Cubs Intrasquad Game Thread, Thursday 2/21

New, 238 comments

Moving from workouts to an actual game, the Cubs will divide themselves into two groups and play an intrasquad game Thursday. Follow along... if you can.

USA TODAY Sports

The Cubs will play an intrasquad game this afternoon, beginning "around" 2 p.m. CST, according to reports from Mesa.

There is no broadcast coverage of this game. At all. Thus, to follow along, you'll have to check Twitter for play-by-play from some of the beat writers. Hopefully, between all of them, we can get a full account of what's going on at HoHoKam Park. My understanding is that this game will go five innings.

Here are the lineups:

White Team
DeJesus CF
Castro SS
Rizzo 1B
Soriano LF
Schierholtz RF
Navarro C
Stewart 3B
Barney 2B
Hairston DH

Blue Team
Valbuena 2B
Sappelt CF
Castillo C
Nelson 1B
Soler LF
Baez SS
Lake 3B
Jackson RF
Bogusevic DH

Pitchers for this game include Chris Rusin, Cory Wade, Trey McNutt, Nick Struck, Robert Whitenack and Rafael Dolis.

You'd think the White Team would be favored to win this game, but, in the immortal word of Joaquin Andujar: "Youneverknow."

Play ball! And, of course, discuss amongst yourselves.
