Cubs Opening Spring Game Lineup

Here is the lineup for Cubs vs. the Giants Thursday-

1. Theriot SS
2. Cedeno 3b
3. Fukudome RF
4. Lee 1B
5. Murton LF
6. Soto C
7. Cintron 2B
8. Pie CF
9. Dempster P

I imagine a lot of players will see the field on Thursday. It will be nice to see how Fukudome does in his first ST game as a Cub.

Jimbo... Demp was referring, as a joke, to Thurs Spring opener.

Zambrano also was joking at the Cubs Convention due to his struggles on Open Day the past few seasons.

But I think Lou has already said that he wants Z to start Open Day and Z has said he will do it.

But in my opinion... I wouldnt mind Lilly starting. Not so much the Open Day "jinx" the Z has... but because it would allow us to move Hill into the 3 spot while still breaking up him and Lilly. Right now Lou has it where Lilly is 2 and has pushed Hill back to 4 solely because of the fact of needing to break up the leftys... as opposed to based on talent and skill level.

I dont know about you guys... but the thought of any of Marquis, Demp, or Lieber in the 3 spot makes me nervous!
