TORONTO -- Finally arrived! Traffic, border crossings and rain made for road delays, but I'm off to the game shortly. Don't have too much to add nor much time to read everything that's been posted today; I'll catch up tonight & tomorrow. Courtesy of Bruce Miles, here's the rather unusual Cub lineup:

Theriot, SSHoffpauir, 1BLee, DHRamirez, 3BFukudome, RFSoto, CEdmonds, CFDeRosa, 2BPatterson, LF

vs. Tor -- vs. Cubs

Sean Gallagher is making his first interleague start. A. J. Burnett has faced the Cubs before, the last time in 2005 at Wrigley Field, when the Marlins beat Greg Maddux and the Cubs 15-5. Jim Edmonds has drawn 12 lifetime walks vs. Burnett.

This is another CSN+ game, so "check local listings" in Chicago. Also see the MLB.com Mediacenter.
