  • Your lineup?

    With this team stinking it to high heaven in offense right now, how would you fill out the Cubs lineup in an attempt to score as many runs as possible? Here's mine.

    1. Cedeno SS
    2. Walker 1B
    3. Ramirez 3B
    4. Murton LF
    5. Barrett C
    6. Jones RF
    7. Hairston 2B
    8. Pierre CF
    9. Pitcher

    Cedeno and Walker can both get on base. They should be at the top of the order regardless of how fast they are. Ramirez, Murton and Barrett have 51 of the Cubs 122 RBI. Jones has an additional 17 RBI and has been pretty hot lately, provided he only plays against right-handers. Anything Hairston provides is a bonus, and Pierre gets shoved down to 8th as a sign that he needs to pick things up.

    And, when Lee comes back, Walker gets moved back to second base, Lee gets put in the 3rd slot, and everyone else moves down 1 spot except for Hairston, who is moved back to the bench.

    Hey anything that gives us runs I'll do with.

    Just a note to all the active members of BBF, I consider all of you the smartest baseball people I have ever communicated with and love everyday I am on here. Thank you all!

        Let the rival do this...

        1. Cedeno (SS)
        2. Walker (1B)
        3. Murton (LF)
        4. Barrett (C)
        5. Ramirez (3B)
        6. Hairston (2B)
        7. Jones (RF)
        8. Pierre (CF)
        9. Pitcher

        or...

        1. Cedeno (SS)
        2. Barrett (C) - call me crazy, but his bat could be used to get Cedeno home
        3. Walker (1B)
        4. Murton (LF)
        5. Hairston (2B)
        6. Ramirez (3B)
        7. Pierre (CF)
        8. Jones (RF) - he may get hot, but I put him here in case he freezes again
        Pitcher

        My dad is good with managing lineups, but ANYTHING but Neifi "I Suck" Perez. (he grounds out too much in my opinion)

                No, we drafted Ryan Harvey in the 2003 draft. You can read his scouting report here

                Line Drive: .356

                    What is the record for the worst hitting offense against lefties? I might have to look that up because I'm thinking the Cubs are trying to top that. A collective .192/.271/.282. They are so bad against lefties right now that it actually hides somewhat how good the Cubs are against righties. Granted they are not a great offensive team against righties but their lefty performance hides just how good Cedeno and Jones are against righties. Jones is the Cubs best hitter against right handed pitchers (though you would never know it by his seasonal stats) and Cedeno is the second best hitter the Cubs have against righties.

                    I might have to figure out away to find this team stat out.

                      I was able to check all the seasons going back to 2000 and if the Cubs maintained this futility they would be the worst offensive team against lefties in that time span and it wouldn't be close. Though Seattle this year is close so I guess if they maintained their pace someone would be close.

                        I was thinking of Ken Harvey. I don't know why either...

                        The Cubs have been pretty bad as a team the past couple years or so against lefties I believe. Derrek Lee was good against them, but now that he's gone there is no one to pull up those averages. It seems strange to me that this would be so with a lineup that has been dominated by right handed hitters the past few years (less so this year), but it is what it is I guess.

                              Man , somebody has to step up and be an On/Off-Field Leader for this Ballclub . The Management also needs to trade P's for a big bat so that we can start scoring more runs and start Winning Games , Being +.500 .
