Dizzy and Daffy, the Jon Jay leadoff thing, blue eggs, and other bullets CUBS lose. They can start a new streak today with Jake Arrieta on the bump. So cool to throw out tonight's ceremonial first pitch at the Trop. @RaysBaseball and @Cubs... two teams Pops loved so much. @CubsJoeMadd pic.twitter.com/wTzgSuHIqI— Beau Zimmer (@Zimm10) September 21, 2017 “The sun don't shine on the same dog's ass all the time.” — Catfish Hunter Thanks, Adam Frazier!

Chicago Cubs Lineup: La Stella at 3B, Bryant in LF, Schwarber Sits Against Bizzaro Kyle Hendricks

Well, this is certainly something. Jon Jay is leading off in center and Tommy La Stella is batting second and playing third. Kris Bryant moves out to left with Anthony Rizzo cleaning up, probably the best spots for them in the lineup. Ian Happ bats fifth and plays second, Javy Baez is at short, Jason … The post Chicago Cubs Lineup: La Stella at 3B, Bryant in LF, Schwarber Sits Against Bizzaro Kyle Hendricks appeared first on Cubs Insider.

Chicago Cubs Lineup: Jay Leads Off, Almora in CF, Schwarber Sits as Cubs Look to Chase Anderson

Jon Jay leads off in left, followed by Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo, with Ben Zobrist  cleaning up and playing second. Pretty much par for the course so far. But it gets a little interesting after that, as Joe Maddon has Albert Almora Jr. playing center in a rare start against a righty pitcher.

Chicago Cubs Lineup: Happ Leads Off, Schwarber Fifth as Cubs Try to Get Their Tie On

Hey, look at that, Ian Happ is hitting in the leadoff spot and playing center. His .351 OBP since the start of August is 18 points higher than Jon Jay has posted since then, so this makes pretty good sense. Kris Bryant moves back up into the two-hole and Anthony Rizzo bats third with Ben … The post Chicago Cubs Lineup: Happ Leads Off, Schwarber Fifth as Cubs Try to Get Their Tie On appeared first on Cubs Insider.

Chicago Cubs Lineup: Jay, La Stella Up Top, Schwarber Sits as Chilly Offense Tries to Ice Cole

Has there been a bigger surprise this season than Jon Jay? The veteran has been one of the most consistent players on a Cubs team desperately in need of them and he’ll be leading off in left tonight.

Chicago Cubs Lineup: Javy’s Back for Real This Time, Caratini at First as Cubs Try to Tattoo Brault

Joe Maddon’s rolling a lineup with some of that authentic September feel as the Cubs try to get off the mini-schneid in Pittsburgh. Jon Jay leads off in left, followed by Albert Almora Jr. in center and Kris Bryant at third. Okay, nothing too crazy yet. But then you’ve got Ben Zobrist playing right and … The post Chicago Cubs Lineup: Javy’s Back for Real This Time, Caratini at First as Cubs Try to Tattoo Brault appeared first on Cubs Insider.

Anthony Rizzo puts his name next to some Cubs greats

Anthony Rizzo tripled Saturday, his second such hit of the season and the 13th of his career. Its significance, which occurred during a five-run fourth inning of what turned out to be a 14-12 victory Saturday against the Braves, lied in the three RBIs attached to it. Jon Lester, Jon Jay and Kyle...

Chicago Cubs Lineup: Jay Leads Off, Schwarber Second, Zobrist Fifth as Lester Returns

Jon Jay is leading off and playing center this afternoon, followed by Kyle Schwarber in left. Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo follow, with Ben Zobrist batting fifth and playing second. The switch-hitting veteran has really been coming around, though I’m not sure how much I like him batting fifth. Javy Baez moves back up to … The post Chicago Cubs Lineup: Jay Leads Off, Schwarber Second, Zobrist Fifth as Lester Returns appeared first on Cubs Insider.

Chicago Cubs Lineup: Jay Leads Off, Zobrist Second, Happ in Right as Cubs Look to Nuke ‘Em

After a spectacular display of baseballing yesterday, Jon Jay is back at the top of the order. Batting second will be the man I had affectionately referred to as Zombrist not that long ago. But with a .343 wOBA and 109 wRC+ in August, Ben Zobrist is once again a productive member of the lineup. … The post Chicago Cubs Lineup: Jay Leads Off, Zobrist Second, Happ in Right as Cubs Look to Nuke ‘Em appeared first on Cubs Insider.

Jon Jay is leading off tonight and playing center as the Cubs look to take all three games from the Pirates.

Jon Jay, Ian Happ return to Cubs' lineup

Despite hitting a home run that sparked the Chicago Cubs to a 4-1 win, Ben Zobrist isn't in the lineup that will face Pittsburgh 11-game winner Ivan Nova. Zobrist is 6-for-35 lifetime against Pirates starter Ivan Nova. Jon Jay will handle the leadoff duties. After starting the last four games,...

Chicago Cubs Lineup: Zobrist Bats Third, La Stella Plays Third on Asher Wednesday

Assuming he’s able to make the team bus to the game, Ben Zobrist should remain in the starting lineup. With Kris Bryant out after being hit in the hand with a 3-0 fastball — thanks, Drew Storen — Zobrist slots in behind Jon Jay and Kyle Schwarber. Though the versatile vet had been hitting about … The post Chicago Cubs Lineup: Zobrist Bats Third, La Stella Plays Third on Asher Wednesday appeared first on Cubs Insider.
