The Return Of The Heart Of The Order: Cubs vs. Dodgers at Glendale Preview, Thursday 3/18, 3:05 CT

Derrek Lee and Aramis Ramirez will both return to the starting lineup this afternoon. Complete lineup after the jump.

Meanwhile, entertaining reading can be had at the Dodger Divorce blog, which updates the sad saga of the McCourts several times a week. The current entry has the amazing story of how Jamie was somehow going to get herself elected President of the United States.

And people think this isn't going to affect the team. The question for the Dodgers is, how can they get it to not affect the team?

Also today, Bruce Miles has a summary of how various players are doing this spring so far and how that may affect whether some of them make the team or not.

Ryan Dempster makes his third start of the spring this afternoon. For the Dodgers, it will be Chad Billingsley, followed by Jeff Weaver and knuckleballer Charlie Haeger. There's also a rumor that Manny Ramirez might make his first appearance in the field this spring (he's been exclusively DH'ing up to now).

Lineup via tweet from Carrie:

SS Theriot, RF Fukudome, 1B Lee, 3B Ramirez, CF Colvin, LF Soriano, 2B Fontenot, C Soto, P Dempster
