Cubs Shake Up Lineup For Tonight's Game

Via Paul Sullivan at Chicago Breaking Sports, the Cubs’ lineup tonight will have several changes:

First baseman Derrek Lee, third baseman Aramis Ramirez and center fielder Marlon Byrd joined Ryan Theriot on the bench for Tuesday night’s game against the Pirates.

Tyler Colvin will play center and bat clean-up. Xavier Nady will be at first base and bat third behind right fielder Kosuke Fukudome and shortstop Starlin Castro.

Left fielder Alfonso Soriano will be in the No. 5 spot, followed by second baseman Mike Fontenot, third baseman Jeff Baker and catcher Koyie Hill behind starting pitcher Ted Lilly.

Good stuff. If this lineup produces, they should stick with it (except, I suppose, for putting Derrek Lee back in tomorrow).
