back for spring...
