The Chicago Cubs are still busy trying to deal Ryan Dempster, Matt Garza and any other veteran player that could possibly bring a solid pitching prospect in return, but they've also got a series against the St. Louis Cardinals to worry about as well. On Friday, Travis Wood takes the mound for the Cubs opposite St. Louis starter Lance Lynn. Chicago has staggered their left-handed hitters against Lynn (a lefty) by batting David DeJesus leadoff, Anthony Rizzo third, Bryan LaHair fifth and Luis Valbuena eighth.

|1. David DeJesus (L) CF||1. Rafael Furcal (S) SS|
