Tonight's lineup a potential preview
Manager Joe Maddon said tonight's lineup "could be real close" to what he uses for the Opening Day.
That's hardly set in concrete knowing how often Maddon shifts things around during a season, but it is an interesting peek into how he wants to set things up, to avoid having too many lefthanders bunched together, specifically with Matt Joyce, a lefty, second and switch-hiting Ben Zobrist fourth.
He said there were a few things he was still thinking about changing, and one of those would be flipping Joyce and Zobrist. But otherwise he likes the way it alternates righties and lefties and the way it flows.
Also, Jose Molina is likely to be the catcher.
The lineup will have a different look against lefty starters.
