Cubs Vs. Glavine: Lineup by the numbers

 Glavine might be 6 victories shy of 300 Wins but he could be just what the Cubs need; Barrett will most likely get the night off, Jones will be nowhere near the field and if Lee needs the night off, Ward actually has decent numbers off of Glavine. Here's the career Avgerages of present Cubs Vs. Glavine:

  • Ramirez...20 AB .500 Avg. 3 HR
  • Blanco....11 AB .455 Avg. 0 HR
  • Izturis...17 AB .412 Avg. 0 HR
  • Floyd.....33 AB .394 Avg. 2 HR
  • Ward......08 AB .375 Avg. 0 HR
  • Soriano...16 AB .375 Avg. 1 HR
  • Theriot...03 AB .333 Avg. 0 HR
  • Lee.......52 AB .288 Avg. 2 HR
  • Barrett...35 AB .229 Avg. 0 HR
  • Derosa....08 AB .125 Avg. 1 HR
  • Jones.....08 AB .000 Avg. 0 HR
  •  Some pretty good numbers there against a future hall of famer. Also, Zambrano in 6 ab's is hitting .333 with a HR off Glavine. So if Lou wants to go by the numbers tonight, the line-up should look something like this:
  • Soriano....LF
  • Theriot....2B
  • Lee/Ward...1B
  • Ramirez....3B
  • Floyd......RF
  • Blanco.....C
  • Izturis....SS
  • Pagan......CF
  • ....OR if I was filling out the line-up based on numbers:

    Theriot
    Izturis
    Soriano
    Lee/Ward
    Ramirez
    Floyd
    Blanco
    Pagan

    Actually as far as Soriano goes, until he shows he is 100% healthy, he should not be leading off, period. If Saturday's game is any indicator, I don't think he's even 90%. I think he looks good in the 3 hole.
