It’s almost here. In two days, the Cubs will kick off the 2011 Cactus League season. Mike Quade will announce today what the line-up is going to be. The only certainty is Aramis Ramirez will bat fourth.
Who will lead-off? My guess is Fukodome. It’s hard to predict what the order is going to be yet because it’s Cactus league play, however I’m excited spring training is set to begin. It’s been a long winter and somehow, once spring training starts, the snow melts quicker.
Even though, Mike Quade has said he doesn’t want to put Starlin Castro in the lead-off because he’s still too inexperienced, I’d say Why Not? Now’s the time to experiment. Castro is hungry enough and he had a hell of a season last year.
