Cubs opening day 25-man roster projection.

Rotation: 1. Jeff Samardzija, 2. Edwin Jackson, 3. Travis Wood, 4. Matt Garza and 5. Scott Feldman.

Bullpen: Carlos Marmol, Kyuji Fujikawa, James Russell, Shawn Camp, Michael Bowden, Carlos Villanueva and Hector Rondon.

Lineup: 1. David DeJesus CF, 2. Starlin Castro SS, 3. Anthony Rizzo 1B, 4. Alfonso Soriano LF, 5. Nate Schierholtz RF, 6. Welington Castillo C, 7. Ian Stewart 3B and 8. Darwin Barney 2B.

Bench: Dioner Navarro, Luis Valbuena, Dave Sappelt, Brent Lillibridge and Darnell McDonald.

15 day Disabled List: Scott Baker.

My biggest concern is that Russell is the only lefty in the bullpen, However Hisanori Takahashi, Chris Rusin, Brooks Raley and Dontrelle Willis will all be at Triple A Iowa.
